The Emerging Role of Bots and Digital Assistants in the Workplace

The june program will be presented by steve tingiris, founder and chief dabbler at Dabble Lab, a private technology R&D company.

In this interactive presentation, attendees will get a first-hand look at the roles bots and digital assistants are beginning to play in the workplace. During the presentation, the audience will be able to actively participate by interacting with “Gabi”, Steve’s personal digital assistant. Gabi will be assisting with the presentation to answer questions, collect audience feedback, and raffle off prizes.
