Analyst Take: The incorporation of AI technologies is causing the communications landscape to undergo rapid transformation. Twilio, led by CEO Khozema Shipchandler and CMO Chris Koehler, is strategically focusing its research & development activities on specific objectives that aim to efficiently address the evolving needs of its clients. This enhanced emphasis demonstrates a wider trend in the business toward targeted, influential AI applications in customer engagement.
