NLP for Conversational AI

ACL 2020 Workshop in Seattle, USA

For as long as artificial intelligence has been a goal of mankind, mathematicians, linguists, and computer scientists have dedicated their careers to empowering human-machine communication in natural language. While in recent years, the emergence of virtual personal assistants such as Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, and Cortana has greatly pushed the field forward, the development of these conversational agents remains difficult with numerous unanswered questions.

Following the huge success of the 1st NLP for Conversational AI workshop at ACL 2019 with 400+ attendees, the 2nd NLP for Conversational AI workshop will be a one-day event consisting of keynotes, posters, and panel sessions. The goal of this workshop is to bring together NLP researchers and practitioners in different fields alongside experts in speech and machine learning, to discuss the state-of-the-art in conversational artificial intelligence, to share insights and challenges, to bridge the gap between academic research and real-world product deployment, and to shed light on where the field is going.

Sound exciting? We are looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!
