Democratizes artificial intelligence services so any customer can easily build AI-powered CRM workflows.

This week at Dreamforce 2017, Salesforce is launching its latest and greatest innovations aimed at enabling businesses to do more with the data stored in its CRM platform.

Cisco introduces Spark Assistant and Spark Room 70, and lays out its AI roadmap.

Cisco this week is holding its annual reseller conference, Partner Summit, in Dallas. When Rowan Trollope, SVP & GM of IoT and Applications at Cisco, delivered his keynote today, the company unveiled its AI-powered voice assistant with the not so inventive name of “Cisco Spark Assistant.” There is, of course, a veritable cornucopia of voice assistants out there, as we can ask Siri, Google, Alexa, Cortana or other popular AIs a question and get a prompt answer back.
