It's Monday morning, which means we'll kick this week off with another video from our DataLayer Conference earlier this year. This week, we're featuring Emile Baizel from Digit.
Emile Baizel took the stage at DataLayer as our eighth speaker. Emile is a full-stack developer Digit where he works to make the Digit bot smarter. And that's where Emile's inspiration for his talk came from.
Digit users engage with Digit through their bot who answers questions about their account like
what's my checking balance and
is my money safe and more humorous ones as
tell me a joke. They tried a few different approaches before going with their current bot that learns from past user questions to help answer future ones.
Emile talks about how they built their bot, why they chose MongoDB and Elasticsearch and how they use Node's event emitters.

We're in the planning stages for DataLayer 2018 right now so, if you have an idea for a talk, start fleshing that out. We'll have a CFP, followed by a blind submission review, and then select our speakers, who we'll fly to DataLayer to present. Sounds fun, right?
