Kaspersky says AI won’t disrupt PH BPO

Cybersecurity and anti-virus provider Kaspersky Lab said artificial intelligence (AI) should not disrupt the local call center business in a negative way. Vitaly Kamluk, Director of Great APAC Kaspersky Lab, said that while he is convinced that AI is already here, there will always be a difference between humans and machines. However, Kamluk said Philippine call center players need to invest and improve the quality of their people so that there will always be a better quality when it comes to comparing machines versus humans. He said having less skilled workers could make them comparable to machines answering calls.
