The IT Crewe February Meetup – Telematics & Chatbots

Hosted by The IT Crewe

The event will be held at Crewe Alexandra in the family suite round the back of the main building. Crewe Alex have said that we can park on site (right by the building – not the pay and display opposite). Once parked, walk towards the top end of the car park near the iron gates and hopefully one of the IT Crewe organisers will be there to direct you.

6:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Arrive, have a bite to eat and a drink whilst you get to know your fellow Techies!

7:00 pm – 7:05 pm
Welcome by Rosanne Meek – Brief intro to the evening

7.05 pm – 8.35 pm Talks (with break in-between):

Gary Pretty
“ChatBots – what can you implement today?”

In this session Gary grounds the ChatBot concept and provides an overview of what businesses can implement today. Gary will walk through a real world example for a customer support ChatBot, exploring the various channels available, such as Facebook and web chat, natural language recognition and other common ‘bot features.

“Driver Behaviour: Sorting the good and the bad”

I am a former computer science researcher who has been working in the IT industry for 15 years developing business applications with a passion for innovation and new technologies. I will be talking about experiences working on our vehicle tracking platform and how we analyse driver behaviour.
