The techniques presented herein provide an artificial intelligence (AI)-based conversational agent to allow communications between (i.e., “translate for”) a push-to-talk (PTT) client and endpoints that support real-time, bi-directional conversation, including voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) endpoints (also referred to as IP telephony endpoints) and endpoints running multimedia applications that allow bi-directional, real-time conversation. These techniques are applicable when PTT deployments allow direct calls between endpoints that support real-time, bi-directional conversation (e.g., VoIP endpoints) and PTT endpoints. During these calls, the techniques may allow a caller from the real-time, bi-directional conversation endpoint to have a real-time or nearly real-time conversational experience while the PTT user has a start-stop PTT experience.
