How to Build a Quokkabot

A presentation at Twilio Signal by Amy Kapernick

Quokkas are the happiest animal in Australia that surprisingly aren’t trying to kill you. But can you really be sure that what you’re looking at is a Quokka and not something more dangerous?

Let’s look at how we can build a quokka identifying chatbot, combining Twilio’s WhatsApp, MMS and SendGrid APIs with machine learning based image detection powered by Microsoft’s Custom Vision API.

Join me as we learn how to train and then link up an ML model across multiple communication channels to create an engaging, accessible chatbot. And of course lots of photos of quokkas.
