Oracle introduces AI-powered intelligent bots

JEDDAH, October 25, 2017

Oracle has announced a major update of Oracle Mobile Cloud, featuring artificial intelligence (AI)-powered intelligent chatbot capabilities. 
Expanding Oracle Cloud Platform’s leading mobile portfolio, the new capabilities offer organisations a multi-channel platform, deep analytics that can link key stakeholder experiences across bots, mobile applications and web, as well as simplified bot development features. 
Using this powerful portfolio, enterprises can better engage with customers and employees across today’s most popular messaging platforms, said a statement. 
In the rapidly expanding mobile economy, businesses are looking for smart and personalised ways to engage with customers via mobile devices. With an estimated 5 billion mobile phones used worldwide, Oracle is helping enterprises meet growing customer demand by being able to seamlessly build, integrate, and secure reliable mobile services.
“As user behavior has dramatically shifted to mobile and messaging platforms, it is critical enterprises evolve to support stakeholders’ preferred channels,” said Amit Zavery, senior vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Platform. “By using Oracle Mobile Cloud, businesses will be able to continue strengthening these relationships, even as users might be moving away from engaging on websites and traditional mobile applications to messaging channels.”  
Leveraging a powerful AI foundation comprising machine learning, cognitive and knowledge services, dialog and context, and deep learning, the updated Oracle Mobile Cloud enables enterprises to build applications that can automate more engaging conversations at scale, it said. 
For example, Oracle’s intelligent Bots use deep learning-based natural language understanding (NLU) to comprehend and determine intent of end-user conversations. It can then help companies process these conversations, integrate each with existing business application data, and automatically respond. 
Oracle has also made it simple for enterprises to develop bots with the low-code Bot Builder tool. This feature provides one place to design and train NLU models, design conversational dialog flows, and set up channel and enterprise data integration. The builder allows developers to test and deploy bots using an available lifecycle management capability. In addition, the suite also introduces powerful customer experience analytics to offer deep insights into mobile and bot adoption, usage and performance to troubleshoot and personalize engagement with the end user.
Oracle’s intelligent bots can support many of today’s most popular interaction channels including messaging clients such as Facebook Messenger, Kik, Skype, Slack, and digital voice assistants such as Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot and GoogleHome. Additionally, Oracle’s intelligent bots provide native and JavaScript SDK to extend mobile and web-based applications with chat and voice capabilities via Apple Siri, GoogleVoice or Microsoft Cortana. 
Additional features of the new Oracle Mobile Cloud Enterprise include:
• Enterprise integration that allows customers to deliver real value to end users with access to back end data, user identity and transactional systems
• Access to key insights allowing businesses to identify areas of friction, funnel traffic and analyze user paths
• Bots-to-human hand-offs creating seamless side-routing to humans or external systems with context transfer, and back to bot abilities as needed
• Completely integrated lifecycle management including development, testing, version control and integration with CI/CD
• Continuous evolution offering customers the ability to rapidly improve services as well as access updated AI engine and microservices
• Total flexibility for customers to select channels, dialog flow design, back end integration, model selection and business logic control
• Through Oracle Cloud, a complete solution at lower cost that decreases complexity and offers access to a broad range of leading SaaS, PaaS and IaaS services - TradeArabia News Service
