Creating a great customer experience requires understanding and anticipating their needs. Whatever the channel, whatever the context, the starting point is defining what “good” looks like, then extending that seamlessly across digital and offline channels. To do so, machine learning and artificial intelligence become indispensable. This is just some of the art and science involved in customer experience (CX).

The Constellation Ambient Experience Summit (AXS) brings together top executives in CX to discuss how art and science come together. Topics addressed by this think-tank style workshop will cover issues of organizational change, redefining processes, and changing thinking. We’ll also discuss some of the big technology trends changing what’s possible in CX, including AI, spatial computing, and 5G.
