Conversational AI

The Conversational aspect refers to the application of Language (both Voice and Text) based Interfaces to interact with computing devices and applications to get things done and the Artificial Intelligence (AI) aspect refers to the usage of Big Data and Machine Learning techniques to provide a more personalized customer experience at scale and the Virtual Assistants to automate communication and provide new channels.

The real power of Conversational AI lies in the ability to simultaneously carry out, highly context aware, personalized conversations with very large numbers of customers and users and creating better engagement levels.

  • Underlying technology around Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have reached their inflection point in terms of maturity and affordability

Conversational and Healthcare – the perfect synergy.
