8×8 Talks Speech Analytics for UC

Tracking the Evolution of Genesys’ Kate Sheila McGee-Smith June 17, 2019 From concept to platform to generally available intelligent virtual assistant At Enterprise Connect this week, 8×8 shared that it’s extending its speech analytics and quality management capabilities from the contact center to the business, via its X Series platform, following on last week’s news that it’s integrating its contact center with Google Cloud’s Contact Center AI solution. 8×8 is currently testing these capabilities, Middleton said. The new Meetings solution runs in the public cloud with a modern architecture built for WebRTC. 8×8 is integrating it into its cloud platform, and by the third quarter there will be no remnants of the old Meetings product, Middleton said. Complementing this speech analytics and quality management extension is a new common data format and X Series dashboard for tracking all voice, video, chat, and contact center interactions across a company — a customer’s call from the reception desk to the contact center agent and on to a finance or field sales subject matter expert in the business, Middleton described. What’s RPA, Why Should I Care? Diane Halliwell August 07, 2019 While robotic process automation is in its infancy, contact centers are finding its promise for streamlining workflows and reducing costs. These tightly integrated capabilities are essentially ready to go out of the box, requiring no external help for deployment, 8×8 said. Movement Mortgage is one customer already exploring possible sales and support use cases. “For example, we can learn what our President’s Club sales associates are doing to become top performers, and can use these positive, repeatable examples to train other associates to deliver higher levels of service,” said Will Simons, IT director at Movement Mortgage, in a prepared statement. Speech Analytics Start to FinishWith the ability to apply speech analytics and quality management outside the contact center, companies will be able to derive insights from every customer discussion, said Hunter Middleton, global VP of product management, in a No Jitter briefing. Inside sales is one use case, he said. Applying sentiment analysis to conversations can provide insight into why a call might have gone bad, for example, and using quality management on UC conversations could prove useful during training and in coaching scenarios, he added. Video, Next GenIn a separate pre-EC news announcement from last week, 8×8 said it’s creating a new Meetings experience using the technology acquired last fall from Jitsi. 8×8 has had its Meetings solution available for some time, “but perhaps a little too long,” Middleton said. Meetings is built on older technology, runs as a full stack in 8×8’s private cloud, and uses third-party vendors “that had been less than fully responsive as we wanted changes,” he said. With the Jitsi team, 8×8 decided on a “full rip and replace of our old stack from the UI all the way into the guts of the system.” How to Create a Positive Chatbot Experience Blair Pleasant June 18, 2019 Chatbots can lead to some awful interactions, but proper planning can fix that. In addition, 8×8 gave notice that it intends to offer a conference room system, combining its Meetings software with hardware from as-yet named vendors. Middleton didn’t provide additional details.Tags:News & Views8x8Jitsispeech analyticsquality managementEnterprise ConnectAI & AutomationAI & Speech TechnologiesMeetingsUnified Communications & CollaborationVideo Collaboration & A/V Articles You Might Like See All in AI & Automation » Via the integration with Google Cloud’s Contact Center AI (CCAI) — an eight-month-old offering that combines multiple artificial intelligence products with the intent of improving customer experience and boosting productivity of contact centers — 8×8 will be able to apply a combination of its own intelligence and Google CCAI to incoming voice calls. A company can allow a virtual, automated agent to answer simple, routine questions, thus increasing call center efficiency, he said. The virtual agent would hand off the call to a live agent only as needed. Live agents, in turn, could use an Agent Assist feature to serve up knowledge base documents in context of the conversation. Google AI-8×8 Integration8x8 has worked closely with unnamed customers to prove out two use cases being shown at the company’s booth at Enterprise Connect (number 506) Middleton said. Voice Communications in Business: Now and into the Future Sergey Poroshin June 18, 2019 In the future, bots will be mainstream and it will be considered a luxury to be able to speak with a human operator.

The most used and practically‐applied modelling software that currently exists at mine

first_imgTerry Wiles has been chosen by the global panel of judges to be inducted into the International Mining Technology Hall of Fame in the Mining Software category at the gala awards dinner in Denver on February 20th, during SME Conference week. Dr Terry Wiles received a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Toronto and went on to work for Inco in Sudbury contributing to some pioneering work on rockburst alleviation measures. He left INCO to develop Map3D, a fully integrated three‐dimensional layout (CAD), visualisation (GIS) and stability analysis package (BEM elasto‐plastic numerical modelling stress analysis). Map3d has been commercially available since 1990. Wiles has been solely is responsible for all technical developments and innovation in Map3d.Map3d has been the industry standard since 1990 and has been continuously enhanced to provide a powerful engineering design tool. Map3d numerical models have been used worldwide for underground excavations, rock slopes, open pits, tunnels, to account for the presence of fractures and surface infrastructure loads. The stress analysis models can simulate yielding (non‐linear) zones of different moduli (e.g. stiff dykes or soft ore zones) and loads due to steady state thermal/fluid flow. Excavations can be intersected by multiple discrete faults (nonplanar and gouge filled) that slip and open. Map3D can simulate ground support elements such as arches, steel sets, props, thick liners, chalks, backfill etc.Since its introduction, the software developed by Wiles has been the most widely used stress analysis software at mines sites worldwide. It is currently used by many hundreds of mining, civil and geotechnical companies, consultants, research centres and universities around the world.Competence in the use of Map3d is often a prerequisite for employment in rock engineering in most deep and high stress mines and consulting firms. A further indication of the impact of the software is that there has been a direct industry driven need for continuous training at mine sites worldwide. This has resulted in more than 100 Map3D courses disseminated by Terry Wiles in Australia, Canada, Chile, Korea, South Africa and Sweden. These courses have been attended by close to 1,000 practicing rock engineering specialists.The accessibility of Map3d has made it the reference tool in both industry and academia. This is reflected in the International Conference forums in Rock Engineering and Deep and High Stress where a large number of publications and presentations refer directly to results obtained using Map3d.Wiles received the 2011 Rock Mechanics Award of the Rock Engineering Society of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM). As indicated at the citation at the time “….developed what is arguably some of the most utilised and practically‐applied modelling software that currently exists at mine sites”.last_img read more

TDs to debate legislation giving maternity leave rights to TDs

first_imgTHE DÁIL will today consider an opposition plan to give maternity leave to female TDs for the first time.The legislation, tabled by Fianna Fáil’s Seán Ó Fearghaíl, would give female TDs equal rights to maternity leave as other female employees in Ireland.Currently, female TDs do not enjoy the same protection as other workers – with no guaranteed time away from work while they have their children.The lack of any formal maternity leave means female TDs often find themselves working until relatively late in their pregnancies, and returning to work not long after their child has been born – meaning they get significantly less than the 26 weeks offered to private workers.Ó Fearghaíl’s legislation would allow a female TD for up to 18 weeks, which can be taken consecutively or in separate parts if their child is unwell – and also take an extra eight weeks of unpaid leave, which members cannot currently be forced to take.While TDs would still receive full pay for the duration of their absence, they would not be entitled to claim any Oireachtas expenses for the duration of their absence.The legislation does not create any provision for paternity leave, though the government is due to reform Irish labour law to reform maternity leave across all industries in line with European directives allowing parental leave to be interchanged between new parents.Debate on the Bill will begin at 10:30am this morning; a vote on it, if one is called, will be deferred until Tuesday.last_img read more

New skyscraper in London is melting cars starting fires

first_imgIn the city of London a new 37 storey building is nearing completion located at 20 Fenchurch Street. It had to meet all building and safety regulations before construction could start, but the unusual building is now facing a major dilemma due to its concave design.The building uses curved windows and has been nicknamed the Walkie Talkie Tower due to its shape. The side effect of this concave design is that when the sun hits the curved glass windows it is being focused just like a magnifying glass achieves. The problem is, the concentrated sunlight is falling on a nearby street full of stores and parked cars. The temperature in that area can soar to above 92 degrees Celsius and has resulted in paintwork blistering, tiles cracking, and even a small fire starting as the carpet burned in one of the store entrances.The worst damage so far has been to a car, though. A Jaguar was parked in the area of concentrated sunlight for a couple of hours. When owner Martin Lindsay returned people were taking pictures of his car. As the video below shows, parts of the bodywork had melted due to how intense the heat was.Land Securities and Canary Wharf, the two companies involved in the building’s construction and management, are being forced to take drastic action. For now, temporary scaffolding will be erected to stop the sun being reflected off the building and causing the damage. When that is up they need to figure out a more permanent solution, which could actually result in a very expensive refit of the glass for something much less reflective.[Image credit: herefordcat]last_img read more

Senator declares Mayo home is now 200m closer to Leinster House so

first_img 73 Comments Image: Sam Boal/Photocall Ireland Sunday 5 Mar 2017, 7:00 AM By Darragh McDonagh 39,724 Views Share376 Tweet Email2 Image: Sam Boal/Photocall Ireland Short URL http://jrnl.ie/3265221 Mar 5th 2017, 7:00 AM Senator declares Mayo home is now 200m closer to Leinster House so will receive fewer expenses Michelle Mulherin told relevant authorities that route changes knocked her travel distance just below the 240km threshold for greater allowances. A FINE GAEL senator has had her travel expenses cut after changes to the route between Dublin and Mayo shortened her commute to Leinster House by 200 metres.The fractional change in the distance between the national parliament and the home of Ballina-based politician Michelle Mulherin has moved her to a lower band for the purpose of expenses.TDs and senators are entitled to claim a unvouched Travel and Accommodation Allowance (TAA) based on the distance they have to travel between their place of residence and their Kildare Street workplace.The tax-free allowance is paid to senators at 13 different rates depending on the length of their commute; ranging from €5,250 per annum for those living within 25km of Leinster House to €29,565 for those living more than 360km away.Mulherin signed a declaration certifying that her commute was 240km in each of the years between 2011 and 2016, during which time she was a TD. This placed her in Band 8 for the purpose of the TAA.Band 8 applies to senators living between 240km and 270km from Leinster House and provides for travel and accommodation expenses to be paid at a rate of €26,865 per annum.However, Mulherin changed the distance on the declaration form that she signed last December to 239.8km. This shortened the distance by just 200 metres but resulted in her changing from Band 8 to Band 7 for the purpose of the TAA.Band 7 applies to senators living between 210km and 240km from Leinster House, who are paid €26,184 per annum to cover travel and accommodation expenses – €681 less than Band 8.Asked about the change in distance between her home and Leinster House, Mulherin explained:Band 7 pertains to a distance of 210km or more but less than 240km. I am in a position to declare Band 7 owing to route changes.Politicians claiming expenses under the scheme are required to calculate the distance using the shortest practicable route. Both AA Route Planner and Google Maps calculate the distance between Mulherin’s home and Leinster House as 238km.Records published by the Houses of the Oireachtas show that the Fine Gael Senator did not receive any payments under the TAA scheme between her appointment to the Seanad in May and last December.She signed and submitted her declaration on 9 December and received expenses of €16,644.69 later that month, which included a backdated payment under the TAA scheme.TDs and senators are entitled to claim the allowance without providing receipts to show how the money was spent. Instead, they are required to sign a form at the end of the year certifying that all of the money received was used solely for its intended purpose.Claimants are also required to ‘clock-in’ on 120 days a year in order to receive the full amount of the allowance.The expenses regime is currently the subject of a legal challenge in the High Court, which argues that Oireachtas members are being treated preferentially to ordinary citizens in contravention of the Constitution and EU Law.Michelle Mulherin: ‘We need to look at murder sentencing.

Kampl confident in RB Leipzigs quality

first_imgRB Leipzig midfielder Kevin Kampl is confident that, with their prolific forwards, they will continue to overcome a difficult start to the seasonRalf Rangnick’s side suffered a 4-1 opening day defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga before sustaining another loss to Salzburg in the Europa League.But Leipzig now lies second in the league table after winning their last four games in all competitions with Timo Werner, Yussuf Poulsen and Jean-Kevin Augustin having struck 11 times between them.Summer signing Matheus Cunha, who arrived from Swiss side Sion, has added four goals for Leipzig.“We definitely have a great attack,” Kampl told SportBild. “Almost all of our strikers have scored. This versatility makes us dangerous.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.He added: “We have a brutal quality in the team. However, we conceded too many goals at the start of the season. Especially defensively, we’ve improved enormously.“Due to the many goals we conceded at the start, we lost our timing when we were pressing. The players didn’t always know when it was worth pressing an opponent. It caused uncertainty.”Despite the upturn in form though, Kampl is taking nothing for granted ahead of Saturday’s visit to FC Augsburg.“There’s always room for improvement, but in recent games, we’ve reached the maximum in terms of overall performance,” said the 28-year-old.“We would readily accept it if we can hold our current second place. But the season is only seven games old, so you can’t read too much into it. I can only warn against complacency. Things can quickly turn against you.”last_img read more

first_imgChris Smalling believes Manchester United’s revival could be linked to the rediscovery of the standards set by legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.United came from behind to record a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth making it the third time in four matches they have recovered from a losing position.Referring to those once-famous characteristics, Smalling, 28, disclosed via Belfast: “We’re showing that attitude, never giving in and you can see that coming out.“No matter how bad that first half was, that second half we all believed we can go and win. It’s a great feeling and it’s bringing us closer together.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“As games are getting tougher and tougher they’re closer than ever, and it’s often coming down to fine margins, who can give that added burst in the last five minutes. We’re going to win a lot of points that way.“We know we’re going into a very tough week now but we can come out with some good results and it can be seen as a good month, considering (October) was probably one of our toughest months.“We have to stick together. This is a club that is talked about more than any other and we as players need to stick together and ride out the tough times and stay together in the good and try to keep them flowing as much as we can.“We knew that three points was a must because we have to move up that table.”last_img read more

Walk of pride

first_imgBhaskar Khulbe, additional chief secretary, is to receive the award on behalf of the Government of West Bengal on 31st January, at the Rashtriya Rangshala Camp in Delhi Cantonment.The repertoire of Purulia Chhau embodies the rich cultural heritage of West Bengal. A mask dance performed in certain areas of the State, it has a distinctive character of its own.  Although Chhau is part of the folk cultures of Bihar and Orissa as well, Purulia Chhau has received international acclaim in recent years for its vigour and perfection. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The main theme of Purulia Chhau is battle since the dance traces its origin to a warrior tribe – Bhumij or Munda. The physical agility of performers is striking in vigorous somersaults, circular movements and forceful leaps. Drawing episodes from Ramayana, Mahabharata and Puranas, Chhau has evolved as a ritual to propitiate Sun, Shiva and Shakti and dominantly depicts Vira and Raudra rasa.The West Bengal tableau had portrayed Lord Kartikeya in his dazzling divine regalia. The accompanying artistes had enacted their much-acclaimed ‘Mahishasura Mardini’ – symbolising the triumph of good over evil. The scintillating live performance at the tableau was staged by a 10-member Chhau Group from Shiv Shakti Chhow Dance Academy, Purulia.Distinctive aspects of Purulia Chhau through its bright and colorful masks and accessories and folk instruments that create the aura and ambience of an animated and invigorating dance form, kept alive by the rural communities, were also encapsulated in the tableau. The Chhau dance contingent, led by Jodharam Kumar, had received the First Prize for their performance at the Cultural Programme organised by the Ministry of Defence.last_img read more

Decoding USRussian body language in Mexico

first_imgAP White House CorrespondentLOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) – It’s hard to tell if President Barack Obama got a sense of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s soul. In front of reporters, they hardly looked at each other.In their first meeting since 2009, Obama and Putin shared little eye contact and did not appear to express much personal warmth following a two-hour meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit. Putin made brief remarks and then looked down at the table as Obama spoke to reporters, aided by a translator. Check your body, save your life Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Mexico’s Foreign Relations Ministry, which runs the G20 site, declined comment on the matter.A blog entry signed by the group condemned what it said is the enormous expense of holding such summits.“We need changes in economic policy that benefit the majority in fields such as education, health and farm aid,” the blog text reads.____Associated Press writer Jack Chang contributed to this article.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

They said the meeting wouldn’t have lasted as long as it did if the two leaders didn’t get along.Mike McFaul, the U.S. ambassador to Russia, said the chemistry between Obama and Putin was “very businesslike” and “cordial.” McFaul added that there was nothing extraordinary about the exchange. “That’s just the way he looks, that’s just the way he acts,” McFaul said of Putin.Said Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser: “This isn’t the first body language-gate we’ve had with the Russians.” Rhodes noted that the White House had faced similar questions before but said these were “businesslike conversations” between the two leaders and cautioned against trying to decode body language.Later, the two leaders were all smiles after Obama sat down for the start of the summit.
