Human-machine interaction has come a long way since the inception of the interactions of humans with computers. Breaking loose from earlier clumsier attempts at speech recognition and non-relatable chatbots; we’re now focusing on perfecting what comes to us most naturally—CONVERSATION. 

Conversation bot design is the most happening thing when it comes to AI computing and an essential thing to consider for making products smart and digitally inclusive. With the rapid progress in AI and specifically in NLP computing, language interpretation has improved considerably, making a near-normal conversation possible since the time Siri was first introduced in iPhone 4s in 2011.

Today we see, chatbots have proliferated as part of the web application extensions. Adding a voice or chat interface is the fastest way to qualify an application AI-ready, the chatbot is also the strategy for the mobile-first digital economy. Natural Language (Conversation) interface is the preferred mode of intelligent interaction between humans and the technology they use, own, and wear. Consumers want to use everyday phrases, terminology, and expressions to control apps, online services, devices, cars, mobiles, wearables, and connected systems (IoT), and they expect quick & intelligent responses.

Consumers today highly value quick and efficient communication; Currently available slot-filling chat-bots which are at some point of time non-relatable and frustrating at the worst do not fit the bill. For such cases, these are the most important characteristics sought in terms of conversational AI/bots: Multilingual Conversational Engines, Human experience to any interaction, context-aware & intuitive, & response adaptation as per customer sentiment.

Opportunities & Challenges

Evolving consumer behavior and the proliferation of digitally connected technologies are propelling customer-centric services and products to the fore. As per reports, 84% of companies that focus on improving customer experience report an increase in annual revenue. 

Engaging and successful conversations are the most critical factor in enhancing customer experience. However, successful conversations that engage customers for longer durations require a good understanding of intent and sentiments; this can be challenging without using deep learning technologies and neural networks.

The existing voice assistants still have mundane responses; you need to understand the technology like framing questions in a specific predetermined format, usage of predetermined or programmed keywords, etc. A simple combination of tasks like “Turn on the AC and lock the car” is still challenging for the bots to comprehend and execute. Besides, present-day bots cannot derive context or retain context from previous conversations with the same user.

To build an intelligent Conversational Agent, understanding user intent is critical. There are many parts to this challenge, too many variables to solve. Human comprehension of language is complex, and not everything of it is verbal. As human listeners, we consider many things like the speaker’s facial expression, hand, and body movement, which is also called ‘body language that is unfortunately not under the purview of the NLP computing domain. Language understanding has the following vital parts, and each of them needs to be solved separately to figure out the holy grail:

  • Understanding semantics (lexical)
  • Understanding syntax
  • Understanding context (both short and long term)
