Twilio has taken a quantum leap in the realm of customer engagement by launching its revolutionary platform, CustomerAI. This powerhouse brings artificial intelligence to the forefront, offering businesses a comprehensive suite of predictive and generative AI tools and an AI-ready Customer Data Platform (CDP).
Jeff Lawson, CEO of Twilio, compared the current technological upheaval to the invention of the internet. He opined that combining vast language models with first-party data sets is the ultimate use case for AI, a niche where Twilio has a unique edge.
CustomerAI is not just about artificial intelligence but an “AI that’s customer-aware,” as per Kathryn Murphy, SVP of Product at Twilio. This means that every interaction with the system is a learning opportunity, making personalization sharper with every cycle.
Some of the groundbreaking features include:
- Predictive AI for Marketers: CustomerAI Predictions is a game-changer, giving marketers the power to predict future customer behaviors, enhancing campaign performance and revenue potential.

- Generative AI Tools: Twilio’s Engage and Segment platforms will soon be powered by generative AI, enabling marketers to rapidly turn ideas into tangible campaigns. Tools like CustomerAI Generative Email, Smart Headlines, and Smart Image Generator offer smart, conversion-worthy content suggestions.

The new Segment B2B Edition lets businesses weave intricate relationships across their customer data.

Partnerships with giants like Google Cloud, Databricks, and Snowflake further solidify Twilio’s intent to create an ecosystem that’s built for the future, with AI at its core.
For businesses, this might be the moment where customer engagement transcends to a new dimension, where each interaction is not just personal but personal in real time.
