Technology can to do extraordinary things. Like give customers instantaneous access to everything in your company - on their own terms.

Conversational AI has the power to turn each one of those interactions into a positive experience that resonates long after the chat window closes.


Conversational AI that understands when a human touch is the best option

With boost.ai’s ASU™ (Automatic Semantic Understanding), your virtual agent has the conversational intelligence to truly understand every customer.

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

- Arthur C. Clarke, author and futurist

Conversational AI is effortless but there’s no sleight of hand involved.

It’s just the world’s most advanced conversational AI, built in-house with the secret sauce of natural language processing (NLP) and natural language understanding (NLU) - and the deep learning necessary to continually improve itself.

 
The technology behind a conversational AI platform goes far beyond a simple chatbot

From inquiry to experience in six steps

 
 
On of the benefits of using a chatbot powered by conversational AI in your business is that it prevents customers from waiting a day or longer to receive responses


1. Be where your customers are

Chat is the preferred channel for the digitally-native generation.

If a customer wants to find your opening hours, pay a bill or file an insurance claim they won’t wait around. A virtual agent makes your brand accessible 24/7 on the web and via popular services like Skype, Messenger and Slack.

2. Filter out the noise

Each of your customers are different, so make sure you understand slang, dialect and misspelling.

Using everything from language detection and spelling correction to splitting up combined words, conversational AI applies text-processing
to clean up messy, complicated queries into information your virtual agent can action on.

3. The understanding that helps

Built on a multi-level intent hierarchy, your virtual agent is able to fully grasp the context of any conversation.

Done via an ensemble of prediction models including convolutional neural networks (CNN) and recurring neural networks (RNN), it’s all highly scaleable and incredibly accurate.

 
One of the main benefits of using our chatbot is that you can automate highly complex tasks and perform actions on a customer’s behalf


4. Respond your way

User-friendly software makes building dynamic responses easy.
