Chatbots came marching one-by-one, hurrah, hurrah! While chatbots have been around for about 35 years, they’ve been multiplying in droves lately. There’s good reason these intelligent machines are gaining traction, especially in the business world. Business owners want a virtual assistant to be available on demand, any time of day, to aid visitors and have human-like conversations, answering virtually any question thrown at them. Enter today’s chatbot!
Present day developments in AI (artificial intelligence) are also fueling the rise of the chatbots, as these smart machines are now able to perform tasks including speech recognition, natural language generation, image recognition, text to speech synthesis, and so on. And as intimidating or peculiar as they seem, they are incredible tools doing necessary business functions, saving companies time and helping them serve their customers in ways that matter most.
Check out these Top 5 Chatbot insights for the future:
