January 17, 2023 | DÜSSELDORF and SAN FRANCISCO – Cognigy, the market leader in Conversational AI, today announced that its platform, Cognigy.AI, will be enhanced with Generative AI, or Large Language Models (LLMs) like OpenAI’s GPT-3, to augment Conversational AI deployments. The adoption of Generative AI will help to further transform enterprise customer service and contact centers by creating advanced conversational experiences and driving efficiency.
Generative AI solutions have skyrocketed in recent months. As one example, ChatGPT, which was built by OpenAI on top of GPT-3 and made available for public testing on November 30, 2022, crossed one million users within one week of its launch.
As an AI company at the forefront of building contact center solutions, Cognigy is already taking Generative AI to the next level of practical deployment. When combined, Generative AI-powered Conversational AI solutions augment bot authors so they can now create better bots in a fraction of the time. Cognigy is focused on using Generative AI to support bot authors and improve conversations.
“Generative AI combined with traditional Conversational AI platforms can deliver value that extends far beyond what each component can deliver alone,” said Philipp Heltewig, co-founder and CEO at Cognigy. “We see tremendous value in leveraging LLMs in a way that augments human tasks rather than operating autonomously. With our integrated approach, brands are now able to benefit from a better customer experience and lower cost to serve through the use of Generative AIs.”
Cognigy has identified three key areas where Generative AI has an impact today when coupled with Conversational AI:
- Enhancing the user experience through advanced AI-powered conversations that are tailored to the individual's context and preferences
- Improving agent performance by leveraging the capabilities of language models in natural language understanding and generation
- Streamlining the development and deployment of enterprise-level conversational bots, resulting in increased efficiency and cost savings
“This is only the beginning,” continued Heltewig. “We see a future where Generative AIs will be powering and orchestrating end-to-end conversations. 2023 promises to be a year of transformation when it comes to how bots are deployed and how they augment our lives. This is truly a game changer for businesses.”
The Cognigy.AI platform enables next-generation customer service with a suite of solutions, including Conversational IVR, Smart Self-Service, and Agent + Assist. Cognigy.AI enables enterprises to deliver 24/7, personalized service experiences at scale, on both voice and chat.
