  • AI for Identity Verification: Going Beyond the Buzzwords
    AI for Identity Verification: Going Beyond the Buzzwords
    Parker Crockford – Director of Policy & Strategic Accounts, Onfido | Mohan Mahadevan – VP of Research, Onfido Recorded: Aug 13 2019 55 mins
    The way we verify our identities is changing. With traditional enterprises evolving and taking their operations fully digital, and newer all-digital businesses are growing exponentially, it makes sense that identity verification and KYC move online too. But in a remote setting, it’s hard for businesses to scale up their user onboarding without also increasing risk. Now, many are turning to AI-based solutions to meet that need.

    From hybrid to augmented, machine learning to deep learning, there are lots of new approaches to identity verification out there. But how can businesses tell the difference between buzzword and true black box, and what are the benefits of each?

    In this discussion, we’ll decode the various different applications of AI to the identity verification problem. We’ll also discuss how to use these new technologies to increase efficiencies at scale and provide exceptional customer experiences.

    Join this expert panel webinar to hear a dynamic panel discussion on:
    -The challenges of traditional methods of identity verification, and why enterprises are turning to AI
    -The different ways AI can be applied for more efficient identity verification
    -The benefits of a hybrid human-AI approach
    -A new identity reality: How will we be able to use our identities in future

  • Combining  #3brainselling with Neuroscience to accelerate growth
    Combining #3brainselling with Neuroscience to accelerate growth
    Mark Erskine: ISM Fellow Aug 27 2019 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Reasons to Attend:

    Understanding brain development since caveman times provides the key to influencing others especially given the massive advances in neuroscience over recent years which has taken the art of persuasion beyond psychology into brain chemistry. The Reptilian brain, the Limbic system and the Neo Cortex can be likened to your “Gut”, “Heart” and “Head” brain. These three brains transmit data constantly to each other when we make decisions but if we want sales success we must first understand our own preferences by using behavioural profiling and then diagnose which of these dominates the customers brain to stimulate sales, increase conversion ratios and shorten sales cycles.

    Key Takeaways

    •Understand how the human brain has developed and how to use this in sales
    •Discovering your own behavioural brain preferences is the critical first step to managing your selling style
    •Learn what techniques stimulate which part of the brain and how to leverage them
    •Understand why selling has to stimulate each part of the brain to ensure success
    •Learn why so many training methodologies and programmes are too one dimensional to succeed.

  • Facing The Facts: The State of Personalization Today
    Facing The Facts: The State of Personalization Today
    Eric Fullerton, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Acquia, Ted Ottey, Product Manager, Acquia Aug 28 2019 9:00 am UTC 49 mins
    We’ve been talking about the value of personalization for ten years (or maybe more), and you’ve likely read dozens of articles explaining how personalization can help drive business results.

    The personalization space has fundamentally shifted. Once a “nice to have” and competitive advantage, personalization is now a requirement for customer experience focused organizations. In fact, 89% of digital businesses are investing in personalization, meaning if you aren’t doing so today, you’re already behind the competition.

    That said, building a personalization practice is still a challenge for a lot of organizations today. Some are lacking strategy from the outset, knowing they want to “do personalization” but not exactly sure what that means or how to start. Others have a clear sense of what they want to do, but are constricted by the bottleneck that exists between marketing and development teams.
  • Data Cleanup with Semantic Technologies — Cleaning Up Your Data Landfill
    Data Cleanup with Semantic Technologies — Cleaning Up Your Data Landfill
    Andreas Blumauer & Bruno Wildhaber Aug 28 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data growth and chaotic data management is causing ever-increasing costs and user discontent. More and more “digital landfills” are created — completely obsolete data that continues to be stored and managed unnecessarily. International studies show that around 70-80% of all stored data is of no use to the organization, increasing the overall cost for managing data.

    How can the valuable data be separated from the Redundant, Outdated, Trivial (ROT) data which is duplicated, obsolete, or has no meaning for the organization?

    The traditional approach is to manually identify and clean files, folders, data structures and the like. But this manual approach is limited, merely because of the amounts of data stored in an average organization. Consequently, an automated solution is required. An important starting point is the automatic classification of all data in order to be able to eliminate ROT data objects continuously.

    Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Communication Wrangler with his special guests, Andreas Blumauer, CEO and founder of Semantic Web Company and Bruno Wildhaber, Managing Partner at Swiss Information Governance Competence Centre. Andreas and Bruno will look into success criteria of data cleanup but also discuss the governance model.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • How is the cleanup process set up?
    • What is the role of semantic technologies and how can they support the cleanup process?
    • How to identify “valuable” vs. ROT-data? What is “valuable” data? Which quality criteria must valuable data meet and who defines them?
    • How can complex rules for automatic cleanup not only be implemented but also made maintainable?

    Vikas Bhambri (SVP Global Sales & Customer Experience, Kustomer); Calley Means (Co-Founder, Anomalie) Aug 28 2019 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    The digital age has transformed not only how companies interact with customers, but how customers choose to interact with businesses. While it is easier than ever for customers to get in touch with companies across an array of channels, it has become more difficult for companies to identify, understand, and speak directly to the specific needs of their customers. To succeed in this new era of customer service, companies must figure out how to personalize the way they connect with their customers. This webinar will show you why personalizing your support strategy is crucial for your business — and how to do it.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    - Why customers value personalization and why it is imperative for success
    - The challenges associated with delivering personalized customer service
    - The three tenets of achieving personalized customer service
    - How Kustomer has helped Anomalie deliver personalized service to their customers
  • Tech Docs & API Docs Under One Roof for Exceptional Content Experiences
    Tech Docs & API Docs Under One Roof for Exceptional Content Experiences
    Joe Gelb, President of Zoomin Software Aug 28 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Developers are moving their API content out of traditional help tools to create a better user experience. However, this means users now need to find the content they need in two separate places, creating a disruptive, inconsistent user experience that puts your hard work to waste.

    With the growth of Software as a Service (SaaS), writing API documentation is fast becoming a major part of the success of technical content managers, ensuring that your users find, and are able to use, content in the way they need it, at the time they need it, on the device they need it, and in the language of their choosing.

    Great companies make sure their overall content strategy is holistic, and that all this content, including APIs, is united under one roof.

    Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Communication Wrangler, and his special guest, Joe Gelb, President and Head of Business Development at Zoomin Software for this free, one-hour webinar. Joe will guide you through case studies of companies that successfully unified their technical and API documentation publishing, so you can do it too.

    Key takeaways:

    • Understand how API docs will impact on your success
    • Come to grips with commonly-used API doc formats
    • Learn how others successfully streamlined tech docs and API docs with amazing results
