“As a company always committed to reinventing itself, we felt it was time to adapt and evolve Sophie’s software for an improved user experience,” said Stefanini Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Director Fabio Caversan. “Sophie is widely used across our internal team and client portfolio, and we look forward to hearing how Sophie 4.0 can positively support businesses on their digital transformation journey.”

Sophie is well trained in voice processing, text interpretation and self-learning initiation. Using its technology to source information, the AI assistant is easy to train and implement into business. Sophie can achieve the same results as other AI technologies, with five percent of the training required by other tech tools. She was also recognized in the “ISG Provider Lens” report, won the “100 most innovative IT” in the digital industry category and earned the “Bank Report” award in 2018 in the self-service category.
