In this issue, we’re looking at a company that may one day be as well known as Salesforce. Peak hasn’t been going for long, but is quickly gaining ground as artificial intelligence’s answer to the customer relationship management (CRM) system.

We speak to Peak CEO Richard Potter to find out how the company is changing the AI game for businesses and the plans to dominate the industry.

Looking further forwards, what does the future hold for AI? We hear from Alex McMullan, CTO of EMEA, Pure Storage about what lies ahead. From intelligent machines to healthcare, there’s a lot to prepare for.

For many businesses, AI offers the potential to personalise customer service beyond anything previously thought possible. And one company making serious headway in this area is Booking.com. We hear from CMO Pepijn Rijvers about how technology is driving a transformation in this area.

Plus, we also find out how AI is being used to improve a customer’s emotional journey, and look at some of the startups using the technology to transform industries.

And if that wasn’t enough, we also find out which industries will grow or shrink in response to automation, discover how AI is transforming Formula One and find out how AI is being used to improve cancer treatment.

Take a look at the latest issue of Verdict AI for all this, and more, on the world of artificial intelligence.
