Data suggests chatbots are falling short, but companies are still seeing benefits
A lot has changed since Tay. The advent of AI technology like ChatGPT has dramatically improved the chatbot experience, showing that chatbots are not necessarily destined to have disappointing back-and-forth conversations.
