> Do Your Banking with a Chatbot

People in India can now open an account with a bank that’s only accessible via mobile devices. Called Digibank, it’s staffed by chatbots intelligent enough to answer thousands of questions submitted via chat.

The machine-learning-based technology is a product of Kasisto, a New York startup that spun out of the company that created Apple’s Siri assistant. Kasisto trained its KAI artificial-intelligence platform with millions of questions asked by customers during their banking experiences.

> Helpchat Now Doesn’t Have a Chat Anymore

Helpchat also reportedly fired all of its chat team (which according to unconfirmed reports includes 150 individuals, given three month’s worth of pay in advance). The move is completely opposite of the general start-up trends not just in India but globally.
...
Helpchat which claims to be India’s highest rated personal assistant app follows its second share of firing with this round after firing 112 employees last October.

> How a bunch of Indian startups have taken an early lead in chatbots

While [Sachin] Jaiswal [cofounder of Niki.ai] might be content with one chatbot, others want multiple bots. Aarti Gill is one of them. The cofounder of FitCircle, a chat-based health and fitness platform, boasts 32,000 bot users. Gill, who launched her first bot in November last year, now has five of them, each performing a different task. If one helps users with personalised workouts in yoga and for weight loss, another focuses on diet and nutrition advice, with expert intervention wherever required.

> India is primed for the chatbot revolution

While those in the Western world were first exposed to the Internet through web pages on the desktop, Indians came online through WhatsApp. Today, if you want to stay in touch with your family and friends, you need WhatsApp. The phrase “WhatsApp me” has replaced the phrase “call me” or “message me” for millions of Indians. The welcoming green interface, with its ubiquitous “Type a message” bar at the bottom is our home on the Internet. That innocuous radio ad made me realize that India is ready for the chatbot revolution.
