Meanwhile, Mehul Nagrani, InMoment’s general manager of AI products and technology, shared that the world is now moving beyond structured surveys, and superior machine learning and NLP/NLU are the new keys to unlocking the insights available in all of a company’s data, both structured and unstructured.
