Blog: Conversica Wins 2019 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Award

March 13, 2019 Stephanie Jorgl

We’re proud to add yet another AI award to our awards display case at the Conversica HQ!

This time, our Conversica Conversational AI Assistant for Business was one of two technologies selected to win an AI award in the Self-Aware category of the 2019 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards. The other winner was ignio – a cognitive automation platform. It’s flattering to keep company with other technologies pushing the boundaries of today’s artificial intelligence for business.

All in all, 20 other companies won awards in the 2019 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards, including other business-focused AI companies, products and people who are bringing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to life and applying it to solve real problems. Winners were chosen in all four of the categories of AI including Reactive Machines, Limited Memory, Theory of Mind, and Self-Awareness.

“As evidenced by all of the nominations, Artificial Intelligence is set to transform nearly every aspect of our lives and culture,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer for Business Intelligence Group. “As more and more companies build new tools, launch new services or deploy the AI of strategic vendors, it is important to recognize the truly unique solutions and how they impact the market. We are so proud that such an incredible group of companies won this year’s program. Congratulations to all of them.”

Other AI Technologies

Capgemini was chosen as the overall winner for its “Cash Collections Assistant,” a human-like voice collector that responds quickly to customers in 24 languages. The AI speech generation engine is trained and backed by natural language processing (NLP) to fit finance models and semantic topic understanding. The solution is implemented using cognitive NLP, live voice transcription, autonomous micro-services, and modern web frameworks. All of its elements operate in the cloud, enabling key enterprise features such as scalability, multi-tenancy, leading market security compliance, and continuous deployment.

“Capgemini’s Perform AI portfolio of solutions moves organizations beyond a proof of concept to pragmatic delivery at scale for real business impact,” said Adam Bujak, global head of Intelligent Automation Practice, Capgemini’s Business Services. “Capgemini’s Business Services team delivers Intelligent Process Automation to transform our clients’ operations by assisting, augmenting, and automating them – with a human team member at the center executing higher value tasks. This award recognizes the passion and determination of our experts to support our clients’ transformation journeys.”
