A chatbot is now majorly performing activities like answering FAQs, providing assistance, and solving queries triggered by the user.

What is important while conducting such conversations is to maintain a human touch till the end. What do I mean by human touch?

Let us look at the following points to see what happens in a human to human conversation?

  • In an h2h conversation, the spoken words are understood clearly.
  • We don’t talk two different things at the same time (except when there is an argument). We maintain the context of our conversation.
  • Understand the major pain points during the conversations.

All these points make the conversation understandable, pleasant, and flowing in a direction. Chatbot popularized for its ability to strike conversations with the user, the above-mentioned points plays an imperative role to provide a better user experience making the conversation look more human than robotic.

The bot can effectively perform such activities with the help of Artificial Intelligence. AI gives the bot the ability to think and talk like a human.

Artificial intelligence consists of two major elements that are Natural language Processing and Machine Learning. They are interconnected terms working with the same purpose of providing a high quality of output.

Machine learning is an algorithm that helps the bot to learn from queries/data. When a query gets triggered, Machine learning helps the bot to first monitor the past conversation it had with the user and give a response accordingly.

Natural Language Processing is popularly known as NLP, which provides assistance to the bot to understand and interpret the information closely. With NLP, you train your chatbot with various intents that the user will type during the conversation and these intents will streamline the response to the query.




The combination of NLP and Machine learning gives you a first-hand data of understanding customer needs. But here the question might hit that how can we use this technology? or how do they have to set this up?
