Nice post! I am organizing a conference-hackathon at Kiev Polytechnic Institute, best scientific university of Ukraine, about Artificial Intelligence and deep learning real-world applications, and of course chatbots! So your post is inspiring for us!
I am looking for remote speakers (15 minutes on Skype…) to propose challenges to our crowd. The goal is to initiate new collaborations: recruitment, funding, consulting or outsourcing. Are you interested?
