Artificial intelligence has a high IQ but no emotional intelligence, and that comes with a cost

“If online video platforms were built with Emotion AI, we could restore some of the energy and emotion that’s lost, and make meetings and conferences much more engaging as a result. If participants were willing to turn on their device’s camera, and opted in to using Emotion AI, the technology could decipher people’s emotional expressions and aggregate that data in real time.”

How Artificial Intelligence is changing the way we search and find online

  • “The customer searching online tries to make their query as accurate and intelligent as possible while the search engine simply responds by sharing everything it knows, but without actually answering the question. AI by contrast can spot what the customer intends and gives answers based on that intent, depending where an individual shopper is in their own personal buying journey.
  • By ensuring that their search strategy is underpinned by AI, retailers can then introduce more dynamic search enablers, such as visual and voice. But rather than simply adding commands, the customer is able to hold conversations with the digital assistant using natural language. Search then turns into discovery and it is this that leads to higher customer conversions, repeat visits and long-term loyalty.”
