FOCUS SESSION

The nine killer questions you need to ask about Conversational AI

Conversational AI may be the biggest enterprise buzzword in today’s “new normal”, but not all technologies are created equal. Having seen and heard it all, we’ve put together a seminar that will explain the key concepts you need to consider; and the vital questions you need to ask of vendors pushing their shiny wares. We’ll decode the technical jargon and tell you what really matters – and what’s just marketing hype.
