More Than just ChatbotsWhat is conversational AI?

Gone are the days of predefined rule-based chatbots. We enter a new era of conversational Artificial Intelligence (AI), an evolving category that includes a set of technologies to power human-like interactions through automated messaging and voice-enabled applications. It enables personalized experiences, automated as well as human, that drive increased value in commerce and care relationships.

Conversational AI vs. machine-learning chatbots

Chatbots are rule-based programs that provide an appropriate response for a particular scenario. They are triggered by certain keywords and can only attend to one request at a time. Conversational AI refers to all the tools that can be used within AI chatbots to make them more…well, conversational

And that’s where LivePerson stands apart.

Building a truly helpful AI-powered customer experience

How it works

Conversational AI combines natural language understanding (NLU), natural language processing (NLP), and machine-learning models to emulate human language, cognition, and engagement. LivePerson is evolving these conversational AI capabilities to maximize chatbot performance and get us to the future of self-learning AI.

Intent-driven tools

Not only can conversational AI tools help bots recognize human speech and text, they can actually understand what a person wants — the intent behind the inquiry. LivePerson explicitly trained its NLU to support conversational bots throughout the commerce and care customer journey.

Automated responses that feel human

AI doesn’t need to feel artificial. Virtual assistants can be more human without putting strain on live agents, thanks to natural language generation. And that’s what we’re doing with generative AI. LivePerson will help you develop AI-powered digital experiences that automate content creation, improve decision-making, and deliver personalized experiences.
