Artificial Intelligence Solutions power machines to copy intelligent human behavior and are in everything--from your smartphone to (maybe) that voice on the other end of the phone. See below for the latest AI news, trends, and solutions.

Knowledge management and the impact of COVID-19

As the U.S. and countries around the world begin to ease—or at least think about easing—restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, executives at leading knowledge management software and services organizations are reflecting on the lasting impact we can expect. Greater use of cloud services, accelerated digital transformation, a need for the latest and greatest technology, and a generally stronger appreciation for knowledge management are among the key changes being seen.

Creating an intelligent automation toolkit

When deployed separately, robotic process automation and digital process automation technologies add immense business value, but when they are strategically combined, an entirely new level of business optimization is possible

The 'Interaction of Things' is coming of age

IoT devices are starting to impact the personal lives of consumers, but the part of the economy likely to be most affected in the 2020s will be the industrial sector

Virtual agents can take enterprise service management to new levels

The time is right to focus on the role of virtual agents in improving customers' service experiences

Harnessing the power of text analysis

Understanding natural language processing, common obstacles faced, and methodologies to overcome them

David Weinberger's new book, Everyday Chaos, is honored with Axiom Award

When you try to develop a machine learning application that affects people, you quickly learn that fairness is far more complex than we usually think, and also that fairness almost always requires us to make difficult trade-offs

Up-leveling customer communications infrastructure with RPA

With RPA, AI-powered robots observe humans using software and then learn to use the software themselves

Vibrant network ecosystems are turning supply chains into competitive weapons

The old paradigm for supply chain networks has run its course, and the future is in multi-enterprise, or multi-party business networks

Knowledge management predictions for 2020

As we approach a new year—and a new decade—executives from multiple industry sectors offer predictions on the intertwined areas of CX, information governance and compliance, and automation and AI

Building smarter robots: A new era combines content intelligence and RPA

For RPA to progress beyond automating simple repetitive tasks with fixed rules, enterprises will need to turn their RPA robots into "smarter" robots that can process a wide variety of unstructured content

Building Smarter Robots: New Era Combines Content Intelligence and RPA

Robotic process automation (RPA) has gained significant momentum this year. But for RPA to progress beyond automating simple repetitive tasks with fixed rules, enterprises will need to turn their RPA robots into "smarter" robots that can process a wide variety of unstructured content, effectively replacing employees from the manual work of processing information trapped within documents.

Knowledge and AI Augmentation: The Essential Complement to Agent Training in the Modern Contact Center

The answer lies in a modern knowledge management (KM) system, infused with AI, that can guide agents (and customers in the case of self-service) to the answer needle in a haystack of content and through customer conversations. Modern AI-infused KM also addresses all the other issues mentioned earlier: explosion of and constant changes to information, increasing query complexity, next-gen attention span, "all-gen" forgetting curve, "guided" lifestyle, and legacy customer service and knowledge tools.

Three advances in AI and ML: From Awareness to Action and Decision

The possibilities of AI and ML are numerous—we are already witnessing some of its disruptive potential through personalized healthcare, weather predictions, inventory management, smart city design and more. There is one constant that will accelerate these advancements in AI further—the desire to create machines that are domain fungible with the ability to self-learn.

Intelligent Capture Drives AI ROI

By leveraging data more effectively, organizations can better deploy AI applications to compete in future markets.
