Conversational AI has received a huge push in the past few years with the introduction of virtual assistants like Cortana, Siri, Alexa and many more. They are becoming an integral part of many lives now.
To help developers build comprehensive conversational applications, Cisco has decided to open-source its MindMeld Conversational AI Platform. The MindMeld Conversational AI Platform will avail a set of practical tools that will help developers create such applications. In addition to this, the company is also releasing extensive documentation which is a step-by-step guide called the Conversational AI Playbook which will make it easier for the engineers to build modern conversational experiences. Cisco is making all of this available on its DevNet platform beginning today.
Making the announcement, Karthik Raghunathan, Cisco’s Head of Machine Learning wrote on the company blog post: “In open-sourcing MindMeld and providing rich developer resources, we can build a robust developer community that will change the way we interact and get work done in our workplaces.”
The conversational AI platform was originally created by MindMeld, a conversational AI company which the networking giant bought in 2017 in an effort to augment the development of conversational technology.
