Announcing our Upcoming AMA Series: L3-AI Speakers

Hey Rasa @community

The L3-AI conference brings together speakers from all over the world who are experts in the conversational AI community. During the conference, they’ll be sharing their work building truly interactive AI assistants.

But before we kick off L3-AI on June 18th, we want to give you a chance to get to know some of our speakers. We’ll be hosting Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions here in the forum, featuring three of our L3-AI speakers.


  • Dr. Catherine Breslin, Machine Learning Scientist
  • Alan Nichol, Co-Founder & CTO, Rasa
  • Julian Gerhard, CTO, SUSI & James GmbH

What: 3 AMA sessions about conversational interfaces, machine learning, and building advanced AI assistants


Here in the Rasa forum! Check each speaker’s bio below for links to their AMA thread.


June 4-10. Check each speaker’s bio to find out when they’ll be scheduled, and when you can begin pre-submitting questions.


Three days before each scheduled AMA, we’ll open the thread to pre-submitted questions. Once we open the threads, you’re free to ask our speakers anything (especially as it relates to conversational interfaces and NLU :wink:). On the day of the scheduled AMA, our guest speakers will be available live for one hour to answer both presubmitted and live questions in the designated forum thread. Be sure to react to other questions you’re interested in, so speakers can see which questions have the most community interest :cowboy_hat_face:At the end of the AMA, we’ll close the thread, but you can catch our guest speakers again at L3-AI!
