Why You Can’t Have AI Without Linguistics

Welcome back to the Dialpad podcast! This season, we’re talking all about artificial intelligence (AI)—how it works, how far it’s come, and what lies ahead.

This episode, we’re joined by Dialpad’s own Director of Machine Learning, Simon Corston-Oliver. Join us as we explore the intertwined history of AI and linguistics (it’s a lot older than you’d think), and what makes computational linguistics so important to AI’s development.

Tune in and see:

  • Why you can’t have AI without linguistics
  • How language, dialects, and regional phrases factor into AI models
  • How to see through the hype around AI and spot the real deal (hint: look for real science, not just big claims)
  • And more!
