About this event

Creating demonstrators, prototypes and MVP’s is always a tricky challenge for new entrepreneurs and early stage startups. It can take significant time and money and is often a challenge to find suitably skilled developers who can bring your vision to life. The rise of Low Code and No Code technologies represents a dramatic shift in the way software is created. LowCode allows you to significantly accelerate the time to create a demo, prototype or MVP while radically reducing the costs. What’s more iteration cycle time and agility are also significantly improved. In this event we will explore how LowCode technology can transform the journey for entrepreneurs – getting you to market faster and requiring significantly less investment.

Adopting ROI driven digital experiences for the Healthcare industry, powered by Conversational AI

By Webinars
11AM to 12 PM EDT
12th  of May, 2021

Description

Chatbots and Virtual Assistants have the potential to transform the online healthcare experience whether for insured members or healthcare providers. They promise a frictionless and always available channel for people to complete tasks and have queries answered via automated services. This results in huge operational efficiencies and great customer experiences that increase Net Promoter Scores.

However, current chatbot solutions are frustrating because they do not understand users when they communicate naturally. This leads to low engagement levels, a poor return on your investment in this technology, and possibly damages your brand.

 This webinar is for you if you want to explore how Conversational AI can create a new generation of chatbots and virtual assistants that can deliver effective, personalised services to your members, transforming their digital experience and unlocking large returns on your investment.

The webinar will answer the following key questions:

  • How does Conversational AI deliver an outstanding customer experience through much smarter virtual assistants?
  • What are the key use cases for the Healthcare sector using Conversational AI?
  • How to maximise the value from an investment in a Conversational AI solution?
  • A framework and next steps for implementing Conversational AI.

Our thought leaders will provide you with insights and help you explore the approach to API-led strategy and how APIs are delivering optimum business results, agility and innovation for organisations.

Description

Currently, AI is advancing at a great pace and deep learning is one of the key contributors to that. It is good to understand the basics of deep learning as they are changing the world in which we live. With this trend, so many key organisations have tried to solve the day to day problems that we face using machine learning. In the past, Machine Learning was considered a lot harder than it should be to most developers because of the complicated process revolving building, training models and deploying them into production.

Amazon SageMaker removes all the barriers that typically slow down developers who want to use machine learning by removing the complexity that holds back developer success with Machine Learning through inbuilt modules that can be used together or independently to build, train and deploy your Machine Learning models.

AWS is a leading cloud vendor in the market and they have introduced Amazon SageMaker which is a fully-managed platform that enables developers and data scientists to quickly and easily build, train and deploy Machine Learning models at any scale.
