They continue to work in tandem with the machine learning and other technical teams, to deliver a perfect experience.

Delivering an unparalleled customer experience is the key to success for present-day enterprises. Failing to do so, furthermore, these days invite a severe online backlash, which would make it difficult for the companies to recuperate from.

The company is working towards helping customer-facing employees to decode complex human emotions by leveraging Tensor Flow, a machine learning library, in addition to existing data sets of the chatbots' conversations with 200+ million end-users. Brands have a clear pay-off in understanding human emotions. The approach, furthermore, enables a brand to create consistent and personalized messaging for every user and enhance customer engagement.
