Today, we're proud to announce that we have partnered with Amazon to bring the power of our Multilingual NLU engines (powered with our Synthetic Training Data) to Amazon Connect. As a first step, we’ve set up two new services -Instant LexBot and LexBot Booster- available on the AWS Marketplace, with our Custom LexBot projects service also available on demand.
When we talk about the usefulness of chatbots, we sometimes look at it as a black or white matter. Yet, the issue is not whether chatbots are useful or not, it’s rather how useful they are, and whether it is worth keeping them.

Do you know Amazon Connect? It’s a new platform created by Amazon —and built on AWS— that allows you to have your own Contact Center in the cloud, without having to get all the infrastructure that usual contact centers need.

As we saw, one of the problems was related to expectations: chatbots were expected to be a magic wand that would solve everything. Yet, this doesn’t mean chatbots are not extremely useful when applied in the right environments and with the right goals in mind. We’ll present some cases of useful chatbots in the next weeks.
The company CB Insights has recently published a document named “Lessons From The Failed Chatbot Revolution”. This ominous title reveals a hard truth: chatbots have not been the revolution we expected.
