This talk focusses on how AI and Machine Learning techniques can be leveraged to design solutions for technology support. Smarter tech support operations can be created by incorporating analytics and cognitive technologies into solutions that can learn what is important, contextually, and take the right actions on behalf of the user—sometimes even before the user realizes an issue has occurred. In specific in the talk I will focus on using ML, NLP and Conversational AI as 3 pillars of technology that will disrupt the way support is provided in the future.
