Own The Conversation - Issue 62
Featured jobs from bot-jobs.com, Conversational AI career enhancing content and events to attend.
Welcome to the latest edition of Own The Conversation! I’m fresh from the 5th World Chatbots & Voice Summit held in Berlin this week, a groundbreaking event exploring cutting-edge Conversational AI technologies. Over two days, industry leaders, innovators, and enthusiasts came together to share insights, tackle challenges, and forecast the exciting future of AI. From the transformative potential of chatbots in procurement to the intriguing world of empathy in AI, the summit was a vibrant testament to the endless possibilities that these technologies offer.
I live-tweeted both days as a mega Twitter thread per day, which you can take a look at here:
