The Future Workforce Is Human to the Bot Power by The Growth Show
There’s the hype. Sure. But there’s also the hysteria. For most, bots are either the thing that’ll carry our companies into the future, or they’re a skip away from subjugating the entire human race. Today, we’re talking to Adelyn Zhou, CMO of TOPBOTS. She advises a wide range of companies on how they use AI and machine learning. She gives us her take on companies using these technologies successfully, how you can build a AI or machine learning team yourself (if you really need one), and what we can really expect from our robot overlords.

We Need to Talk About Kevin: My attempt to build a trustworthy Twitter bot
I wanted Kevin to be fundamentally different. Rather than spamming until a few people decided his content was worth sharing, Kevin would build a reputation as a trusted source that could be leveraged when distributing content. Building a bot that was capable of earning the trust of other users would require a degrees of autonomy and artificial intelligence not typically seen in Twitter bots. This would clearly be more work up-front, but the payoff would be less effort when attempting to get content shared by others.

How AI Bots, Voice Assistants Are Changing Shopper Behaviors | Street Fight
While email is still top dog in Narvar’s survey, with 80% of consumers selecting email as their preferred communication channel, 38% now say they want to hear from retailers on multiple channels, with post-purchase communications being among the most-likely to be appreciated via text or push notification.

“It’s important that retailers understand customers’ communications preferences so they can invest in the right channels, personalize outreach, and ultimately, create effortless yet emotional customer experiences,” says Harsh Jawharkar, vice president, head of marketing and partnerships at Narvar. “Each product release, sale, order confirmation, shipping update, return, customer question or issue resolution is a new opportunity for retailers to build relationships and nurture loyalty.”

Digging into the data by age group, Narvar found that millennials are more likely to prefer text and push notifications than baby boomers, with 43% of consumers between the ages of 18 and 29 preferring to receive order updates as text messages, versus 28% of consumers ages 60 and older.

Beyond the GUI: It's Time for a Conversational User Interface | WIRED
The GUI has served us well for a long time, but it's beginning to fray around the edges. We’re now grappling with an unintended side effect of ubiquitous computing: a surge in complexity that overwhelms the graphical-only interface -- especially when forced into a mobile-interface world. We now need to simply talk with our devices. That's why it’s finally time for the conversational user interface, or "CUI." This is the interface of the future as computing propagates beyond laptops, ...
