When it comes to deploying leading edge technology, the future of work will not be all that different from the world of gamers, where immersive experiences become an appealing proxy for in-person experiences, and for some, the preferred option. Many of these forms are already finding their way into the workplace; virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and even the metaverse. While these may be years away from being mainstream, immersive forms of interaction will be FOW-friendly, especially for businesses trying to improve employee engagement with hybrid work. Before going too far down this path, IT needs a clear sense of the use cases, as well as the technologies required to support these new modes. Only when those pieces are in place can virtual options become reality, and that’s where our panelists will bring their expertise to bear.

Just as we were getting comfortable with first generation AI applications like chatbots, translation and transcription, along came ChatGPT in 2023. This took AI to a new level, and we’re still grappling with how it fits for future of work. Nothing stands still with AI, though, and the latest wave in the revolution is large language models (LLM). With each new breakthrough, AI becomes more strategic than tactical, and IT leaders need to think in terms of the organization-wide impact rather than point applications like speech-to-text. Just as Generative AI became part of the FOW lexicon last year, LLM is this year’s acronym, and you might be surprised at how it can drive new business value. Last year’s ChatGPT session was standing-room-only, and if LLM isn’t on your FOW roadmap yet, you won’t want to miss this one.

This session will examine AI for CX use cases, ROI, adoption rates, concerns, pitfalls, and plans—based on brand new research from Metrigy. We'll explain AI options available for common problems and opportunities in a way that is easy to understand. We'll also show how AI is affecting revenue, costs, agent efficiency, and customer satisfaction from companies that already use the technology.

Workplace norms have become very fluid, not just with the rise of hybrid work, but the challenges of managing workloads that never seem to ease up. AI-based technologies are creating ever-expanding volumes of data that need to be managed, and without the right tools, workers can be easily overwhelmed. Knowledge management capabilities are essential for finding the right data for the task at hand, and applying it to improve performance. Without this, employee engagement will suffer, and some will even view AI as being on track to take their jobs. While AI is driving much of this new data creation, it can also be deployed for knowledge management to help workers navigate all this data. This will give workers a sense of agency, where human input still has value, and AI is viewed more as job enhancement than job replacement. The future of work will very much be technology-driven, but there will be no workers if everything is automated, and this session examines the nuanced approach that IT leaders must take with AI that does not erode employee engagement.

Generative AI models have achieved remarkable advancements in generating human-like text, images, and even code. However, these models often suffer from a phenomenon known as “knowledge sprawl,” wherein the model’s knowledge expands beyond its training data, resulting in the generation of inaccurate or misleading information. Controlling this sprawl is crucial to ensure the reliability and ethical usage of generative AI systems. This session will delve into the challenges associated with knowledge sprawl in generative AI and explore effective strategies for controlling and mitigating its impact, including approaches that researchers and developers have employed to address this issue.

An AI Optimist possesses an authentic desire to capture the benefits of AI and deploy the technology for customer experience enhancements across all industries. They are not naive; they recognize implementation as a journey, not an immediate transformation, especially within the contact center, where Conversational AI has opened the door for Generative AI (which goes beyond basic guided tours of conversational AI). By leveraging Large Language Models (LLMs), GenAI delivers more life-like conversations with customers, where consumer intent is analyzed for personalized interactions. This session will examine what it means to be an AI Optimist and why companies must avoid carelessly deploying generative AI, as well as jey areas where to deploy GenAI, the benefits of enacting hyper-automation into customer care technology, and how optimists should address the challenges and risks of AI.

Artificial Intelligence isn’t just the dominant trend in tech, but also the most transformative force for future of work. Every aspect of work will be transformed by AI – how we work, where we work, why we work, etc. – but no operation inside a business is being impacted more right now than the contact center. The reason is simple – AI can address many of the shortcomings of legacy-based contact centers that are having ripple effects across the entire business. Today’s digital customers have adopted new technology faster than contact centers, and as their expectations keep rising, the business risk keeps rising as well. When agents don’t have the right tools, customer service suffers, along with their performance and morale. Business leaders cannot afford to wait for a years-long modernization program, and the contact center is a prime use case when considering the role of AI in your future of work plans. Great success stories are in the market right now, and we’ll be sharing some of them during this session.

Black Land Ownership
There's a hope that, via artificial intelligence and the elimination of human error, processes and activities will become more efficient, beneficial, and advantageous for humanity. But is this the case?  Will the tide of AI raise all boats? How does human bias influence the systems and structures of AI models, such as large language models, ethics, selective data, and models emerging from non-diverse institutions?  This session will present an engaging, interactive discussion about bias in the world of generative AI from a few perspectives, including:
  • The back end (coders, developers, owners, technologists, industry perspectives),
  • How technology generates vastly disparate consequences for different communities, and
  • Models of best practices.
How do different communities feel about facial recognition, surveillance, and predictive modeling?  What historical events or circumstances that should cause people to be cautious or concerned?  Where does rational concern turn into paranoia and conspiracy theory?  What does the future look like for AI?
