Customer Experiences with Contact Center AI - Dialogflow CX Training

In this Dialogflow course, master designing customer conversations using Contact Center Artificial Intelligence (CCAI). You’ll use Dialogflow CX to create virtual agents and test them using the simulator. Learn to add functionality to access data from external systems, making virtual agents conversationally dynamic. You'll be introduced to testing methods, connectivity protocols, APIs, environment management, and compliance measures. Learn best practices for integrating conversational solutions with your existing contact center software and implementing solutions securely and at scale.
