In the fast-paced world of today, knowledge of global trends is imperative when it comes to success. Whether you're about to give an elevator pitch or sit down with your employees, what's going on in the world should always inform on your strategy, your content, and your tone. Outdated information is not only useless in the startup world, but also detrimental to your overall success.
But with all the information flying around the world today, what is the best way to figure out what's relevant and what's outdated?
The World of Chatbots
It can take hours to check emails and respond to important messages. But what if a robot could undertake it all. What if a robot could send emails on your behalf and handle the responses received. It could automatically coordinate the topic and time of the speech. Such cooperation would save the organizer more time than they'd know what to do with.
That's a chatbot. For those who don't know, a chatbot is a virtual interlocutor that answers your questions and performs tasks. They can speak for you with customers, reschedule meetings and calls, and even inform people about your availability. Much has been already done in this direction.
Google, Amazon, and Apple, for instance, all have chatbots in the form of the Google Assistant, Amazon Echo, and Siri. These advanced chatbots are connected to your many devices, allowing for more ease of use than ever before.
While the threat of robots taking over humans is always real, human connection will remain a robot-less activity. On the other hand, communication with the purpose of receiving and processing the information, or placing an order might change for the better.
The Future of Technology
Websites and mobile applications are incredibly popular nowadays. But with chatbots becoming more and more popular and advanced, there will be no need to create these programs. There will be only chatbots, which will answer all your questions, perform all your tasks, and get the job done without having to lift a finger.
Speech recognition and synthesis interface are already part of chatbots today. Now we are testing various API to choose most multifunctional and advanced for everyday usage. Before you know it, visual technology will be a thing of the past, and these chatbots will be an integral part of the technology landscape.
