Slides PDF Video

In the customer age, being able to extract relevant communications information in real-time and cross reference it with context is key. Learn how Salesforce Inbox is using data science and engineering to enable salespeople to monitor their emails in real-time and surface insights and recommendations.

Salesforce is developing Einstein, an artificial intelligence capability built into the core of the Salesforce Platform. Einstein helps power the world’s smartest CRM to deliver advanced AI capabilities to sales, services, and marketing teams – allowing them to discover new insights, predict likely outcomes to power smarter decision making, recommend next steps, and automate workflows so users can focus on building meaningful relationships with every customer.

Find out how Salesforce Einstein Inbox combines activity data, such as emails, with contextual and CRM data to provide real-time insights and recommended actions. Learn about use cases, architecture, and how a variety of technologies including data engineering, data science, graph processing, NLP, machine learning and deep learning are combined together to support the application.

This session will include an interactive demo where you’ll get to see the associated code using notebooks running Spark.
