The future of work is three-dimensional. And the good news is, it’s here now. It’s part of a new approach called cognitive collaboration that incorporates artificial intelligence with the right context with the right people to foster deeper human personalized connections.
AI is shaping the future of customer experiences and the contact center.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is creating a lot of excitement and there are good reasons for this. According to Forbes, 50% of IT professionals believe artificial intelligence and machine learning are playing a role in cloud computing adoption, growing to 67% by 2020. This week I will be speaking at UC Expo about the role that artificial intelligence is playing in advancing contact center productivity and efficiency, and in particular how this is benefiting the agent and customer experience.
Every few years a new-hype technology becomes the shining star. It sucks all the oxygen out of the room and becomes the headline darling for a while. The list of technologies that move the needle forward on managing the business better or help to grow a business are impressive.
AI-driven applications and cloud-based services have brought significant enhancements to many organizations. As time goes by, these technologies will become a necessity, especially when it comes to VoIP telephony, and here’s why. Contact center operations Highly automated VoIP technology enables businesses to manage their call centers easily and reduce the need for human intervention For […]
As George Box noted several decades ago, “All Models are essentially wrong, but some are useful”. The work of statistical analysis, and its modern day derivatives of Machine Learning and Deep Learning, continue to be bold attempts at capturing what are essentially complex activities into a much simpler set of equations, even if those equations themselves often seem esoteric and complex.
As any architect worth his brick and mortar will tell you, a solid foundation is the key to achieving the desired outcome of any substantial structure. This is certainly true when it comes to implementing a successful digital transformation with an eye toward maximizing the benefits of artificial intelligence and all of the other new technologies now available.
Movies have always created powerful mystique about artificial intelligence. For example, 2001: A Space Odyssey had the computer, Hal 9000, that recognized astronauts, spoke to them, and even locked the door to prevent an astronaut from entering the spacecraft.
We get asked all the time what “AI for IT” really means. Is it just a fancy way of saying “automation”, or is there more to the equation? Why is it so prevalent now?
Well, if we were to put together an “AI for IT” manifesto, it would go something like this:
…IT has never been more important, but IT must do more with less
Every company is a digital company.
Technological advancements have a tremendous effect on the healthcare industry. Something called machine learning is the first step toward artificial intelligence (AI) and it’s already streamlining service delivery for those in the medical profession.
In a recent IDC report IT decision makers believe 75% of enterprises applications will use AI by 2021. Artificial Intelligence is not a new solution in fact we have seen various cycles of excitement followed by lulls. What makes this cycle any different? Two words: Deep Learning
What is deep learning?
The early stages of World War II brought about many challenges.
