Get ready for the future of AI in customer experience

Consider this your one-stop shop to learn about AI for CX.

Listen to the podcast

Hear that? It’s the deafening buzz of AI chatter—chatter about AI and chatter about another awkward transcript from ChatGPT. It’s tempting for businesses to deploy technology like generative AI in a trend-induced panic, and we know it is better to deploy strategically with the customer and human CX professionals top of mind. Still, it can be difficult to know which AI innovation will burn out and which will be with us for the long term, across industries and job functions.

Zendesk has been in the customer service game for a long time, so we know a few things about keeping it customer-centric amid ever-louder hype. For CX and IT professionals, that means focusing on delivering an excellent customer experience. Maybe that means learning more about Zendesk AI, a technology created with the intelligence of billions of customer interactions. Or maybe that just means learning more about AI for CX: why you should care, why your boss should care, and more.
