Diving Blindly into a New Era of AI & Voice-Driven Service Design (with Jon Billett & Cody Casey of Guru)
It all started as a fun experiment at Guru's inaugural company hack-a-thon. But before the dust could even settle, that experiment quickly (and surprisingly) got the green-light into production after becoming viral within the company and capturing the hearts of the Leadership team. A unique hybrid feature of voice recognition, AI and on-screen UI left the Product team with the challenge of creating a "best-in-class" solution for a "class" that didn't really yet exist in the marketplace. Cody and Jon will discuss how they had to act quickly and take advantage of the limited available resources to create something that they could comfortably put in front of their enterprise customers.
