Voice and the rise of home devices and smart speakers are opening up new possibilities for researchers, enabling respondents to engage beyond simply typing a response and creating opportunities for ongoing dialogue. In an ESOMAR paper, What market research can learn from Alexa & Siri, a trio of authors – Young Ham (Kantar Australia), Jason Dodge (Kantar US) and Rebecca Southern (Kantar Australia) – extol the benefits of chatbots and AI. "These can help bridge the gap between quantitative and qualitative, offering more in-depth ways to better understand today's consumers," they write. "These give the chance to participate in a more interactive, flowing manner that is more conversational than a typed response." And for marketing and insights teams, they add, "AI can deliver smarter, more impactful consumer engagement... at scale".
So, you've decided that conversational marketing is right for your business, and you're planning on implementing an AI chatbot. What are your first steps? How do you get started? On this episode of Solving for CX, we jump right into a chat with Connor Cirillo, Conversational Marketing Manager at Hubspot. Connor discusses how artificial intelligence and AI chatbots can be set up to drive the success of an organization.
A new AI-(artificial intelligence) powered mobile and desktop chatbot app helps homeless people find the services and supports they need. The free, 24/7 support service puts real-time information about free meals, clothing banks, overnight shelters, drop-in facilities and more on the screens of desktop computers and mobile phones through a simple, scripted question-and-answer text box format. Called Chalmers, the chatbot also provides emergency crisis lines (other than 911) so people can get help with domestic abuse cases or mental health concerns. Unfortunately, the rapid adoption of Chalmers demonstrates an immediate and ever-increasing need for its service. In 2016, an estimated 133,000 people "experienced homelessness", according to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

When you really think about it, what we call "work" hasn't evolved much since the Industrial Revolution: While the technology has made most tasks easier, the name of the game is still mass production--codifying business processes using technology and scaling it across the entire enterprise. But artificial intelligence (AI) changes the game. Rather than fitting people into a repetitive process, AI offers the opportunity to liberate them from it altogether, freeing their time and creative energy for more strategic and meaningful work. For the first time since the Industrial Revolution, technology is being used to bring humanity back to work. This revolution actually began at home, thanks to the smart technology behind Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant, which have found a place in our daily lives.

After breaking all the records related to training computer vision models, NVIDIA now claims that it's AI platform is able to train a natural language neural network model based on one of the largest datasets in a record time. It also claims that the inference time is just 2 milliseconds which translates to an extremely fast response from the model participating in a conversation with a user. After computer vision, natural language processing is one of the top applications of AI. From Siri to Alexa to Cortana to Google Assistant, all conversational user experiences are powered by AI. The advancements in AI research is putting the power of language understanding and conversational interface into the hands of developers.
Who wouldn't like to get more done in less time? That's the idea behind Siri Shortcuts, a popular Apple app for iPhone and iPad, and built into the upcoming iOS 13 operating system, out in beta release now with a full upgrade due this fall soon after new iPhones hit in September. As the name suggests, Siri Shortcuts link the voice-controlled personal assistant you already know with time-saving shortcuts for tasks you want to perform. By simply asking for it – or tapping the screen if you're not in a place to freely use your voice – your iPhone or iPad can quickly heed your request. In other words, Siri Shortcuts – previously known as Workflow – fuses small actions to yield big results.
Today's world is built on information. Everyday data is generated or collected, with information on facts, figures and statistics continuing to grow. With so much data available, it becomes increasingly hard to know which data has value, and where exactly to look. The universal problem experienced by companies of all sizes is access to vast amounts of useful customer and market data masked (or engulfed) with valuable insights. There's simply too much information to process.
