Episode 69: What’s a Chatbot… and Why Should We Care?

Join host Megan Powers, her ‘Making a Marketer’ co-host Elizabeth Glau and Corey Moss as they welcome their guests:

Julius Moster – Master of Science student at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), researching chatbots, together with German company STIHL.

Chris Colleran – Co-founder and CTO of Sciensio.

Julius Moster lives in Karlsruhe, Germany. He’s currently working on his masters in Industrial Engineering and Management, which was also the focus of his undergrad studies–both at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He’s in the final stages of his studies working on his Master thesis: “Designing a guideline for the implementation of conversational AI in the production environment,” together with German company STIHL. He is analyzing opportunities of human-machine-communication in the production environment, especially the use of chatbots as an artificial intelligence tool that serves as an information/knowledge manager and personal assistant

Chris Colleran is Co-founder and CTO of Sciensio, he lives in Salt Lake City… Chris believes that in the near future, messaging will be a powerful enabler unlocking the full potential of predictive analytics, natural language processing and deep learning — redefining how companies interact with customers, employees, and things.

Many of us experience chatbots on a regular basis, but might not even know it! They are still quite new, and how they’re used is moving at a very rapid pace, which made our guest Julius Moster choose them as the focus of his masters thesis in his Industrial Engineering Management Master of Science program. Chris Colleran is at the helm of the technology at an (award-winning) event technology company called Sciensio that has developed a bot – eventbots – to help meeting and events organizers create a better experience for their staff and attendees. He actually created his very first bot for an party (aka, event) he was having at his house! From that Sciensio was born.

Please join us as our guests break down what chatbots are, and how they’re used, in a very easy to understand way on this episode of The AV Life.
