Natural Language Understanding

Natural language understanding empowers users to interact with systems and devices in their own words without being limited by a fixed set of phrases.

In contrast to traditional speech recognition system that can recognize a limited set of phrases; natural language understanding understands natural speech due to its ability to recognize a wider variety of responses.

Natural language understanding empowers today’s popular technologies including IVR, chatbot and virtual assistant.

When integrated in IVR systems, natural language understanding transforms these systems into speech-enabled interaction channels.  Thus, callers can easily reach the right self-service by using their own words instead of dealing with touch-tone navigation.

In solutions like virtual assistants and chatbots; natural language understanding acts as a conversation tool by allowing a natural dialog between users and the devices.

Natural language understanding:

  • enables smarter applications
  • increases automation
  • improves self-service quality
  • enhances customer experience
