How Large Language Models Are Turning Call Recordings Into Gold
AC-06
AI is exploding in 2022. OpenAI's release of Instruct-GPT in January ushered in a new era of AI, which understands natural language, human dialog and code equally well, and can perform tasks across all three mediums through natural language instruction. This turns large piles of unstructured data, such as call recordings, into natural-language mineable databases to answer questions like: - What's my call resolution rate? - What can my CSRs do better? - Action item tracking - Detailed transaction tracking - Caller intent - Call summarization ...and much, much more. This talk will walk through the high-level capabilities, demonstrate the functionality, and provide an overview of an architecture which could perform this analysis at scale.

Join this presentation to brush up your knowledge on leveraging the "stir_shaken" OpenSIPS module in order to build open-source, production-ready STIR/SHAKEN services. "Authentication?"

I will address the difficulties we have had with persistent storage, dynamic configurations, networking, security, and failure recovery. I will compare this architecture to other iterations we have been through including LXC based, ProxMox VM based, and EC2 instance based, showing why we think this k8s based architecture is the next generation.
