Jio launches AI-powered 'Video Call Assistant' at IMC 2019Last updated on Oct 15, 2019, 10:49 am
Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio has graced the Indian Mobile Congress 2019 with a revolutionary new product - Video Call Assistant.
The service, powered by AI, will help you connect with businesses like Jio in a 4G call.
It will be available in multiple languages and work without installing any new app.
Here's all you need to know about it.
Video Call Assistant to connect with businesses
Designed to enhance the experience of customer support, Video Call Assistant appears on a regular 4G call.
It then uses machine learning and AI to listen to and answer the questions a customer may have in the 'most appropriate way'.
This, Jio says, would ultimately help customers dodge IVR and long hold times, saving them from waiting for a customer executive to pick up.
So, how this would work?
While demonstrating the tech at IMC, Jio executives noted that you just have to make a 4G call to access the Assistant.
Basically, when you call a number associated with a particular business, an option to start a video chat would appear.
As you'll click on it, a pre-recorded voice greets and the assistant would be ready to answer spoken queries.
Assistant will also learn from calls
Jio says the Assistant would be able to answer repetitive queries that businesses get and free their executives for important, relevant customer issues.
In one case, the telco showcased that the Assistant was instantly able to inform a customer about the interest on personal loans.
Also, it says that the bot employs an auto-learn capability to learn from past queries and answer more effectively/accurately.
Multiple businesses to use Jio's Video Call Assistant
Jio developed the bot in collaboration with Radisys, a US-based subsidiary of Reliance Industries, and is working with multiple businesses, including HDFC Bank, to make the bot available.
Notably, the company is also offering a Bot Maker, which large/small businesses would be able to use for developing their own audio, video, or text-based Video Call Assistant.
No coding needed at all
Jio emphasized that the bot maker will let businesses create their own AI-based Video Call Assistant in just 5 minutes - without coding or any other effort. Also, they'd get plenty of options to customize the bot, like its avatar, and its answering capabilities.
