Conversica CEO Discusses Future Of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is all around us, whether it’s to recommend movies you might like or weed out unsavory videos. Smaller companies such as Conversica are joining the likes of Google and Facebook in pursuing AI.
Conversica sells digital assistants to businesses ranging from car dealerships to real estate companies. They work just as an entry-level sales or marketing person would; customers usually don’t know they’re interacting with software, or a bot, when responding to a sales pitch or seeking help.
Conversica CEO Alex Terry spoke recently with The Associated Press about the future of AI and its impact on jobs. Questions and responses have been edited for clarity and length.
