Head Start Alabot

  1. 1. [email_address] CTO
  2. 2. <ul><li>Alabot™ vision and challenges </li></ul><ul><li>What is AI/NLP ? </li></ul><ul><li>Who is Alabot™? </li></ul><ul><li>Why Alabot™? </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Multi platform development </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Quick Demo </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>We are a company working on Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing algorithms. </li></ul><ul><li>Our vision is to “Talk Enable” any application and progressively enhance the reach and usability of local search, enterprise applications and user interface platforms. </li></ul><ul><li>Alabot™ , our first release, is equipped with AI and embedded with Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><ul><ul><li>The main challenge we faced while developing Alabot™ was around technology. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How do we make an application understand phonetics, content, multiple languages, take into account millions of iterations of text and also address scalability without affecting the functionality of the application? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It took us 400 days, many arguments, tearing up of excel sheets and dumping our business plan for the nth time, but we finally did it. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What follows now is a result of our efforts and we hope you like it. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Natural language processing (NLP) is a subfield of artificial intelligence and computational linguistics. </li></ul><ul><li>Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence that a system, machine or program demonstrates. With respect to an program or application AI is an algorithm or set of algorithms that can make decisions in a logical way. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal of NLP is to design and build software that will analyze, understand, and generate languages that humans use naturally, so that eventually the user will be able to address the application as though s/he were addressing another person. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><ul><ul><li>Given the nature of human conversation, the application could not be developed on the basis of standard inputs/queries and standard responses to these. The application would have to respond dynamically depending on the input/queries received. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Alabot’s algorithm, which consists  of a rule engine, NLP engine, parser and helper API hooks, understands these inputs/queries and smoothens the transactional process. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ala has been designed ground up to work as a Rapid Application Development Platform , where business rules can be applied, NLP and the phonetic engine configured  thereby enabling the application to be up and running in a few weeks across all connected  mediums. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Enough with the spiel already!! What does Alabot ™ really do? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It successfully removes the barrier of language, spelling, syntax, style, content and sentence structure across a Mobile device, Instant Messenger and the Web. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It allows anyone, anywhere to have access to crisp relevant data “easily”. No more sifting through tons of data or remembering jargon. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It enables users to get any information they require, buy or sell any goods or products and interact with other users with great ease and almost instantly. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Any other application, be it in the travel vertical or in enterprise domain (CRM, Banking, Insurance) can be “Talk Enabled” by Alabot. It eliminates any waiting time for a user to get information details, and makes short codes and complex syntax structures redundant. Ask Ala and he will get you the data 24/7. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><ul><li>Hmm ok ok we get it – but how will you monetise it? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> Good question indeed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We knew this would come up. Foresight and an acute desire of seeing some money in the bank led us to build the “AlaSense” module which sits behind our main engine. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>AlaSense is our intuitive, adaptive, location based advertising platform. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The challenge here was to embed adverts / deals which are non invasive and, most importantly, relevant </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(The next 2 slides will demonstrate the capability of Alasense) </li></ul></ul>
