    TUNING CONVERSATIONAL AI FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
    Karen White (Developer Marketing Manager, Rasa)
    Voice-enabled tools have subtly trained us. We change our behavior to use them: speak briefly, use simple commands, and enunciate loudly and clearly.
    But when we look beyond use cases like “turn on the lights” or basic IVR phone menus, we start to build customer service technologies that have real potential to help users. That means we can begin to “unlearn” some of the limitations associated with earlier generations of voice apps and empower customers to use natural-sounding conversation to interact with software.

    One of the keys to modeling complex conversations is remembering context, even when the user switches topics. In this talk we’ll explore the mechanisms behind AI-driven dialogue and how it enables voice assistants to take on customer contacts that used to be handled exclusively by human agents.
