Intercom Unveils Fin, a Breakthrough GPT-4 AI-based Customer Service Bot

Intercom | March 15, 2023

On March, 14, 2023, Intercom, a customer communication and support solutions provider, has introduced Fin, a new AI-powered customer service bot. Fin, according to the company, is the market's only AI-powered, full-service customer support solution powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology and Intercom’s proprietary machine learning technology. Fin provides accurate and trustworthy responses to customer inquiries, saving time for both customers and support teams. Fin does not require initial setup or training, unlike most bots that require responses to be curated manually by a human, it can learn everything it needs from a company's existing support articles. The bot has built-in safeguards to improve accuracy and reduce the possibility of hallucinations, which are made-up or inaccurate content. It also avoids giving misleading answers or responding about off-brand topics. Fin can hold full support conversations with customers, comprehend complex queries, ask clarifying questions, and explain complex subjects clearly and in a human-like tone. If a query is too difficult for the bot to handle, it can disambiguate it and seamlessly forward it to human support agents. Intercom has been developing Fin with OpenAI's GPT-4 technology, building on the success of previous GPT releases. The company has seen significant improvements in accuracy, as well as a reduction in the number of hallucinations, and is now eager to begin testing Fin with customers to see how it performs in the real world. Fin is part of Intercom's commitment to bringing the most advanced AI and automation to customer service teams. GPT systems have already been used by the company across its platform, including recently released features in the Intercom Inbox and Articles products. These features, which first became available in January, are now available to all customers. Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Intercom, Des Traynor, said, "We built and launched great features for support agents using OpenAI's previous GPT-3.5 release and have been working on GPT-4 through early testing to develop a trustworthy, customer-facing support bot." He also said, "We've seen significant accuracy improvements with GPT-4 that reduced the so-called hallucinations and we're excited to now start testing Fin with customers and see how well it performs in the real world." (Source – CISION PR Newswire) Fin is expected to be available in beta soon, and customers interested in joining the waitlist can do so on Intercom's website. About Intercom Intercom is a customer service platform that allows businesses to provide fast support and personalized experiences to their customers. It is an AI-powered, automation-first platform used by over 25,000 global organizations, including Amazon and Microsoft, to send over 500 million messages per month and interact with over 600 million monthly active users.

Software AG launches webMethods.io ChatGPT API Connector to leverage Generative AI in core business systems

Software AG | March 20, 2023

Software AG has launched a new ChatGPT API Connector for its webMethods.io integration platform. This will allow companies to integrate OpenAI’s new generative AI tool into their business processes to enhance a number of functions, including customer services. Any company with multi-stage or customer-relevant processes — such as the stages in a retailer's product fulfillment and delivery cycle — can use ChatGPT to help send out updates. Companies in industries from retail to banking to logistics can rapidly decrease the time taken to deliver fully personalized updates to explain any delays or problems. For example, manufacturers are finding that the digital experience is now a priority for partners and customers, as they demand faster and more efficient access to products and services. Even when data and systems are connected, personalization is often limited to the customer’s name and order details. Now ChatGPT brings in a greater understanding of the status of a process and the ability to automatically generate personalized updates — in a hybrid human/machine approach — to be more empathetic than standard responses. “ChatGPT has become a very hot topic, and businesses are looking at how they can make the most of it,” said Dr. Stefan Sigg, chief product officer at Software AG. “While there are seemingly endless possibilities, we’re happy to bring some very practical options to life right away. Companies that can move from generic communication to genuinely personalized messages will find that they can deliver a higher level of service to their customers. At the same time, we have seen over the last year or two rapid acceleration in the levels of technical debt, the management of which can be helped with ChatGPT.” Generative AI can support digital transformation initiatives and tackle the technical debt left in its wake. Recent Software AG research found that companies, on average, are spending 21% of their IT budgets on managing technical debt. The same technical resources needed for clearing technical debt are needed for building digital transformation initiatives. By identifying where ChatGPT can contribute to tasks like legacy code conversion or automation of processes, companies can free up valuable developer time for the most productive, highest-value projects. Generative AI can help with these mission-critical efforts. All of these functions work best in a hybrid approach of people and technology, but ChatGPT significantly speeds up the time and resources needed. “Companies are constantly looking for ways to differentiate themselves, especially in an era of continual disruption,” Sigg said. “Of course, the possibilities of ChatGPT extend way beyond these initial use cases. The most important thing is that there is a straightforward way for companies to get started. We’ve launched this new API Connector for webMethods.io so that organizations can begin to use generative AI without having to spend lots of time and resources developing the integrations for it.” About Software AG Software AG simplifies the connected world. Founded in 1969, it helps deliver the experiences that employees, partners and customers now expect. Its technology creates the digital backbone that integrates applications, devices, data and clouds; empowers streamlined processes; and connects “things” like sensors, devices and machines. It helps 10,000+ organizations to become a truly connected enterprise and make smarter decisions, faster. The company has more than 5,000 employees across more than 70 countries and annual revenue of over €950 million.
