Rasa Summit 2021 is in less than two weeks!
We’re thrilled to announce the speaker list and agenda for the event. The conference spans 3 days of talks plus 2 days of pre-conference workshops, adding up to a full week of knowledge sharing and networking. We’ll kick things off with workshops on Feb 8-9, following that with the complete conference on Feb 10-12.
This year, the Rasa Summit is fully online, allowing us to invite more of the community, across more time zones, than ever before. For those who can’t attend the live event, we’ll be making recordings available on-demand after the talks conclude. The talks include something for everyone who works in and around conversational AI, including cutting-edge NLU research, product development, and production stories.
