Let Your Bots Do the Talking

In my latest article for No Jitter, I take a look at you can telephone-enable bots.  This is very cool stuff! Let Your Bots do the Talking

The Prokop Hospital Virtual Agent

To know me in real life is to know that I have a hard time sitting still.  If I see a dirty dish in the sink, I wash it.  If my lawn needs mowing, I’m out there with the mower.  My idea of relaxation is a 40-mile bike ride. This bleeds into my programming life […]

Call the Midwife — a Patient to Nurse Smart Speaker Bot

I decided to have a little fun today and expand on what I have been doing with bots.  This time around, I created the prototype of an application that allows hospital patients to request a nurse via a bedside smart speaker.  While my bot is still pretty simplistic, the idea it explores can be expanded […]

Three Questions with Andrew and Andrew (A Video Conversation)

I will just come out and say it.  I hate seeing myself on video.  Call it vanity or call it insecurity, but I always think I look dorky.  So, it was with great trepidation that I accepted Andrew Maher’s invitation to virtually sit with him for three questions.  However, after all the dust settled and […]

Using AI and IoT to Orchestrate Smart Parking

I have been a “professional” programmer since 1983 (yes, I am that old) and still get a kick out of seeing how other people use my software.  In this case, Thomas Roemer from Avaya has created a smart parking solution that employs the artificial intelligence and IoT integration software I created.  It’s a cool video […]

Developing a Future-Focused Mindset

As much as I enjoy seeing my articles posted on blog sites other than SIP Adventures, I get an even bigger kick from finding articles written about me.  🙂 Okay, I am not that vain (mostly), but if I am entitled to 15-minutes of geek fame, Eric Krapf’s, fun and flattering missive on the work […]

Smart Speakers: From the Kitchen to the Boardroom

In my previous article here at SIP Adventures, I introduced you to the work I am doing with smart speakers and IoT.  This week’s article in No Jitter, takes that work even further and demonstrates how smart speakers such as Google Home can be integrated with WebEx Teams.  Be sure to check it out! Smart […]

Building IoT Bots With CloudHawk and Google Home

I have been programming since I was a senior at Coronado High way back in 1975.  Yes, I am that old.  While today’s projects are light years beyond the simple things I once wrote in BASIC and Fortran, the thrill of creating something amazing out of a bunch of number and letters is still just […]

Webinar: Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, and Breeze

Are you interested in how IBM Watson, Amazon Lex, and/or Wit.ai can be used to build bots?  If not, you should be.  This is the future of how we will interact with customer care centers.  Actually, it’s the present and the chances are pretty good that you have already chatted with a machine and not […]

Speaking of Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing…

I recently sat down with my friend and partner in technology, Mark Fletcher (Fletch), to talk about artificial intelligence and natural language processing.  I hope you enjoy hearing what we had to say about what might be the most exciting and revolutionary technology of our time.
