Presented by

About this talk

Artificial intelligence was Gartner’s top 2017 strategic technology trend, and the year isn’t over yet. But for too many companies, AI myths are persistent, use cases and strategies are still on the “shiny new thing” level, and expectations continue to hover in the spirit of Skynet/HAL, making it hard to determine whether it’s really right for your company. As AI technologies multiply, how do you sort fact from fiction? Should you stop daydreaming about replacing your entire staff with chatbots — or can you start augmenting agent abilities? Most importantly, while AI undoubtedly has shown real-live ROI in case study after case study, where is the particular value in chasing the AI buzz for your own company?
