Digital Workspaces: The New Way to Work

No matter the industry or line of business, employees must interact with internal systems, third party tools, and (most importantly) each other. In the past, these various methods of interactions have been slowed and disjointed. With AI and Cloud technologies, IBM and Zoom are changing the way people work by connecting them with whomever and whatever they need in real time, allowing them to get more done. With machine learning capabilities embedded into our collaboration tools, we are cutting through the noise using natural language understanding and automating repeatable tasks that would previously cost valuable time, allowing teams to focus on their highest business priorities.

Speakers: Ann-Marie Darrough, Director of Offering Management, IBM Watson Work & David Berman, President, Zoom Video Communications
