Advanced Dialog Manager Empowers More Flexible Conversations

People find it frustrating to engage with chatbots, owing to their reliance on rigid, manually coded up decision trees for managing dialog.

To offer a user-friendly experience, context switching is a crucial skill. Rulai’s third-level dialog manager technology is able to handle context switching with our proprietary Mixed Initiatives and Tasks Intelligence System (MITIS™) technology, by enabling chatbots to do more than following a single thread.

Rulai chatbot can also detect and respond to multiple intents with the result of users having a more natural interactive experience.
