One of Poste Italiane's main touchpoints through which it could offer assistance to its customers was the virtual assistant 'Poste'. This powerful tool required considerable human effort from Poste Italiane in order to be maintained: the learning process on the phrases not understood by the virtual assistant was completely manual and many of these were not even analysed due to the huge amount of data coming from different channels on which the chatbot was installed.
The most interesting projects in the field of Natural Language Processing are those with a large amount of content and a lot of interaction with end customers: Poste Italiane was a perfect case for us because of these characteristics. An abundance of data is usually positive in the world of artificial intelligence, but only if it is structured in the right way and monitored efficiently. This project had precisely the objective of working on these two aspects, creating an incredible mixture of Ai and people by exploiting what in jargon is called 'human-in-the-loop'.
Among Poste Italiane's values, customer satisfaction and innovation are two cornerstones for offering an effective and efficient customer service. For this reason, Poste Italiane chose to work with Indigo.ai to ensure that its virtual assistant "Poste" would achieve the best possible performance, automating the learning process through the use of Indigo.ai's proprietary platform while reducing the human effort of managing and maintaining the chatbot.
