Next-Generation Text-To-Speech Technology
Amazon Lex is a service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Amazon Lex provides the advanced deep learning functionalities of automatic speech recognition (ASR) for converting speech to text, and natural language understanding (NLU) to recognize the intent of the text, to enable you to build applications with highly engaging user experiences and lifelike conversational interactions. With Amazon Lex, the same deep learning technologies that power Amazon Alexa are now available to any developer, enabling you to quickly and easily build sophisticated, natural language, conversational bots (“chatbots”). Speech recognition and natural language understanding are some of the most challenging problems to solve in computer science, requiring sophisticated deep learning algorithms to be trained on massive amounts of data and infrastructure. Amazon Lex democratizes these deep learning technologies by putting the power of Amazon Alexa within reach of all developers. Harnessing these technologies, Amazon Lex enables you to define entirely new categories of products made possible through conversational interfaces. As a fully managed service, Amazon Lex scales automatically, so you don’t need to worry about managing infrastructure. With Amazon Lex, you pay only for what you use. There are no upfront commitments or minimum fees.
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.

Based on my responses, Wysa built me a “toolkit” with a variety of exercises “for better focus if I’m overwhelmed, to manage conflict, and to relax.” Some of these exercises are based around the practice of mindful meditation, which is an Eastern-influenced and evidence-based approach to managing a variety of psychological issues, especially stress and anxiety. I was also excited to see some yoga poses in my toolkit!
Wit.ai is a platform that enables developers build applications that users can talk to or text to. Wit.ai uses an extensible natural language platform that empowers developers to build those applications. Wit.ai is able to learn human language and interaction and leverages the community. Wit.ai enables developers create text or voice based bots. Through Wit.ai, humans can now easily chat with bots on any messaging platform they prefer. Hands-free mobiles are now taking over the normal mobile phones and preferred mostly by humans. This is because humans can have the mobile experience while doing other activities such as cooking, working…

Pros: Building a bot is really simple with their pre-made templates and a drag and drop flow diagram. We have been using Activechat to automate skills aka flows for different visitors (leads and vendors) and touchpoints through different growth tools (referral path to trigger skills). Broadcasting to 'tagged' subscribers is also straightforward. A real game changer.0

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?
