Posted by Alyssa Verzino on Sep 5, 2018 2:20:20 PM

For the past 15 years, every content management system and enterprise knowledge base has been built around some version of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to make it easier for readers to find the valuable data hidden in your documentation. But that's a passive approach to making your data discoverable and relies on the hope that the answers your employees and customers need have already been documented and published.

Why Traditional Knowledge Bases Fail Support Teams

Posted by Alyssa Verzino on Aug 23, 2018 10:30:00 AM

The best customer support representatives don't just know the best answers to common questions, they know how to find any answer to any question -- and they depend on an internal knowledge base to do it.

Posted by Alyssa Verzino on Aug 16, 2018 4:53:10 PM

Why A.I. Agents Will Have No Choice But to Specialize

Posted by Alyssa Verzino on Apr 26, 2018 1:00:00 PM

 

We've argued before that generalized artificial intelligence is generally unprofitable (and maybe impossible), but there are some real-world examples of just how hard it can be for A.I. to get competent at even very narrow tasks. For example, you'd have no trouble asking your friend for a restaurant recommendation, but it's really difficult to teach A.I. to perform the same task well.
