Amii’s Virtual AI Meetup Recap – March 18, 2021

On March 18, 2021, participants gathered digitally to watch and participate at the AI Meetup. The event featured:

Reg Ouellette, VP of Engineering & Alex Trad, Director of Business Development from
Chata Technologies Inc.

Chata develops innovative solutions that solve the complex problem of data access with the power of natural language processing (NLP), natural language understanding (NLU), and dynamic query language generation. Chata’s flagship solution, AutoQL, dynamically translates natural language to database query languages. This technology enables non-technical business software users to get the data they need to do their jobs just by asking questions in their own words.

Join Reg and Alex as they discuss the importance of high-quality training data for successful AI development. They’ll also talk about Chata’s approach to automating the training data generation process and how valuable this approach is for the future of AI in business applications and beyond. To illustrate, they’ll demo some of Chata’s machine learning models (trained on a corpus of data that has been automatically generated) through AutoQL’s front end widget, Data Messenger.
