ABOUT THE EPISODE
The chat window that pops up when you’re on a website – how sure are you that you’re chatting with a human or an Ai Bot? If you knew incorporating an Ai chatbot will increase sales by 30% - would you replace part of your customer support team? What then will you train this team to do?

How does a chatbot mimic human empathy? Is Conversational Ai relevant for some industries more than others?
