Uniform announces CMS capabilities for Visual Workspace

Uniform announced the addition of new CMS capabilities to its Uniform Visual Workspace, to expand the basic concept of a CMS from a single-source content repository to unified, multi-source one. This enables brands to leverage content from any source without writing any integration logic, setting up unreliable data synchronization processes, or moving content into yet another repository. In the Visual Workspace, mapping fields from different content sources is done without developer involvement. Localization, versioning and asset management are now part of the Visual Workspace.

For brands who already have one or more CMSs in place, this creates an opportunity to work with a single content model that spans those systems, along with any other content sources they use – be they legacy, monolithic, composable, or bespoke. With generative AI integrated throughout the Visual Workspace, new content can be created almost instantly. Uniform provides guardrails that ensure generative AI is creating accurate, on-brand content, using the language models you choose.

ActionIQ announces CXAI to integrate GenAI data & GenAI content

ActionIQ, an Enterprise Customer Data Platform, announced the launch of CXAI, a suite of AI-enabled solutions purpose-built for customer experience (CX), marketing, and data teams. The first CXAI release introduces two modules, CXAI Data and CXAI Content. Together, these capabilities are meant to help marketers deliver personalized creative content to individual audience members.


  • GenAI Audiences. An audience co-pilot for marketers, bringing a natural language interface to GenAI for marketers to build audiences, analyze performance, and uncover insights. Marketers can design the audiences and experiences they want, in their own language, without requiring SQL or data expertise.
  • AI Decisioning & Analytics. A new decisioning engine for personalizing customer experiences. AI Decisioning makes recommendations and optimizes for the best audience, products, offers, lookalikes, channel preference, and more. AI Decisioning can use out-of-the-box models, custom models, or in-house models.

CXAI Content. Today, we are announcing an exciting new partnership with Typeface, a generative AI platform for enterprise content creation. With ActionIQ CXAI Content and Typeface Multimodal Content Hub integration, marketers and designers create customized, on-brand content that aligns with ActionIQ’s audiences, and can be activated across any channel.

Pega introduces Pega GenAI Knowledge Buddy

Pegasystems Inc., announced Pega GenAI Knowledge Buddy, a generative AI assistant to enable customers and employees to get specific answers synthesized by generative AI from content scattered across knowledge bases.

With Knowledge Buddy, customers and employees can ask questions through conversational interfaces and get specific, accurate, audited, and concise responses – with transparent attribution to source content. Users can also ask Knowledge Buddy to generate new content, such as emails or documents, based on their existing libraries. Additionally, security features give organizations control over user access rights as well as transparency to understand how and from where the technology pulls information. Content authors will be able to add, update, or delete knowledge, with all actions managed and audited by Pega’s workflow automation. 

Organizations will be able to configure unique Buddies for different use cases – such as answering marketing, operations, sales, or service questions – and quickly integrate them into any internal system or digital channel.

Pega Knowledge Buddy also connects to knowledge libraries within Pega Knowledge Management, which allows organizations to build, manage, and optimize content by assisting content authors and managers during the curation process and enables content versioning and lifecycle management.

Especially interesting, not to mention timely, is his experience with newsrooms which he uses as a test case. (13 min)

Using the recent New York Times complaint about Open AI, Arvind Narayanan & Sayash Kapoor explain why the case is so complex, and why GenAI “Output similarity is a distraction. Training is the real problem.” (7 min)
