Joseph Traynor says
Yes, a Sales Engineer needs to know more about technical requirements and often performs complex and intuitive tasks but With AI I can see a Sales Engineer Manager with a few AI Sales Engineers doing some virtual problem-solving. To be honest I would welcome an AI doing the repetitive parts of my Job and allow me to focus on the Human Intuitive part.
