What should you expect from “Contact Center AI”?

With the help of the aforementioned companies, Google wants to build an AI that will replace some of the work in call centres. The virtual agents will be the first ones to talk to the customer and address their issue. If they are not able to do something that the customer has mentioned, then the call will automatically move forward to a human.

Fei-Fei Li, Chief Scientist at Google, explained during the Cloud Next conference that their main aim is to empower contact centre’s human agents as well as the customers to rely on them. To ensure this is done, the company has developed a complete solution with its partners. The new AI includes the Dialog flow Enterprise Edition, as well as additional capabilities.
