I always love to see what types of people I’m paired with in a situation like this. I was initially given all women in their 40s and decided to ask for “more options,” just to see what that looked like. I was then given a wider array of ages, as well as one man. After making my choice (I chose the man), I received my first voice text within a couple of days.
In the recent years, the growth in popularity of chatbots has been the result of the amount of research poured into its underlying technology. These AI-powered bots are now being integrated in various industries such as payments, banking, customer service, and even pure personal amusement. The birth of chatbots developed from the curiosity of whether a robot can really fool any human into believing that it is human as well.

Chatbots utilize natural language processing (NLP) and speech recognition to understand written and spoken requests; businesses can leverage this technology to automate tasks that formerly required human intervention. Based on a request from a user, the chatbot provides the user with an output, which is a response to the request in text or speech form. With the use of machine learning and deep learning, chatbots can grow intelligently and understand a wider vocabulary and colloquial language, as well as provide more precise and correct responses to requests.

DB: Next, I moved on to the options that are centered on real-life (versus artificial intelligence) support. Joyable is an online platform that supports users with a dedicated real-life coach and a two-month course in CBT. It was developed by a powerhouse team of experts and scientists in the field of therapy. It costs $99 per month, though users can opt for a free, seven-day trial.
Typically, customer service chatbots answer questions based on key words. The most basic systems are actually document retrieval systems. Sometimes this is frustrating. Think of the times you may have asked Siri or Alexa a question and received the wrong answer. The computer recognizes key words but may not recognize the context in which they are being used. In other words, the computer doesn’t recognize the way people naturally speak. This causes the customer great frustration. However, these systems (including Siri and Alexa) have come a long way and continue to improve.
