The company’s latest offerings – dubbed CustomerAI and first revealed in June – include predictive and generative AI tools, coupled with advancements in Twilio’ Segment’s composible data platform.
Jeff Lawson, CEO of Twilio, said: “The tectonic shift in technology that we’ve seen this past year rivals the scale and magnitude of the invention of the Internet. AI has truly captured the hearts and minds of builders across the globe.
“I believe the real value unlock for AI will be pairing large language models with first-party data sets – which is where Twilio is most differentiated.

The announcements from Twilio’s SIGNAL 2023 event include:
CustomerAI Predictions and Voice Intelligence for Enhanced Customer Insights
Twilio’s CustomerAI Predictions allows marketers to effortlessly create highly targeted audiences, trigger personalised customer journeys, and customise multichannel experiences based on factors such as customer lifetime value, purchase intent, and churn likelihood. This functionality is integrated with Segment to provide unified real-time data essential for robust AI model training.
Twilio’s Voice Intelligence tool uses transcription and language analysis to extract insights from speech. It can identify trends and compliance risks, and manage regulatory requirements for Twilio Flex and Voice customers through automated redaction of personal information.
Beta testers have reported improved lead attribution management margins as a result of using Voice Intelligence, Twilio said.
