Building Human Interfaces Powered by AI

A presentation at Web Unleashed in in Toronto, ON, Canada by Chris Heilmann

We are smack in the middle of a hype about AI and whilst we wonder if a robot will take our job tomorrow or a badly configured self-driving car will run us over we’re forgetting that AI can be a great way for humans to deal with machines and interfaces. Let’s use Natural Language Processing to allow for clever search boxes, let’s use Artificial Vision to create automatic alternative text and let’s use facial recognition for automatic tagging and collation. The clever bits of Facebook are now available to all of us as APIs. Let’s help humans embrace the revolution that is deep learning by showing them its benefits.
