The current state of conversational AI? with Michelle Gregory
The Data Standard
There’s been so much hype around conversational AI that – unless you’re a researcher in the field – it’s difficult to know what’s possible and what’s not.
Even though AI is still in its early stages of development, it can already offer many benefits to businesses. And conversational AI is surely one of them.
In recent years, the need for implementing chatbots either for customer or sales support has grown tremendously, contributing to the growth of the entire conversational AI market, which is expected to be worth more than $250 million by 2027. As more businesses have started to implement conversational AI, consumers have also been getting friendlier towards chatbots in the past couple of years.
But what is the state of conversational AI now?
Indeed, the current pandemic has introduced some changes to every industry, and conversational AI is not an exception. And the only way we can predict where this industry will be after the pandemic is over is only by analyzing how it is changing right now.
