****THIS MEETUP HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**** 

(Originally scheduled for 3rd May 2018 at 7:00 pm)

Speaker: Matthias Gallé

Abstract: Until very recently, chatbots were hailed as the death of apps, natural-language interactions as the interface of the (very near) future and natural-language toolkits sprouted like mushrooms. The question is: where are all the chatbots in 2018? In this talk we will see a bit of the history of dialogue systems, what makes automating dialogue hard and cover the most common frameworks and methods to do so. Now that the dust is starting to settle after the last years of hype, there are a few breakthroughs that have been made in data-collection, methods and user acceptance. After mentioning those we will have a open discussion about the possibilities in the future.
