“In a recent study commissioned by Verint, 32 percent of consumers said they rarely or never feel understood by a chatbot. These expectations are fuelling the next generation of chatbots that are more intelligent, personalized and effective,” says Verint’s Heather Richards, vice president, go-to-market strategy, Digital-First Engagement. “Verint is honoured to be recognized for its innovation in conversational AI to meet changing consumer behaviours and needs and ultimately improve customer engagement.”
The mission of the AI Breakthrough Awards is to honour excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of AI and machine learning related categories, including AI platforms, deep learning, smart robotics, business intelligence, natural language processing, industry specific AI applications and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,950 nominations from over 18 different countries throughout the world.
“To meet the rising expectations of the modern digital-first customer, chatbots need to be fully intelligent systems that deliver advanced understanding, assistance and intelligence,” said James Johnson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. “This level of intelligence requires an approach that embraces the unique nature of messaging and enhances it with conversational AI, and Verint is delivering this modern chatbot intelligence, combining humans and bots in a single platform. With Verint IVA, there is finally a truly ‘breakthrough’ way to implement customer engagement solutions that work for both business and consumer.
