Uber Opensources Plato
Alright guys, Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash briefing back again today talking about a recent announcement from the folks at Uber. Now, Uber, they’re not typically who you would think of as a voice platform company. And if you guys are following the financial results, they released their results yesterday and just got killed in the market. But they have a research arm there is an Uber AI research division. And so they’ve got a another sort of platform tool that’s like a dialogue flow or, you know, Amazon Lex, you know, so it is basically this Plato research dialogue system, and they’ve open sourced it released it on GitHub. So anybody can get the tooling and download it and play with it. It lets you use speech, text, structured information. It lets you basically build conversational agents. And so it’s kind of interesting, because they’ve open source the platform, and they’ve released all the libraries that you can use with it. And you can use your Python gear with it if your development shop that uses Python. So it looks like a kind of a modular system that consumes ontology and reads from databases and then then will in turn, allow you to do some interesting things with the dialogue system. So it’s just kind of an interesting development and interesting in the fact that Uber has an AI and everyone seems to believe artificial intelligence, the future and machine learning. So just interesting little development, and they want to open source that so that they can benefit from the things that open source springs where you basically bring a community of folks and developers into the process. So you get some lift that you otherwise wouldn’t get. So interesting work from the Uber team. That’s it guys that’s SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash briefing. We’ll be back again tomorrow. Thanks.
