Democratizing software development using AI and NLU

David Pratt



David will discuss his journey from SDK development to his rationale for his latest project AiLA that aims to democratize software by combining artificial intelligence, multiplatform development, and decentralized networking. AiLA is an app that empowers teams to securely communicate, collaborate, and integrate technology into their operations so they can focus, compete and scale. AiLA uses artificial intelligence and natural language to create information technology that is simply integrated into team communication and collaboration. Most of all, it requires no programming.
