A new artificial intelligence technology startup, Semantic Machines, has raised $12.3 million in new funding towards technology that goes beyond understanding commands to understanding conversations. Venture Beat brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Artificial intelligence startup Semantic Machines raises $12.3 million.”

Conversational AI represents a new paradigm, enabling computers to communicate, collaborate, and understand while accomplishing tasks. The startup is building tools that third-party developers will be able to use.

Artificial intelligence continues to be a popular focus for most of the field. Deep learning involves training artificial neural networks on large sets of data and then getting them to make inferences about new data. This technique has led to advancements in the field of speech recognition.

As this technology continues to evolve and be used in a variety of applications, it has never been more important to have someone with the expertise and knowledge handling your content, developing your taxonomies, and making your information findable.
