About this event

AI was a big part of the announcements at Google I/O. If you watched the keynote or any of the sessions, you probably heard someone mention the Google Assistant or Actions on Google. Whether you have or haven't, we're going to discuss how to make a simple voice interaction for the Assistant and look at some deeper use cases for the platform.

Both technical and non-technical attendees can build Google Assistant apps! The title of this event is intentionally not "Developing for the Google Assistant" because a basic interaction takes no code. is one of the most common conversational language processing platforms used when creating applications and interactions for the Google Assistant.

Feel free to look at and Actions on Google before the meetup. Attendees are more than welcome to present any applications they've built for the Google Assistant or any other AI platform for imaginary bonus points.

• Networking at 6:00 
• Event starts at 6:30

There will be pizza, swag, and giveaways, so don't miss it!
