Speech IVR With a Brain
Peter Voss, CEO - Smart Action Company, LLC

This talk describes a new technology that significantly increases the base functionality of speech IVRs. A dedicated intelligence engine, or “brain,” manages each live conversation. This engine integrates a number of general capabilities designed to offer sophisticated yet robust natural language self-service. These capabilities include dynamically tuning statistical language model speech recognition, natural language parsing and interpretation, built-in conversational skills and knowledge, and short- and long-term memory, as well as other cognitive abilities. Several practical examples of this technology are presented.
