Conversational AI @ Facebook


Conversational AI is becoming a key part of various products at Facebook, including Portal, Messenger suggestions, Marketplace, recommendations, to name just a few. Being able to ship delightful conversational experiences means we also need to invest in solving hard research problems in areas such as language understanding, dialog management and language generation. In this talk, I will talk about some of the current work we're doing in these areas, as all as work we've done with Pytorch in order to enable our research scientists to quickly prototype and deploy advanced NLP models.


I manage the Natural Language Understanding group at Facebook Messenger. Before this, I was at Siri at Apple for 5 years, where I managed the Natural Language Understanding group. I’ve also worked previously at Yahoo on query understanding.
