Chatbots are all the rage. Or, at least they were a couple of months ago. You don’t need to go back far in time to see the full hype and disillusionment cycle. In April, VentureBeat declared a chatbot gold rush and then a short time later in October that chatbots suck (for now). How did this change in chatbot sentiment build so quickly?

Our theory is this: over the next decade, every knowledge worker will have an artificially intelligent assistant that will automate much of their busywork. Powered by machine learning, our assistant, Talla, does just that for human resources, marketing, and office management.
Several years ago, when I was new to the Boston startup scene, I was introduced to Sean Lindsay. We met for beers and instantly hit it off. Sean is one of those rare guys who loves to go out after work and talk about work. It's always been clear that Sean loves what he does. Over the years, we've had a lot more beers and dinners and other types of events together, and through our many conversations about business and technology, I new I wanted to work with Sean in some capacity. So I am very excited to announce that Sean has officially joined the Talla Board of Directors as an Independent Director.
Talla is working on an intelligent automated assistant for knowledge workers. If you have an interest in NLP, machine learning, cognitive science, and similar technologies, please send your resume to email@example.com. We are hiring for all kinds of roles.
