The Voicebot Podcast

Oct 31, 2020

Dr. Dave Patterson earned a PhD in artificial intelligence at Ulster University where he also led an AI research lab. He also has degrees in computer science and biochemistry. Dave spent 15 years as a senior lecturer at Ulster University before leaving to become the founding CEO of Sophia, an advanced search technology company that helped online publishers match advertising to reader interests. In 2017, Sophia Search was acquired by Aiqudo where Dave and his team added NLU capabilities to the Aiqudo action engine. 
Today we talk about AI, NLU, NLP, semiotics and symbolic language representations, and much more. We break down how Aiqudo's architecture is different from other popular voice assistant platforms and how that enables higher efficiency in NLU training through unsupervised learning as well as semantic understanding accuracy.
