I've been hoping one in this composition for a long time because our history. If you go back far enough is rooted in alexa. Google assistant and the voices and spirits. And we've been working in this all contact center environment and customer services for a while and then we see. Google released this kind of suite of tools. The seems to have in some parts from history with with google assistant and all this kind of stuff in very similar technologies. and we've been been exploring it for awhile and excited to see where it goes and what you're up to so thank you much for joining us citing citing. Yeah there's a lot of history there with assistant and yeah we can talk about. It's it's an interesting story but it. What's what's interesting is that it's really exhilarating in the last two years. It's been pretty pretty impressive. What we've been able to deliver and really happy to release a led technology now until it's all coming together and we're seeing great results so happy to cheryl that nice. What's what's what's who is it. That says underwent a plan comes together is bigger is gonna plan comes together nicely. Well well on any join those. So you the head of compositional nine contact center at google cloud jonah. Tell the people tune in a little bit about what the rule is what you do on google cloud and how that relates to i own the product the product suite basically. So whatever touches conversational. I for google cloud which is now set of a set of product so some underlying technologies like the speech to text. Api or text to speech api. Some of the amelia technologies that we have but on top of that really. What's interesting. is the various products. No dalek show. For cell surrey's channel bots voice and chat the agent assists to help human agent do their job better and getting sites. And what's going on in real time as they were talking to customers and the latest one is insights which is coming verviers soon which is about understanding all your contact center and everything that's happening they are so it's kind of a product suite under the umbrella. Ci and yes. I own that. I have a team of product. Managers that Do a job at delivering on those products from helping drive a change in the market with this nice so i was just trying to put the lincoln in lincoln. So you mentioned the Some of it has a history with google assistant. Let's unpack that a little bit. So where i come from. And what relationship. If any have with google assistant technologies it started about four years ago. I think some somewhere around that where we did assistant actually did an acquisition of a company. Api and the. I was A tool to help people build better. Google assistant interactions turned out. That in google cod. We were really interested with this technology and the cloud. Google customers actually started using piano the i to build bots for arna a prize and it became dialogue so and so we started planning a little bit working toward more entreprise use cases with alec flow as as assistant was working on their own on their own path and were sharing a lot of the nfl. You underlying the technology but as time passed we so much more traction in the enterprise and had to separate ourselves a little bit in terms of how you manage the the system itself and elliot's fairly common but the system you know the the designer the interaction the web hoax infrastructure the security level privacy that we could provide with allah flu can a diverse and about i would say about two years ago. We started embarking on a new journey toward larger on it so we had their early over. I think we have about one point. Five million developers now in dallas so signed up but we saw that big move award. Large large companies like verizon and likes that wanted to have a lot more flexibility and being able to handle more complex. Use cases with their varietal agents Migrated toward what we just launch in. General is but at the same time we expanded toward agent assists and insights we added to the portfolio so the history starts at a piano. The i four years ago. But i think they're somewhat of a split about two years ago to address the large enterprise cases those use cases and so for those who you mentioned. It's this this dialogue floor the cx was created. There is agent assist olympics and insights. Those are the those are the the full men compo- insects out yet but inside his common. That's right isn't it. Yeah so. It's a early preview right now. It's coming on in in In preview the states kind of bit is a new term. Like we don't have alpha beta anymore. We have previews and j preview previews coming out. I think in the next month and now it takes care is incites is no analysis product per se. It is it is inside. So floyd assists on sites had the three main main products. And i'm accents. Okay then so. Donald flows has been used a lot for goodness actions as well as chump dot says wella's contact center etc for those up in the day a more than likely have experienced dialogue floor in some shape or form. So what is it. The drove the need for dialogue floor. Cx whetted cx come from. Sussex is more graphical. It's it's slightly different to. Es what's the history. Yeah that's actually very important. So essentially asks is basically dial for the daleks with everybody knows that the prior version she will that was meant to build simpler interactions. So one or two turns. Maybe three turns if you if you really need to go a little deeper but some people have called it like slot failing type of bots little bit of that no s something getting tencent and entities and do something where the work or cloud function fairly simple. But when you talk about larger apprise they need to handle much more complex use cases longer. You know five. Ten twelve fifteen turns in conversation or you know things that lasts for two or three minutes on the voice side and being able to handle that without floor essential was very difficult. Because linking intense between them. The nfc between intense was a little difficult to do and the visual builder was a big improvement where you can see a complete flow manage the transition in dragon drop. Ui all without code was really important to a lot of customers but it really doesn't stop there Dallas came from a need for better predictability in spending for example so the pricing model is different. Secession based rather than a turn or fifteen second incriminate. It has a skill ability Capabilities that are much higher so delicacy. Excellent handled forty thousand intent in a single implementation issue. Compare that doug. Flu central two thousand ten. You can have mega agent on it. Which allows you to go to twenty but cx with forty thousand and ten and we have customers that are in the many many thousands fifteen seventeen thousand intents so it does happen that you need this kind of skill. It also has a lot more features toward ivr's when you used alpha essentials. It's unlikely you're going to replace your vr and hence your vr with. It's more about knowing if you think about assistant. Its interaction with smart device.

"How conservative activists big business and wealthy donors. Reshaped. The American states and the nation by Alexander Hertel Fernandez this chapter one titled the most dangerously effective organization. Wanna buy a law tease? The normally staid trade publication Bloomberg business week in two thousand eleven article that piece explain how a relatively unknown group the American legislative exchange council. Alec turn one Bill idea from business into many many many laws in exchange for hefty membership dues quote corporations drop bills off at one end concluded the journalists, and they come out the other stamped with the imprimatur of a nonprofit nonpartisan group of state legislators in the journalists assessment that process made Alex Alec a corporate Bill laundry for the state's investigative journalists in the nation reaches similar conclusion writing that Alex project was best summarized as the complete. Business domination of American public life. The good government reform outfit common. Cause agreed so up their take on Alec has a group in which quote, dozens of corporations are investing millions of dollars a year to write business friendly legislation that has been made into law in statehouses coast to coast with no regard for the public interest. And in the book on Corp in a book on corporate lobbying across the states, labor scholar. Gordon laugher is concluded that quote above all the corporate agenda to shape state policy is coordinated through the American legislative exchange council. These assessments of Alec paint a clear picture of a business front. That's certainly squares. Well, with some examples of the group's activities like Enron's efforts deregulation of state electrical markets throughout the nineteen ninety s the denunciations of Alec has a corporate Bill mill fit more uneasily with Alex other lobbying priorities, for instance, common causes pointed out that in addition to lobbying for corporate tax bakes. Breaks and cuts deregulation. Alec has been at the forefront of efforts to introduce strict voter ID laws across the states. If it's ID it's Alec declared, one of common causes directors and earlier Alec pushes prevented statesman, expanding legal rights, Dale GT, Americans and women what where is the narrow corporate interest in these social issues, another source of confusion comes from accounts of Alec that emphasizes connections to Charles David coke. The two mega wealthy libertarian. Industrialists? Who are often known colloquially as the coke brothers, the center for media and democracy. A left wing group of muckrakers closely tracking Alec the state policy network SPN and Americans for prosperity AFP have been quick to point out. That Alec has long received support from the coke brothers main company. Coke industries. No, one knows how much the cokes have given Alec in total, but the likely amount exceeds one million dollars estimated lease Lisa graves. The centers head that infusion of cash graves argues has resulted in hundreds of Alex model bills and resolutions bearing traces of cokes DNA ideas that were once at the fringes that have been carved into mainstream policy through the wealth and will of Charles and David coke. It is certainly true as we will see that Alec has been supported by the Coke's main corporate arm, but to call Alec part of the vast coca puss of organizations created and managed by the two brothers mischaracterizes both Alec and the coke network. Alec is not new nor has it ever been excuse me. Alec is not now, nor has it ever been part of the Coke's main network a political organizations as best we can tell funding for Alec flows. Not from the coke brothers seminars of wealthy donors that finance. They're more ideological spending. But. But rather through their business, and unlike the other organizations that the cokes direct Alec is not helmed by close coke industry operatives. So of Alec is not part of the Coke's main set of political organizations. What exactly is the relationship between the group and the coke brothers the misunderstanding of Alex relationship with business movement? Conservatives in wealthy donors is understandable, as we'll see in this chapter because over decades, the group has included include all these actors, it is neither simply a front for corporate lobbying, nor another piece of the coke network. Instead of his best seen as a coalition that is tempted to reconcile the very preferences of big business firebrand, conservative activists and wealthy donors. That task is not always been easy. Alec has had various points leaned. Too far forward favoring one set of constituents over the others sometimes resulted in backlash. Importantly alligators would need new institutional designs demand conflicts both within and between their constituent parts looking closely at these innovations sheds light on questions of coalition building in the fragmented American political system in particular helps us to understand when businesses are capable of sustained collective political organization. The United States a surprising outcome for many observers of American politics in hindsight. It may seem obvious that an organization brought together political conservatives with private sector companies the lobby state governments would be used useful creation for corporate executives and right wing activists seeking policy change across the country. Certainly the part parties as organized interests theory, I allied to the last chapter would end -ticipant, the businesses seeking policy change would do well to develop close alliances with such activists politicians yet on the other hand, a long line of scholars argued the groups representing businesses in politics in the United States would be to hamstrung by internal conflicts to adopt anything other than flat out opposition to government. According to those accounts.
