Web bots have grown to be increasingly powerful over the recent past.
Also known as chatbots, they have helped to somewhat automate some of the repetitive tasks in web communication.
So much goes into making a bot what it is and so much is expected from artificial intelligence (AI), especially as far as measuring the effectiveness of communication is concerned in an e-commerce environment.
To begin with, it is important to understand what web bots to chatbots are, as they act as messengers over the internet and intervene in conversations to ensure continuity and progress.
These computer programs are conversational and strive to provide communication solutions to businesses without the active involvement of company employees.
Chat can be in the form of texts or voice and provides the simplest form of customer service and knowledge base.
Chatbots provide a specific form of content using a simple exchange of questions and answers.
However, they are growing and becoming more sophisticated in the way they operate.
They are not only sophisticated in their approach to acting as rich knowledge bases, but they also apply natural language processing as well as artificial intelligence to help start and maintain stimulating conversations to enable them to achieve the objective for which they were designed.
Bots continue to take over the messaging platforms, such as Facebook, Telegram, Twitter, and even Skype.
While bots and AIs, in general, have been designed to carry out a wide range of functions depending on the designer’s intent, users across the board have universally benefited from the advancement in technology.
Some popular personal assistants (PAs) that have also taken advantage of AI include Google Assistant, Cortana, Siri, and Alexa among others.
All these PAs can take you through the process of purchasing and paying for products online.
Similarly, depending on how they are programmed, web bots can help shoppers to explore e-commerce platforms, make suggestions to them, and even offer personal advice, allowing shoppers and customers to engage with the platform and click through to purchase their desired products.
Chatbots can either be scripted or intelligent. The former follows a predefined way to help address concerns whereas the latter uses artificial intelligence to achieve the desired outcome.
Whereas scripted chatbots cannot chat outside of the predefined rules, intelligent chatbots are more flexible and can respond to a wide range of enquiries using Natural Language input, allowing the user to get an experience similar to that they would get from a human being.
So, as the technology around AI continues to become more advanced, humans can only expect even better experience and interaction with the concept of AI.
Web bots improve the effectiveness of communication by processing the input given by the user and outputting the results in a human-readable format.
They are considered effective because they can offer users instant solutions just like humans would, thereby saving time and frustrations users often go through while waiting for humans to personally respond to their enquiries.
