Others are very complex and may even surprise the most technically savvy with their efficiency and ability to solve our problems without ever interacting with another person. A conservative field, which has only recently started to take advantage of tech innovations, the banking world is a prime example of where technology can solve many of our problems as customers – where the use of chat bots can reduce friction points while improving the operational efficiency and reduce the cost to serve for the banks that service our financial needs. leveraging natural language processing to interpret and respond to specific text and voice commands (questions).
