PODCASTS
🤖💬 As a long-time NBA analyst, Eran Soroka knows a winner. Today, he champions the use of chatbots to help organizations drive conversations with their users.

In this episode, Eran talks about not only the commercial use of chatbots, but also for the greater good: like helping Pakistani girls learn about feminine hygiene, teaching civics, and how his 9-year-old set up a chatbot to study English.

How creating chatbots can be a slam dunk
