Cassandra Darley: Enhancing Right Brain Thinking in Conversational AI
In honor of Women’s History Month, we are highlighting the women of Aktify. Their contributions are creating the world’s most advanced conversational AI.
Cassandra Darley, Aktify AI product manager, is a skeptical consumer. She rolls her eyes at mass emails, unintelligent chatbots, and robo dials. But she’s convinced automated systems don’t need to be so tedious.
“Businesses just haven’t yet figured out better ways to apply the incredible power of technology to the right use cases,” says Darley. “The way many businesses use technology today would probably look like ancient people using the first wheel for a frisbee.”
Darley is ready to tackle the challenges of bringing machine learning to the market. She points out that businesses and consumers are just beginning to adopt AI tools into daily routines.
“We are in the infancy,” she says.
Conversational AI is the perfect sandbox to showcase Darley’s blend of technological prowess and creative flair. She’s a skilled violinist and former member of the alternative folk band, St Boheme. And she’s no stranger to language syntax and editing, having earned her B.A. in English from the University of Utah.
She believes data scientists, engineers, designers, product managers, and end users can all learn together in this setting.
Darley views Aktify as the team best poised to master conversational AI. It’s a collective mind, she says, composed of experts from diverse fields, focused on a specific opportunity.
“Dialogue will replace most technological interfaces we use every day. I’m excited to personally find small ways to make technology more intelligent and helpful.”
