Chatbots are now being used quite extensively in many websites with the intention to provide immediate customer support to users. Chatbots are essentially chatter bots that are programmed to interact with customers based on the data that it receives. The chatbot is ready to answer several frequently asked questions. Additionally, it can answer further responses the user might have and thus engage in a conversation. The chatbot also stores the information of the user’s queries and details so if the user comes back and starts a conversation with the chatbot, it will retrieve the data and continue the conversation.

Voice Search & Speech Recognition

Conversational User Interfaces (CUI) are at the heart of the current wave of AI development. Smart assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Home, are very relevant these days as they allow the common to be an active participant of this technology. One of the greatest effects of an increase in voice searches would be the volume of data that could open up to marketers. For example, it might be able to identify users’ home region based on their accent, choice of words and pattern of speech. Voice searches are more casual and can lead to tremendous increase in search volume. Marketers can use this to find more details about how users are searching which can allow them to solve puzzling market research mysteries.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is another aspect of AI that could be used to provide consumers the ability to see and feel the product before purchasing. This allows consumers to make decisions easily as they are able to perceive the product before purchasing. This stimulates a prompt response from the consumer and in turn increases the revenue. Consumers can see details of products very easily simply by allowing their gadget to face. With virtual fitting rooms, a consumer can try on clothes without having to actually put them on. The size and fit would automatically be recognised. Virtual mirrors can allow consumers to try on makeup without having to use any makeup.

This is done using cookies. When a user visits a website, a cookie is saved to the computer. The cookie has details about your visit that help separate you into a specific group. This makes you a target for advertisers and hence only relevant information appears on your screen. Behavioral data can also be combined with other user information such as purchase history to create a more complete user profile. Audience Insights are also used to extract data and displays advertisements based on the region, sex, and age.
