AI and Cybersecurity

Monday, June 24 | 1:30 – 5:00 pm

William Meisel imageChair: William Meisel, PhD, President, TMA Associates

Speech recognition and natural language processing technology allows interacting with digital systems using human language in text or speech. An organization can use the technology to improve customer service, not only in the call center, but through chatbots on web sites, apps on mobile phones, messaging services, home speakers, through the major personal assistants, and more. The technology can also make personnel more effective within organizations in tasks such as using software systems or on-the-job training. This seminar discusses innovative applications deployed by agencies and the tools available to help develop conversational solutions and practices that make those solutions effective.
