Read this article to learn what Compelo and Amelia have to say.

This year’s Digital Workforce Summit (DWS), held May 8 in New York City, addressed a wide variety of issues within the Artificial Intelligence (AI) market. Chief among these topics were business opportunities, industry regulation, workforce adjustments, and the ongoing improvement and evolution of AI.

An excellent analysis of the overarching DWS themes can be found in Compelo's recent coverage, which was based on discussions with Amelia CEO Chetan Dube and other company leaders at a pre-DWS media event. “AI has the power to free humans from the ‘shackles of the ordinary’ as the debate rages on about the increasing influence of the technology in the workplace,” author Dan Robinson writes, highlighting one of the key topics Chetan addressed during DWS.

In addition to Chetan, the author offers insight from Tracey Robinson, Amelia's Director of Cognitive Implementation, who addressed the concept of a hybrid workforce.

“Humans will be able to transition from those repetitive tasks into areas where they can use human intelligence and robots won’t be able to,” Tracey said. “So we see ourselves being able to pull humans out of jobs where they don’t spend the best of their time and use digital colleagues instead so people are working on the best tasks for them.”

Amelia senior advisor Anders Borg, who previously served as the Swedish Minister of Finance, also spoke during the pre-event media gathering. Anders spoke of the need for organizations to quickly adjust to the new paradigms created by advanced technologies.

“Organisations will need to be faster than normal in their response if they are to survive,” the author writes, summarizing a key focus of Anders’ commentary. “The upcoming rollout of 5G over the next 12 to 18 months will pose particular challenges, he believes, as increased connectivity will lead to an exponential rise in the amount of data created.”

The Intelligent Contact Center

Companies have spent decades implementing Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems in their call and customer care centers, but they've proven unable to keep up with customers' expectations.

In this white paper, we examine the benefits of an Intelligent Contact Center, where companies utilize Conversational AI-powered virtual agents to provide first-line resolution and support for customers, and augment human employees through AI and automation.

Download our paper to learn the benefits of this approach and why current IVR systems simply will not cut it in today’s hyper-paced digital landscape.
