This week 8×8 Inc. held a financial and industry analyst event at the Nasdaq building in Times Square, and with a venue like that, one would expect something big. The company certainly delivered, going news-heavy today by loading up its product with several new artificial intelligence capabilities targeting customer experience improvement.
Conversational artificial intelligence provider Uniphore Technologies Inc. today announced it has acquired France-based Hexagone.
For those not familiar with Hexagone, the company brings together voice, video and text-based data to provide AI-based insights to help companies understand human behavior and sentiment. This adds to the emotion detection capabilities Uniphore gained with the 2021 acquisition of Emotion Research Labs. As part of the acquisition, Hexagone founder and Chief Executive Camille Srour and his team of data scientists have joined Uniphore.
