How does AutoChat handle unusual questions? 

Have you ever wondered how AI can handle those oddball questions that seem to come out of nowhere? At AutoChat, we recognize the significance of providing accurate and contextually appropriate answers.  

With over a decade of experience in AI and deep insights into the automotive industry, AutoChat continuously refines its algorithms to tackle unexpected questions with precision. 

 In this article, you will discover how AutoChat tailors its responses to fit your business needs, handles unanswerable questions gracefully, and prevents learning from irrelevant conversations. 

Customising AutoChat to your business 

Ensuring that AutoChat fits seamlessly into your business operations is a priority. Our implementation process is designed to be both comprehensive and efficient, accommodating the unique needs of each client. AutoChat can be tailored to match your brand’s tone and style, ensuring that customers receive responses consistent with your human customer service team. This way, AutoChat becomes a natural extension of your customer service operations, providing a seamless and cohesive experience for your clients. 

Implementation phase overview 

The implementation phase usually spans 2-3 weeks, depending on various factors. Here’s what to expect. You can find detailed steps in our article on the implementation phase

  1. Setting up your system: profit centres and API integration. 
    Creating an organization within the system, establishing profit centres, and configuring API access for inventory publishing, lead management systems and workshop planning systems. 
  1. Session and context setup to tailor AutoChat to your business 
    A half-day session where specific questions and scenarios from the business are gathered. By the end of this session, the AI’s context is tailored directly in the system, ensuring it’s ready to generate content automatically. 
  1. Going live 
    Integrating the generated code into the tag manager. 

Maintaining high-quality responses 

Quality management is critical to maintaining the integrity and reliability of AutoChat. Here’s how we ensure our AI delivers qualitative responses consistently: 

  • Context session  
    The initial context session with your business help us understand common scenarios and preferred responses. This foundation is continually enhanced with feedback from real interactions. 
  • Contextual boundaries 
    Our AI assistant stays within the context it’s been trained on. If a question falls outside this context, it will either not respond or provide a general redirection, maintaining focus on relevant topics. 
  • Feedback Loop 
    We regularly review and refine the AI’s responses based on feedback from your business and users. AutoChat will also proactively check answers for abnormalities. This involves regular monitoring and adjustments to improve accuracy and relevance. 

Handling unanswerable and unusual questions 

AutoChat is designed to handle a wide array of questions, but there are limits to what it can address: 

  • Unrelated queries 
    For harmless off-topic questions (e.g., “Who is the president?”), the AI might provide a simple answer. However, for questions entirely unrelated to your business (e.g., “How do I bake an apple pie?”), the AI will acknowledge the question’s irrelevance and redirect the user to appropriate sources. 
  • Training for edge cases 
    During initial training, we simulate various scenarios, including unusual questions, to prepare the chat. This training, combined with feedback from actual use, ensures the chat knows how to handle or appropriately deflect out-of-scope questions. 

Preventing learning from irrelevant conversations 

A critical aspect of maintaining AutoChat’s effectiveness is preventing it from learning incorrect or irrelevant information from out-of-context conversations. Here’s how we manage this: 

  • Contextual Integrity 
    We define strict boundaries for the chat learning context. It does not incorporate information from irrelevant or unusual queries into its core knowledge base. 
  • Manual Adjustments 
    Any contextual updates are manually reviewed and applied based on verified feedback and interactions. This ensures that only relevant, accurate information influences the chat’s learning process. 
  • User Feedback and Monitoring 
    Continuous monitoring of interactions and user feedback helps us identify and rectify any deviations promptly.
