With Ipsos Askia remains Askia

Talkin’ bots an’ revolution

Talkin bots an revolution

A visit to the ESOMAR congress is a sure way to know what’s the next fad or major shift in Market Research. And in September, I counted 4 papers about chat bots.

Either because maintaining them is time-consuming or because of breaking changes introduced in subsequent platform updates. We have therefore decided to drop support for such obsolete mobile OS versions. Here’s the breakdown: iOS…
