AI vs Human Touch: Why Real Interactions Still Matter
Mark Lee of Splashtop examines why when it comes to AI vs Human Touch, real interactions still matter in remote support. A shortage of high-level tech skills has become an accepted fact of life for businesses these days, especially for small and medium-sized businesses that must compete with corporate behemoths and other larger organizations. Businesses have been working to close that gap with technology, investing in effective and affordable remote access technology and other tools, such as automated chatbots, to bolster their support teams. The recent emergence of ChatGPT as an AI-powered all-purpose answer machine also raises the possibility of using artificial intelligence to further enhance support programs. But AI is a double-edged sword that could hinder as well as enhance businesses’ remote IT strategies. And as impressive as ChatGPT is — and for all the possibilities AI has for business uses — it still does not replace person-to-person communications. As more companies default to AI for customer support and relations, human interaction, delivered via seamless remote access, will be the new gold standard.
