If you haven't heard, there is a local conference on the area of AI that relates to communicating with computers using human language ("natural language"), the Conversational Interaction Conference http://www.conversationalinteraction.com/ in San Jose, starting Monday. (Amazon's Alexa is an example.) Talks focus on what companies can do to take advantage of this rapidly improving technology to improve operations or better engage their customers.
Try to attend if you can. Conversational Interaction is a paradigm shift similar in scope to the shift to mobile and to eCommerce before that. I will be attending.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a paid event ($1295). Only scheduling this as a meetup because the email feature is not working.
