Am I speaking to a robot?

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Last week’s Economist ran an Outsourcing and Offshoring Special Report which contained an article titledĀ Rise of the Software Machines. Mentioned alongside Blue Prism was IPSoft which caught my eye because complementary to Blue Prism’s back office focus, they are creating front office robots, that actually speak to customers. And more than that, they use autonomics to learn how to communicate in context. The website is worth a read, especially if you are a mathematics geek.
