The Current State of AI in Service and Support

Presented by

Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet

About this talk

The current state of AI in service and support is underwhelming. Promises of bot-powered agentless support, problems that automatically correct themselves, and preemptive problem resolution—the holy grail of service and support—have gone largely unfulfilled. But there are bright spots on the landscape. I have seen more than 100 demonstrations of AI tools in the past few years. Only recently have these demos convinced me that we are at an inflection point with AI. There are now credible demonstrations of AI that not only exceed the capability of human experts, but are getting smarter over time. They exhibit true machine learning. In this webcast, Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet, will provide a recap of where we are, and what's still on the horizon.
