AI: Our Only Weapon Against Climate Change?



Artificial Intelligence, more commonly referred to as simply AI, has been, since it’s early days, changing our lives in many ways. AI has become one of the greatest inventions of the human mind. When thinking of AI, we do not normally associate AI as being involved in helping farmers grow more crops to feed the exponentially growing population, or helping develop cancer treatment, or even keeping kids safe from trafficking and abuse by finding improper online activities. Instead we think of computers to phones, to self-driving cars and robots. However AI doesn’t just power the gadgets that we have grown so accustomed to in our daily lives, but it is increasingly being used to help solve impending social challenges.

One of these impending social issues is the quite literally hot topic – global warming. The challenges of global warming are growing by the day, as its impacts are becoming more severe and harder to manage. Melting ice caps, severe sever weather changes, extinction of species, are just a few of the consequences of the manmade climate change that is plaguing our world today. Despite widespread acceptance and awareness, the rate at which the world is embracing positive change is unfortunately not fast enough.

Fortunately there are many large companies that are setting an example by using AI to develop new ways in which to battle global warming. In fact, it seems as though AI is the only solution we have. It is helping us not only track and our present data, but also analyze our past data so that we can make informed decisions about the future. One such example is the use of AI to collect large amounts of data on land, animals, weather, ecosystems, etc… and organize it, so that scientists and governments can then determine what needs to be done, and the most cost effective ways to engage conservation methods.

We are quite surely seeing more and more AI initiatives being undertaken to help create a more eco-friendly world.

In order to reduce human influence on nature, increasing levels of human interference with natural processes are required”  (Harvard University)

Whatever the downfalls of AI may be, its ability to help us against destroying our planet is perhaps its most important trait – because as hard as it may be to accept, our planet is dying and AI can help us prevent that.

OUR AWESOME CHATBOT FEATURES

NMODES chatbots and conversational AI solutions come with a unique set of features.

Our goal is to make it easy for businesses to create and manage chatbots. The features we offer are important for successful implementation of a chatbot not only because they significantly improve its quality, but they also allow you to edit your chatbot in natural language, without any need to have technical knowledge or AI specialist in the team. 

1. Free AI Training 

Our chatbot solutions come with free AI training for life.

We will train your chatbot and continue to enhance it indefinitely.
It is our responsibility to ensure that your chatbot has the updated natural language processing capabilities. It is also our responsibility to guarantee that it understands not only common language but also language that is specific to your business, such as names of the products, terminology used in your industry, inventory list, and more. 

Your chatbot will be interacting with the customers all the time. We will enable it to learn from these interactions continuously and improve its language understanding and responses as a result of this learning.

2. Editing in natural language 

We realize that AI is a complex body of knowledge and one of your biggest concerns is that you are not familiar with it well enough. We made sure that you don’t need to be technically savvy to successfully manage a chatbot. Using our simple and friendly online interface you can control your chatbot in real time using common natural language. No technical knowledge is required.

At NMODES we continuously improve our AI capabilities. We use our AI not only to make the experience of your customers, conversing with your chatbot, better, but also to make your own experience, conversing with our platform, better.

Eventually the platform will be able to interact with you fully in natural language. We are not entirely there yet (it is an immense task). Still, we hold true to our promise that there is no need in being technically savvy to operate our platform even today. When the platform does not understand natural language our highly trained specialists are always ready to take over and provide support.


3. Real time connectivity 

Often there is a need for chatbot to access structured data (such as inventory database) to answer customer’s question. We made it easy for your chatbot to create external queries in real time and modify the responses accordingly. Your chatbot is able to decide in the middle of the conversation, based on the information it received from your database, how to respond and how to proceed with the conversation.

These are the most exciting among the features we created so that our customers have easy and enjoyable chatbot experiences. But there are other features available: conversational templates, dynamic AI Engines clustering, multiple widget skins and more! Let us know if want to see the full list of features.
