SXSW 2017

Panic, Paranoia and the Reality of Bots

The hype around chat bots has been building nonstop. Businesses are building these one-on-one virtual assistants at a break neck pace. The next thing you know, many jobs done by humans will become obsolete. Right? Not really. Remember when people thought call centers were dead when the “World Wide Web” became a thing? Bots are in the same position. Bots have the potential to create more value than ever for businesses, becoming an important and complementary way to communicate with customers and employees. x.ai and gyro will discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of bots in the present day, as well as what future implications bots will ultimately have on business, the workplace, and humanity.
