Redefine your Conversational AI for the Best Customer Engagement

Conversational AI for Customer Engagement

Innovation in conversational AI, fused with the propagation of messaging apps, is fuelling the progress of chatbots. Humans are inherently able to talk and connect in natural language. However, we weren’t born with panels to swipe or keyboards to key in text. Our ears and eyes are set to take external information in a verbal and written manner and process it through our brain optimized for language. This is what artificial intelligence does, through system simulation, to help businesses better engagement of their customers.

Usually, bots are using NLP technology for queries and provide answers to customers, thereby capably surpassing customer engagement for your business.

The conversational AI or chatbot craze commenced in 2016 with Facebook’s revelation of a user-friendly platform to develop conversational AI on Facebook messenger. Shortly, chatbots were publicized as the next stage of the conversational revolution.

Artificial intelligence is going to redefine how consumers can get success, and your marketing department is likely focused, or must be focused, on customer engagement as a key to thriving in this digital era.

Understanding Conversational AI

One of the amazing inventions of AI is ‘Conversational AI’ (chat-based or voice exchanges) which is the usage of messaging apps, speech-based assistants, and chatbots to automate communication and create personalized customer experiences for your business. According to the global survey, it is expected that businesses are leveraging the AI for best customer engagement.

Conversational exchanges are driven by words, whether in complete sentences or a set of words. Moreover, unlike social channels, they can help to engage, two-way connections with private listeners. When merged with automation and artificial intelligence (AI), these connections can connect humans and machines through virtual assistants and chatbots.

There are multiple areas in the field of AI, out of which conversational AI is the most sought after around the globe. Conversational AI is the biggest support to the B2B organizations as it serves their customers in a way that entire queries are resolved which gives peace of mind to you and them. It has wide applications in several fields viz. Real estate, Healthcare, hospitality, banking, education, and many more.

As digital footprints expand across the world, it is expected that by 2020, 30% of all B2B enterprises will deploy artificial intelligence to boost their primary sales process in various sectors. Conversational AI is one such area where businesses can streamline their customer engagement management platform.

You, as a business, would want to put your best foot forward when it comes to your customer engagement on digital platforms. You can do so by either incorporating a new digital platform or by redefining the existing ones.

Cognitive Conversations Leads The Latest Innovations In AI

Cognitive Conversational AI

Machines started to respond to humans based on the intents we humans provide.

It is here AI in business began for conversation purposes.

But the problem is AI will respond to the trained intent or utterances.

It has become a bottleneck for the enterprise in handling natural language used by the customers.

To solve this, AI companies started developing Cognitive AI technologies that have given birth to cognitive conversations.

And Cognitive Artificial intelligence is one of the latest innovations made by AI.

Every innovation motive is to build solutions that solve business problems.

AI professional experts also predict that in the coming next five to ten years.

The machine conversation capability will progress extensively that will lead to a flock of life-changing artificial intelligence applications.

We are entirely moving to the era of Conversational AI systems. It is a combination of NLP, AI, and machine learning to understand and respond to voice/text in a personalized and engaging manner.

And all enterprises will shift from scripted conversations to cognitive conversations very soon.

In this blog, we let you be acquainted with how cognitive conversations are leading the latest innovations in AI.

Before that, you must understand the differences between cognitive conversations and scripted conversations.

Cognitive Conversations Vs. Scripted Conversations

Cognitive conversations vs Scripted conversations

Continue reading!

Let’s look out how cognitive conversation platforms lead to the latest innovations in AI.

Cognitive Assistants

Cognitive Assistant is the latest technical innovation developed using the latest innovations of AI or Conversational AI.

These assistants can be used for various purposes, such as workplace and customer care.

The assistants help contact centers improve customer experience, customer engagement, and new revenue systems by minimizing agents’ response time by offering self-service for mundane tasks.

We at Nuacem develop top-end cognitive assistants or best AI chatbots that work very well with text/voice. Soon, we are launching intelligent video assistants to help our clients be ahead of their competitors.

Multilingual

Every enterprise or business is planning to localize its business to reach the maximum number of customers.

Most of the Chatbots’ problem is they support limited and popular languages used across the globe.

But, we at Nuacem offer multilingual cognitive ai technologies bots that support 55+ languages.

With these multilingual digital intelligent agents, humans can converse in their natural language and quickly solve their issues.

Augmented Intelligence

It is a combination of Machine Intelligence and human cognitive abilities.

Augmented Intelligence is another latest advancement that came from the branch of Artificial Intelligence.

Augmented Intelligence is the technology that helps to enhance human capacity rather than replacing them. It follows five a five function intonation that enables it to become skilled at human Intelligence.

Augmented Intelligence helps enterprises to make optimal decision from available solutions that automatically improve employee productivity and decrease operational costs for an organization.

Omni-Channel

We live in the digital world, where most users spend most of their time on mobile phones.

And currently, customers are more interested in online shopping rather than visiting physical stores.

The retail companies are planning to shift to the omnichannel approach from a multi-channel approach to improve their sales.

Omni-channel approach helps in making cognitive conversations with the customers to provide a seamless customer experience through various channels such as desktop, mobile, messaging apps, and many more.

This conversational commerce provides a guiding experience for valuable customers to purchase services and goods through their chosen channels.

At Nuacem, we offer a top-notch Omni-channel platform using Conversational AI to improve retail enterprises’ sales and revenue.

Sentiment Analysis

Traditional product/service contact centers are facing troubles inadequately analyzing the customer emotions and sentiments (Positive, Neutral, and Negative) on services/products from the text.

It is where conversational/cognitive sentiment analysis comes into existence as an advancement in Artificial Intelligence.

Sentiment analysis uses NLP, text analysis, and computational linguistics to identify, extract, and study affective states, emotions, and personal information.

Sentiment analysis is used for the proper routing of customer calls to authorized departments. It examines cognitive conversations between humans and enterprises and suggests the firms where to improve and where to not.

At Nuacem, our sentiment analysis platform will also examine the voice sentiment along with the text, but other conversational AI providers only provide text sentiment analysis.

Apart from text and voice sentiment analysis, soon, we are coming with more updates.

Final words

NLU Chatbot Evaluation- 3 Common Errors and 5 Key Steps

The dream of any chatbot developer or product owner is to have an accurate report of how their chatbot is performing. But how can you ensure the continuous improvement of your chatbot?

The “Achilles’ heel” of NLU chatbots is the accuracy to correctly identify the user’s intent and avoid:

1. responding with the wrong intent

2. transferring to a human agent due to lack of confidence, when it should have understood the intent from the beginning

3. responding when it doesn’t have to, instead of passing it on to an agent

The first thing we need to do to prevent this from happening is to know when, how and why these errors happen. Once we have this information, we will be able to retrain and correct NLU training or engine errors.

However, there is no tool on the market that can give us this information accurately — a machine can’t really tell when it’s not doing its job properly, right?

At Bitext, we have created a semi-automated methodology that allows us to tag, analyze and process the data in order to get that precise snapshot of our chatbot’s NLU performance, from which we can improve and evolve it. If you would like to learn more about it, make sure to contact us.

The idea is simple: a manually curated objective assessment, a detailed report that takes multiple dimensions into account, and a root cause analysis and retraining based on linguistics. No more “black boxes,” and no more throwing our hands up in the air because “this is all we have.”

From now on, if your chatbot doesn’t work properly and you can’t even identify the reason why with some certainty, Bitext can help you. If you haven’t already launched you bot, this is the best time to get it right! We recommend that you follow these steps to guarantee the success of the NLU model.

3. Concierge Bot: Handle Multiple Chatbots from One Chat Screen

4. An expert system: Conversational AI Vs Chatbots

The five key steps would be:

1. correctly identifying your use cases

2. building a comprehensive ontology

3. develop clear definitions for categories, intents and dialogues to avoid overlap

4. generate extensive data, adapted to the user profile for your chatbot

5. put monitoring, evaluation and retraining model in place to produce measurable improvements over time

This is the method that we have developed and have been successfully implementing over the last 2 years. Are you ready to give it a try? Request a demo or let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Design Chatbot Conversations -Reveal chatbot’s personality!

Have you ever wondered who designs a chatbot conversation? Who decides what reply the bot will give? How does the chatbot respond?

I stumbled upon an opportunity to write conversations for chatbots without any prior technical knowledge. You don’t need any! All you need is to be creative with your words and create conversations that are human-centric. Allowing users to have a natural conversation with the chatbot but simultaneously be in control of their experiences.

78% of business to customer communication is going to be done through bot messengers within the next three to five years — 
– Mikael Yang, Many Chat

What does a Conversation designer do?

A conversation designer bridges the communication gap between humans and chatbots whilst giving a personality to the bot.
A personality is created by using NLP that interprets natural language using machine learning algorithms. It relates thoughts, language, and patterns of behavior learned through experience to specific outcomes.
Conversation Designers use these algorithms, reinforce them with a pre-analyzed set of texts that the machine uses to “learn”. This continual learning makes a chatbot more intelligent and increases the chatbot’s effectiveness over time.

Chatbot with a personality!

The success of a chatbot lies in an exceptionally well-written conversation. That happens only when the conversation designer can create a flow where the users are engaged and the answers are foreseen. The conversation designer should thus be able to create conversation flow from multiple viewpoints.
In an online study, 790 participants were persuaded by a chatbot for a charity donation. The design created involved two chatbot identities and four personality strategies, where participants were randomly assigned to different conditions. Findings showed that the perceived identity of the chatbot had significant effects on the persuasion outcome (i.e., donation) and interpersonal perceptions (i.e., competence, confidence, warmth, and sincerity).

This goes to show that developing a personality for a chatbot is the number one factor for increasing user engagement. A personality gives users and customers an experience that is similar to a real person thus creating a memorable chat experience.

How to develop a conversation for a Chatbot?

Identify Use case

When developing a chatbot conversation it is essential to understand the use case for the chatbot. The bot persona can be developed by understanding the use case and the user persona.
For example, if the chatbot is required for a hospital the user persona here is quite different, anxious perhaps confused. The bot persona must reflect confidence and comfort to ensure the conversation is as smooth as possible and users are engaged.

Phatic Communication
Creating a set of default responses to some questions that users usually ask can bring a chatbot to life! Chatbot users do come up with whacky questions at times to test the bots, it is important to answer them creatively and strengthen the bot’s architecture with human qualities.
Some questions that a chatbot must be able to answer are-
-Are you a robot?
-Are you human?
-Good morning/evening/afternoon/night
-Tell me something!
-I have a question?
-Who made you?

Set Keywords
Keywords are the easiest way to customize your chatbot to address specific user requests Setting keywords to intents is an integral part of understanding how your bots will reply. It broadens the accuracy of your chatbot. The trained bot locates keywords and directs the conversation at each node by offering a couple of pre-set response options.

Keywords

Plan the right image
Roleplay while designing a conversation during the development process. Foreseeing what users might respond to a particular question can help create engaging chatbots. As I said creating a personality is very important for a chatbot, but somehow a personality is already created whether or not you consciously decide to implement one.

Plan the conversation flow
This is probably the most crucial step while creating a chatbot conversation, it is recommended to create a flow to the chatbot beforehand to avoid dead ends and abrupt flow. Knowing where the conversation is heading next avoids errors while developing. Understanding the intent of the user; to listing all the possible responses is helpful when a framework is developed.

Conversational framework

Avoid monologues.
Users don’t want to read monologues or paragraphs about anything. Keep it short, make it easy for users to understand dialogues. Instead of one big conversation make it several smaller conversations and engage users to the next response.

Test with users
This is crucial to test your chatbots ‘Brain’ when you input several predicted intents of the users it is important to test the accuracy with several users. This is because one user might ask questions in several different ways.

In conclusion, a good chatbot will do more than just respond, it will understand user intents and analyze conversations and hence converse with users. There is a lot that goes into consideration while designing a chatbot, but this information is just enough to know what to keep in mind while designing a flow. Now that you know how to level up your chatbots, get to practice now!

Multilingual Voice Assistants: The Future of Conversational Customer Engagement

Multilingual Chatbot

As the internet is a global phenomenon and your current and potential customers are spread virtually the entire globe, localization is an important factor to consider. If you localize your website in a better way, you have more chances for reaching out to a wide range of people in a way they prefer and appreciate.

Also, not only in geography, users differ in the problems they face, needs they have, and a lot of other ways. A Voice assistant is a convenient way for users to interact with and get all their problems solved. With advancements in technology, particularly in Speech recognition ai, multilingual voice assistants are being developed which have the power to personally engage a wide range of people in their own language through speech! They are capable of accurate Multilingual speech recognition and with the combined power of big data analytics, text to speech, and machine learning, they can give personalized and to-the-point solutions.

In this article, let us discuss all the major things about multilingual voice assistants and the multilingual voice AI platform and how they can be the future of conversational customer engagement. If you are new to the terms or just need a refreshment, let us start at the beginning and explain what having multilingual aspects, more correctly the localization really means and what voice assistants are:

What is localization and voice assistant?

Many people mistakenly think that localization is just translation to a different language. But actually, localization is the process of adapting certain content to the language and other standards of a country or a specific region. According to internet world stats, only 25.9% of the whole users of the Web are native speakers of English. People as up to 2.7 billion are from generally non-English speaking countries who would love to see content in their native language.

Speaking about Voice Assistant, you may already know Google Assistant, Apple Siri, or Amazon Alexa. They are all voice assistants and their job is to help us through different activities and the primary mode of interaction is voice. The user interacts using voice and also the system gives output using voice. In this world where technology is becoming less and less tangible, Voice assistants have that sense of tangibility that many people like.

Usually, all voice assistants would have a certain wake word that initiates their operation. Many major voice assistants, like Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri are multilingual.

Now that you know about localization and voice assistants, let us now discuss how multilingual voice assistants would help for better customer engagement and your business.

Multilingual voice assistants combine to take the core strength of Voice assistants and improve it exponentially through localization. So, in order to understand the true power and advantages of multilingual voice assistants, you need to understand the benefits of both having a Conversational Voice AI and localization.

Helps in greater accessibility and reach

This is an obvious one. Setting up your voice assistant for Automated speech recognition of multiple languages makes sure that people who might not know English or your primary working language are able to access your services. The “lack” of knowledge of English does not necessarily mean that your customer might not know English at all.

Consider groceries for example, even though many can talk English in various levels, they might not know the exact terms for their preferred groceries.

Better Customer Acquisition

Not all users become your customers at the first incidence on your site. If you deploy a multilingual voice assistant on your site, then, people at different levels of the sales funnel have a better chance of conversion as the multilingual Conversational Voice AI Platform would largely increase the UX. Also, with this, you can enter new markets with a lot of ease compared to not having a multilingual Voice AI Platform.

Increases Brand Loyalty

Customers usually stick and stay loyal to the brands that give importance to them and provide a great user experience. By localizing your content to your customers’ language and general tastes, you would intuitively communicate that you respect and highly value their language, and also as user experience would be great, there would surely increase brand loyalty.

Gives you a competitive edge over your competitors

It would be a certainly rare situation where you do not have competitors in any given field and space. By having a multilingual Voice Interface, you would certainly be a step ahead of your global competitors who might not yet have implemented it in their sites. This would give you a competitive edge over them in those particular areas.

However, not only with them, multilingual voice assistants can help you level the playing field with local competitors because people would not see you as a complete outsider.

An interesting development that could take place is streamlined conversations with the assistant. As we have already said, most of the assistants would have a wake word to activate them. This might make interaction inconvenient at times and now research is being done to train assistants to understand the context and respond to certain contextual queries automatically.

High integration in different areas, increased focus on security, more individualized experience, voice-based push notifications are some of the key trends that are expected to unfold in this decade.
