In this hands-on micro workshop, Jon will show you how to create a chatbot using Dexter, a company that makes building chatbots easy and accessible. Then he’ll show you how to make the chatbot emotionally aware using Algorithmia. Our open marketplace that hosts over 4,000 algorithms and microservices that are all available via a scalable API endpoint.
Jon will also go through some use cases covering why you would need a chatbot, especially one enabled with machine learning and provide some examples of other machine learning algorithms that work well in chatbots, but aren’t covered in the demo.
Please join us for a fun evening of food and drinks provided by Algorithmia and learn how to build an emotionally intelligent chatbot!

We’ve all read about machine learning in the headlines, but many iOS and Android developers haven’t made the leap to integrating machine learning intelligence into their applications. This is partly due to the time commitment needed to learn enough statistics to understand the math behind the models, and to determine which models are appropriate for your use case. Once a developer has this knowledge under their belt, they now have to move their trained model to production which requires a whole other set of skills, especially when it’s a deep learning algorithm that requires a GPU environment.
Between learning the algorithms and productionizing them for mobile devices, integrating ML into an application can seem like a daunting task. But there are big benefits to adding machine learning: you can take your mobile app from a basic CRUD architecture, to much more advanced uses:
- adding nudity detection, to automatically filter out unsafe images
- suggesting tailored content and products to users based on individual behavior
- classifying images for a marketing campaign in real time
- …and hundreds more
Fortunately, there is an easier way. You don’t have to be an expert in machine learning to take advantage of its benefits. And if you are an expert, you can host your models for free in our scalable, serverless AI cloud. Read More…
Just like a music producer creates a beat, then combines it with instrumentals and a baseline to form something catchy that lyrics can be applied to… developers need a way to compose algorithms together in a clean and elegant way.
Whether you’re creating a sentiment analysis pipeline for your social data or doing image processing on thousands of photos, you’ll need an easy way to combine the various tools available so you aren’t writing spaghetti code.
It isn’t always easy to combine the libraries you need. Sometimes a library or machine learning model is written in a different language than the one you’re using. Other times there might simply be a performance difference between languages which (is why we chose Rust to create a Video Metadata Extraction pipeline). And even though GitHub offers thousands of libraries, frameworks, and models to choose from, it’s sometimes difficult to find the one you need to solve your problem.
To solve these problems — and allow you to write elegant code while using machine learning models — Algorithmia provides an easy way to find, combine, and reuse models regardless of language. Each one gets a RES API endpoint, so you can mix & match them with each other and with external code. Read More…
The new Open Images dataset gives us everything we need to train computer vision models, and just happens to be perfect for a demo! Tensorflow’s Object Detection API and its ability to handle large volumes of data make it a perfect choice, so let’s jump right in…
We often get asked about if we’re planning on adding any non-English NLP algorithms. As much as we would love to train NLP models on other languages, there aren’t many usable training datasets in these languages. And, due to the linguistic structure of these languages, training with pre-existing approaches doesn’t always give the best results.
Until better training sets can be generated, one passable solution is to translate the text to English before sending it to the algorithm. Read More…
