Fortunately, the next advancement in chatbot technology that can solve this problem is gaining steam -- AI-powered chatbots. By leveraging machine learning and natural language processing, AI-powered chatbots can understand the intent behind your customers’ requests, account for each customer’s entire conversation history when it interacts with them, and respond to their questions in a natural, human way.
This allows businesses to build advanced conversational interfaces into any device, website, apps or cloud. Developed by IBM, it does not require users to have any prior coding experience. Watson Assistant is pre-trained with content from specific industries and allows businesses to build and deploy conversational interactions. Although the Lite versions with limited features come for free, packages start from $120 for 1,000 users per month along with a free 30-day trial.
