Marydee Ojala, KMWorld editor-in-chief, said: “It’s easy to become overwhelmed, even awestruck, at the amount of information about AI, particularly GenAI, thrown at us on a daily basis. The ability of AI technologies to process vast amounts of data, recognize patterns that humans can’t see, and generate new knowledge and insights, boggles the imagination. We at KMWorld are excited about the potential of AI to provide innovative KM solutions across the entire enterprise.”

Tiago Paiva, founder and chief executive officer at Talkdesk, said: “It’s an honor to be recognized by KMWorld for our cutting-edge AI innovation. I truly believe with GenAI we can finally close the curtain on bad customer experiences, so that’s where we’re focusing our efforts. From putting real-time information at agents’ fingertips to give hyper-personalized guidance, to helping customers get accurate answers by themselves, GenAI infused across the contact center is making a difference to customer experience among many global brands we support.”
