    Dialogflow Intents: Know what your users want [Basics 1/3]

    [MUSIC PLAYING] DANIEL IMRIE-SITUNAYAKE: Hey, everyone. This is the first of three videos that will teach you the basics of Dialogflow, an incredible tool for building conversational experiences that help your users get things done. My name’s Dan Imrie-Situnayake and I’m a developer advocate at Google. In this video, we’re going to talk about intent matching, which is how we figure out what a user wants. When we’re building a conversational experience, our number one task is to understand what our users are saying. With Dialogflow, our fundamental tool for doing this is the intent. We create an intent for anything a user might request. In this example, we’ll create…

    Map of Computer Science

    We built computers to expand our brains. Originally scientists build computers to solve arithmetic, but they turned out to be incredibly useful for many other things as well: running the entire internet, lifelike graphics, artificial brains or simulating the Universe, but amazingly all of it boils down to just flipping zeros and ones. Computers have become smaller and more powerful at an incredible rate. There is more computing power in your cell phone then there was in the entire world in the mid 60s. And the entire Apollo moon landing could have been run on a couple of Nintendos. Computer science is the subject that studies what computers can do.…

    Life at Amazon Cambridge Development Centre

    I have a always been someone who likes to tinker and I have been told I have real crazy ideas sometimes. But that is actually encouraged here. With Prime Air we are basically looking at how to get packages to our customers, safely by air, within 30 minutes of them ordering. This means totally revolutionising how packages get delivered. This isn’t science fiction, we are making this a reality. My team developed the Japanese text and speech voices for Amazon Alexa and Amazon Polly. The first time I heard Alexa speaking Japanese I was kind of emotional. I think we are developing truly world technology here, not just technology that…

    Cognitive Automation and AI in Business with Aera Technology and David Bray (CxOTalk)

    We’re exploring the concept of cognitive automation. I’m delighted to speak with two gentlemen who will explain these concepts and what they mean for business. Fred, tell us briefly about Aera Technology. We build the technology that enables self-driving enterprise. I’ll speak more about what it is, but it’s fundamentally a cognitive operating system. I’m being a bit jargon-y here, but a system that automates how decisions are made and executed primarily in large organizations. David, tell us about your background and what you’re doing. My background is Executive Director for what’s called the People-Centered Internet coalition. We strive to do projects that demonstrate how the Internet can be used…

    The Most Overlooked Aspects of eCommerce Product Recommendations

    – [Liad] There is an industry myth about product recommendations, that it is all about the algorithm. But what we have found over the five, six years that we’ve been in business, is that the most underplayed aspect of efficient recommendations is the ability to do smart merchandising in real time based on who the user is, and not just based on what the products are. So tying in your CRM strategy, your CRM segments, your first party and your third party, and to be able to smartly merchandise different sets of products to these customers, is generating a lot of results. One of the, I would say most, overlooked…

    Build a Cross-Platform Mobile App in 30 Minutes with Firebase (Cloud Next ’18)

    JAMES DANIELS: I’m James Daniels. I’m an engineer on the Firebase team. Who here has used Firebase before? Cool. Got a good representation in the room. So I’m going to recap a couple little things. So it might be a repeat for those of you familiar with the product. And then I’m going to jump into a live demonstration. I’m going to do some coding, hopefully. That’s the live demo warning. I’m on stage in front of a lot of people writing code. Sometimes things happen. But I’m lucky because I have a lot of rubber ducks here to help me out. So I’m an engineer on the Firebase team.…

    How We Migrated Over 35k E-commerce Stores to Google Cloud (Cloud Next ’18)

    [MUSIC PLAYING] BARDIA DEJBAN: Thank you for joining this session where I get to be the messenger to the team’s great work in accomplishing an amazing migration. Actually, there’s been a single thread that’s been common among all the leaders and the decision-makers that I’ve been talking with in the past week. And that is that there’s always one thing– one thing that leads up to the decision and one thing that leads up to the catalyst– to be able to actually make the decision to move to cloud. And for us, this was it. It was a moment of clarity when our head of IT delivered this message to…
