These and other new AI capabilities developed by Dr. Reddy’s team will enable Conversica’s customers to achieve new levels of insight and deploy more sophisticated conversations for their AI assistants across more than a dozen industry verticals, including technology, financial services, education, automotive, and hospitality.

In his follow-up presentation at the Global Big Data Conference, Dr. Reddy will provide an overview of Conversica’s approach to creating and continuously improving AI that engages each of an organization’s sales prospects in genuinely human conversations at scale. He will also share insights on why Conversica’s AI is successful in increasing sales, improving marketing and gathering critical intelligence, freeing humans to focus on higher-value activities and enabling companies to employ more people.

“Conversica’s rich dataset, conversational AI capabilities, market traction and business longevity make it the undisputed leader in the field of conversational AI for business,” said Dr. Reddy. “Today’s business leaders recognize that these technologies are poised to fundamentally change the way business is done.
