Scaling Customer Chat across Platforms with 1-800-Flowers.com

The rise in social media, messaging, and conversational commerce apps over the past few years has substantially increased the breadth of potential touchpoints and communication channels for customers to interact with brands. While this has opened a number of new mediums for content and marketing, it has made it difficult for brands to maintain consistent communication across this disparate ecosystem. We’ll cover how 1-800-Flowers.com leveraged Twilio’s Studio, Autopilot, and Flex products to create a scaleable solution to customer chat across platforms. Note: This session will air a second time for our Asia, Pacific and Japan audience on October 2 at 11:30am SGT.

Build a Chatbot for your React App using Autopilot

Natural Language Processing (NLP) has transformed how we build conversational interfaces. More businesses are building chatbots that interact with their users in real time. In this workshop, using Autopilot, we will create a chatbot for a React application. We will walk through the steps of setting up Autopilot using the CLI and connect it to our React app using Programmable Chat. While this workshop will focus on React, you could use the learnings to add an Autopilot powered chatbot to a site built on the technology of your choice.

Optimizing Message Delivery with Machine Learning

The global carrier network is constantly changing. With more than 1,000 mobile networks in the world and multiple routes towards each network, it is impossible to manually maintain optimal routing for SMS delivery for all the networks. With a vast amount of route choices, machine learning can help in picking optimal routing, optimize for maximum message delivery, and minimized delivery latency. In this talk, we will give an overview of how Twilio automatically optimizes message delivery using machine learning to improve conversion rate. You will learn how to pick a suitable machine learning approach for your automation problem, how to deal with changing environments, and how to measure your algorithms performance.

Making it "Just Work"

It's called Black Friday for a reason. For many retailers, this is the first day of the year where they go from red to black. And therefore this is arguably the most important day of the year for many of our customers. Twilio customers rely on marketing and transactional communications to reach their customer base without delay. This last Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend, Twilio SendGrid sent over 16.5 billions emails and witnessed no noticeable delays. All this was accomplished without a single alert waking up an engineer. In this session, our experts will share how we prepare for this annual influx in traffic.

How to Build a Quokkabot

Quokkas are the happiest animal in Australia that surprisingly aren't trying to kill you. But can you really be sure that what you're looking at is a Quokka and not something more dangerous? Let's look at how we can build a quokka identifying chatbot, combining Twilio's WhatsApp, MMS and SendGrid APIs with machine learning based image detection powered by Microsoft's Custom Vision API. Join me as we learn how to train and then link up an ML model across multiple communication channels to create an engaging, accessible chatbot. And of course lots of photos of quokkas.
