IDG Discusses ‘Digital Darwinism’ with Amelia CEO Chetan Dube

May 30, 2019 • 1 minute read

CEO Chetan Dube was recently interviewed by IDG Connect to discuss how our suite of intelligent solutions helps companies stay competitive in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

In the natural world, species must constantly adapt or face extinction. The same existential concerns apply to companies that must adapt and pivot in order to survive a marketplace that is shifting faster than ever thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI). This competition in the face of rapid evolution was the subject of a recent feature in IDG Connect by journalist Marc Ambasna-Jones titled “AI is starting to drive survival of the fastest” (registration required) where he interviews Amelia (formerly IPsoft) CEO Chetan Dube.

The author interviewed Chetan from our Amelia City experience lab in our NYC headquarters to discuss AI’s impact on the modern enterprise, as well as the role of Amelia's suite of intelligent solutions in this new era. "There is a blurring of the lines between human cognitive capabilities and what machine cognitive capabilities are,” Chetan says, “and we are really starting to answer that ever-allusive Turing question: ‘Can machines think?’"

Chetan goes on to explain that these transformative technologies are “breaking down the old silos and allowing some unique business models to emerge." This rapid change brought about by AI is the Darwinist crux of the article: Just as the emergence of disruptive forces in the natural world would cause many species to fall by the wayside, the same could be said for businesses as well. The companies that do not, at the very least, take these disruptions seriously risk falling behind, if not falling into irrelevance altogether.

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.
