Workshop: Mining social media data for better CX driven outcomes
  • Tania Benade - Head of Analytics, BrandsEye
  • Matt Robertson - Senior Account Director UK & Africa, BrandsEye
more

To understand the customer journey and to attempt to close the ever-widening expectation gap, between promise and delivery, companies need to find more powerful ways to structure and analyse their data. This is especially true for social media data – a source of volunteered public opinion – which until now, has proved almost impossible to accurately mine, let alone to extract a genuine return on investment. By integrating artificial with human intelligence, organisations are now able to accurately structure data at scale for sentiment and topics, allowing them to make strategic customer experience interventions.

 

The session will look at social media data from various industries including banking and retail unpack the key drivers of public sentiment across the customer experience journey.

We will show how a carefully balanced HW and SW architecture is capable of solving these challenges, through the use of powerful Vector DSP processors and HW accelerators but also with novel dedicated programmable Processors and Co-processors tuned to some of the most challenging tasks of eMBB modems such as Link Adaptation, Channel Estimation and Beamforming in Massive MIMO systems.
