What are the reasons for chatbot failures? What are the biggest impediments for them to interact with your precisely designed “colleague”? How to overcome the bias against chatbots that results from bad experience?

Use Chatbots to Unify Your Customer Communication Strategy

A customer calls your customer service line. While on hold, he fires off an email and opens up a support ticket through your website. Before a customer support rep can get back to him, he’s tweeting at you, or posting on your Facebook wall, or both. Each one of these interactions shows up in your system as a separate ticket, even though they’re all from the same customer and related to the same issue. It doesn’t have to be this way.Duplicated support requests like these happen all the time, and are a major cause of wasted resources for customer support (CS) teams, who often have no way to know that all these support tickets are related unless they manually flag them. That can be a time-consuming process, but it’s better than having your reps chasing after open tickets that have already been solved elsewhere. Chatbots can be an important part of

Conversational AI and Psychology: Personalised Automated Brand Interactions

Remember when you had to visit a bank personally to make money transfers or find out about your bank balance? Fortunately, internet banking and mobile banking apps came into existence and dispensed the requirement of visiting a branch for basic banking transactions. Banking has evolved further with conversational AI (chatbots powered by artificial intelligence technology), making it possible for each banking customer to have their own financial assistant. For instance, one of the early adopters of this technology, Bank of America, has deployed Erica, an AI-powered chatbot that helps customers carry out day-to-day banking operations. You can ask Erica for your bank balance information, pay bills, transfer money and even seek personalized budgeting suggestions based on your spending. Great, isn’t it?

One example is Replika, an AI-based friend that listens to you
