Indian start-ups In India, we have companies like Joe Hukum, Niki.ai, Helpchat, Haptik, who are working with businesses to enable such intelligent interfaces.

So Many Bots & So Less Data

I am concerned about data.

Think of the detailed interactions that are taking place with bots now, and how little of that data is being captured properly.

An interaction is much more than just pieces of text, its intent based on time and context. All of which require an extensive data collection framework. Context is everything.

Octo.ai Is One Large Data Collection Bot

We provide a highly scalable backend to enable all the smart AI work that chatbots companies are working on. Think of us as providing an internal API based on which you can generate replies, understand intent, personalize!
