Virtual Assistants & Chatbots - The Next Big Thing in Customer Experience

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

Chatbots are increasingly part of the customer experience – whether to facilitate a new transaction or provide account support to an existing customer.  While many vendors are claiming to use machine learning and artificial intelligence in their virtual assistant applications, in truth, training content is at the heart of these systems. 

In other words, curated, structured content needs to be developed for these applications, rather than having the system ingest large amounts of unstructured content. 

What makes content appropriate for training?  How should organizations prepare for these types of systems?  How do the underlying processes that support the customer need to evolve to operationalize AI applications for customer service?

In this panel, we discuss:

  • The different types of robot virtual assistants used for support

  • How artificial intelligence powers these tools

  • The role of knowledge engineering

  • Practical steps toward deployment

Join our experts for an in depth discussion of “the next big thing” in customer experience.

The Missing Ingredient to Digital Transformation: Scaling Knowledge Communities and Processes

The holy grail of digital transformation is the seemingly conflicting goals of high levels of customer service and pressure to reduce costs. “Digital Transformation” has become an all-encompassing term – in a piece in this column about customer data platforms, I asked whether the term has lost its meaning: The phrase “digital transformation” can mean anything and everything — tools, technology, business processes, customer experience, or artificial intelligence, and every buzzword that marketers can come up with. Definitions from analysts and vendors include IT modernization and putting services online; developing new business models; taking a “digital first” approach; and creating new business processes, and customer experiences. The overarching objective of a digital transformation program is to improve end-to-end efficiencies, remove friction from information flows, and create new value streams that differentiate a company’s offerings and strengthen the customer relationship. Having assisted large global enterprises with building the data architecture, supporting processes, and governance for multiple digital transformations, in my experience, there are two broad classes of initiatives that seem to get funding and others that miss the boat in terms of time, attention, and resources.
