More about Chatbots

Chatbots (often referred to as “bots”) are computer programs that interact with users in a way that mimics a human conversation. The interaction can range from keyword-driven queries to elaborate digital assistants that learn and deliver increasing levels of personalization the more it interacts with users. Driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI), natural-language processing (NLP), and machine learning (ML), chatbots have the ability to process data and respond through voice, email, messaging, and text.

There are two types of chatbots:

  • Rule-based chatbots: Chatbots that are guided by a series of pre-defined rules. The rules determine the types of use cases the chatbot recognizes and can deliver solutions for.
  • Conversational AI chatbots: Chatbots that combine machine learning and NLP to understand the context and intent of a question prior to responding, then generate their own answers. The more these bots are utilized and trained, the more the bots learn and increase their personalization with the user.
