Symbl.ai Challenge - Go Beyond Speech Recognition with Conversation Intelligence APIs
1st Place: $1K in cash + $1K in Symbl.ai developer credits
2nd Place: $500.00 in cash + $500.00 in Symbl.ai developer credits
Question - Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Go beyond basic speech recognition, and enable applications to truly understand natural human conversations. Conversation intelligence enables you to build applications that not only recognize the spoken words, but also the context of entire conversations. This is easily achievable with various conversation intelligence solutions and APIs. For this challenge, leverage Symbl.ai's conversation intelligence APIs to build a unique application that transcribes and analyzes a single conversation stream, personal or otherwise, to extract actionable insights and analytics. Symbl.ai's APIs will provide all the AI you need, so just focus on building a cool app.Remember, the objective is to take your application beyond speech recognition, so all submissions must combine transcription with extracting intelligence and/or analytics to qualify.
Examples include building a virtual meeting assistant, analyzing a sales call, automated workflows based on sprint meetings, etc… the possibilities are only limited by your own imagination. Happy hacking!
Symbl.ai Challenge - Build an AI App that Understands Natural Human Conversations at Scale
1st Place: $2K in cash + $2K in Symbl.ai developer credits
2nd Place: $1K in cash + $1K in Symbl.ai developer credits
Question - Contact: email@example.com
Imagine having the ability to transcribe, analyze and extract intelligence from large quantities of conversations across video, audio and text channels by hitting a few endpoints? It’s actually pretty simple to do with Conversation Intelligence (CI) APIs. CI enables developers to take applications beyond just simple speech recognition, and build applications that understand natural human conversations… taking unstructured conversations, across various channels and modes, and converting it into structured intelligence and data. In this challenge, leverage Symbl.ai’s conversation intelligence APIs to analyze multiple conversations (the more streams the better), to accurately transcribe and extract actionable intelligence.
Examples include: analyzing sentiment across large volumes of call center agent calls, intelligence for coaching sales teams, summarizing large corporate meetings or conferences, etc… the possibilities are only limited by your own imagination. Happy hacking!
Simple transcription and speech recognition is not the focus here, it's all about extracting and leveraging the intelligence you get from conversations. Submissions must combine transcription with extracting intelligence and/or analytics to qualify.
