This form of obtaining information from the collective intelligence of a large number of people allows Cleverbot to respond in new conversations by taking into account the context of the conversation typed by a user and searching its database for an appropriate response. It scans its history for every user-submitted response to the given question and replies accordingly, which creates a more human-like conversation with users.
Cons: The Learning Academy and help topics are not sufficient to train you to use this product. It took a lot of stumbling through (and still does) on how to figure out what to do and how to train the chatbot. Also - support is only available through email, would be extremely helpful to be able to get help in realtime.... You would think a chat product would have the ability to LiveChat with it's customers!
Overall: Botengine acts as our stand-in customer support agent on Sundays,which is a day when there are no human agents manning our Livechat ,either from the office or from home.Thus ,rather than have most website visitors simply opening a ticket ,they get attended to by our chatbot. And their issues get resolves and in cases when the issue is complex and can't be resolved by our chatbot,it guides the website visitor through the process of opening a ticket.

Cons: Botengine has reduced the workload on the helpdesk department . However ,I fear we may come one day have an advanced Botengine ,years down the line ; which is able to respond to the current complex queries we respond to and thus when that day comes , why would my employer keep me at the job ,when a Bot can do a better job ,without ever getting tired?
