Webinar | Setting up your business for Conversational AI Success | Recording now available

Conversational AI is no longer a complex, unattainable technology that only a few companies know how to implement. The increase of low-code and graphical interfaces in the market has pushed companies to start taking ownership and developing their own Conversational AI solutions in-house, instead of purely relying on technology providers. Therefore, the demand for insights into how to ensure that the right profiles are picked to guarantee team productivity and project scalability growths has surged.
As your company prepares to embark on this journey, how do you ensure that your organization is ready for Conversational AI Success? Join our webinar to find out!

In this session, Hans van Dam, founder of the Conversational Design Institute, and Joaquim Bargalló, Director of Customer Success at Artificial Solutions, will share their experience training and building teams to support the development and deployment of chatbots, and describe where companies should focus their attention to ensure the success of a project.

Other topics covered during this webinar are:

  • Picking the right business case and tool for your company.
  • Putting together your AI-Team: where to start, how to scale and what to look for when hiring?
  • Examples of successful deployments

New Teneo Platform Release

Teneo has been enhanced with additional features!

Version Flags feature, built on 6.0’s Versioning one, allows Teneo Studio to bring even more flexibility for solution development teams in the form of 2 parallel development streams

Version Flags enables project teams, whether familiar with version control systems or not, to simply and directly within Studio support advanced use cases such as

  • Parallel long running and short term development
  • Role / Task differentiation with dedicated teams for ongoing maintenance and improvement vs. larger feature implementation
  • Enabling teams to hotfix the published version of the solution even after the development of a feature within the solution has begun
  • Beginning work on iteration / release 2 whilst iteration / release 1 is undergoing acceptance workflow or pending Prod deployment

In addition to above, Teneo Studio now has a public API - covering the areas of versioning, publishing, tryout, test and global listeners

This Public API can be called from external systems / scripts and allows many new use cases, including:

  • In an Environment with complex, containerized or strict publish workflow an external system could pull a publication from Studio on demand, run some checks and feed this into the external workflow
  • Auto test could be automatically run every night and any degraded results be pushed to a ticketing system for resolution
  • An external testing tool or the end user frontend in development could be connected to the solution in active development via the Tryout API

Webinar | The Power of Bot Localization: Going Beyond Translation | Recording now available

Conversational design for rapid global rollouts, done in multiple languages is an enigma. Most conversational AI initiatives are unconnected and cant roll out new functionality or new markets instantly. We can.
With Teneo it is possible to have an original version in one language, and be able to launch another, typically reusing about 80% of the original build with no need to start from scratch. For example, the specific language structures and models for an English-speaking Company can be easily ported to operations in Poland, Sweden, Russia, or Japan.

In this webinar, we will discuss:
• Is translation the best option when adding another language to my solution?
• How and when should I localize solutions?
• How do I maximize the use of resources as the solution grows?

Webinar | Leveraging Conversational Data to boost your business | Recording now available

For better or worse, the COVID pandemic has pushed users and companies to engage primarily through digital channels. After a year that brought digital transformation to the top of the list for many businesses, users have grown accustomed to self-service solutions and expect companies to provide them services and support 24/7.
How can companies take advantage of this behavioural shift in users? Valuable customer data resides in these day-to-day conversations between users and self-service solutions. Conversational data provides insights into customer behaviour and sentiment in real-time. Not only can it help you recognise emerging trends faster, but it opens opportunities to engage with new and existing customers beyond the typical online surveys and focus groups.
Join us as we discover the value of conversational data with Tim Bartz, EMEA Presales Consultant at Artificial Solutions. He’ll be showing us:

  • The Teneo Platform’s features, including real-time access to conversational data both within the platform itself as well as via your existing BI tools like PowerBI and Tableau;
  • The breadth and depth of data available when customers are allowed to express themselves in natural, everyday language, and;
  • How to find new or unexpected trends with conversational data, especially in a post-COVID world

Webinar | How to improve your Teneo chatbot with E2E test automation | Recording now available!

Join Artificial Solutions and Botium in this webinar, where we will showcase the setup of a test automation pipeline for a Teneo based chatbot to continuously check conversation flows and NLP performance, and then take it even further by adding full End-to-End Testing.

Testing is a crucial enabler for the success of chatbots and virtual assistants. Doing it manually requires enormous time and effort. Automated testing will remain critical to ensure that bots actually do what their designers intended. Talking to a chatbot usually has no barriers, it runs without any restrictions.

Combining this with unpredictable user behavior, it becomes utmost difficult to verify the correctness of conversational AI. Training data and test sets are infinitely large. In fact, quantity plays a major role in quality assurance for bots, but makes it impossible to test manually.

The main questions to answer are “Why are bots failing?”, “What and how should you test?” and of course “How to automate*?*”.

Teneo 6 highlights

This release comes full of powerful changes that will differentiate Teneo further in the areas of team collaboration, solution maintainability, development productivity and enterprise strength.

The changes in this update will help project managers, developers, and other team members, know exactly what changes have been made, by whom, and when they took place, allowing for the restoration to previous versions if needed.

Here are some highlights of what this release brings:

Through the introduction of Match Requirements (that define the technology-specific requirements for when a trigger/transition matches) and Data Actions (that define atomic actions to take after the match has occurred), Teneo can now achieve fully-hybrid input matching and processing by combining these directly in the UI.

This is a step forward towards a more visual and choice-based development approach and is a feature that reduces the cognitive workload by removing concepts that are hard to explain. Even more important, it ensures greater efficiency and productivity of the solution development process.

It also makes it easier to develop, maintain, and enhance hybrid matching, allowing for swapping, enhancing, and changing match requirements and tech choices without affecting the flow design.

Teneo 6.0 brings users closer to a more guided approach, where the system suggests the next steps to follow, without limiting savvy users to follow their own path. Processes such as ‘building a flow’ have been revisited to support better task/responsibility separation and to allow flow sketching directly in Studio, without requiring a technical implementation.

These have been achieved due to the introduction of “TODO” prompts - these remind the user about what remains to get done for the flow to work. This allows the developer to create a flow skeleton as part of a separate scoping exercise without risking changing the functionality of the running solution. If a trigger is still TODO, it will not affect the rest of the solution.

Further changes alongside this work have given classes a dedicated area for management - separate from triggers - as well as the possibility to run cross-validation to determine the performance of classes within a solution.

Version support has been extended now to include every document within the solution - including Scripts, Integrations, Listeners, etc. - and an overall “ Solution Log ” has been included showing every change to every document within a given solution.

A Recycle Bin has been added to allow the retrieval of deleted documents. Combined with performance improvements, this allowed us to remove the 10-version limit on individual documents ensuring that edits can be safely made with the full support of the platform and knowing that there is the option to roll back if something goes wrong.

To aid debugging a solution, Try Out 1 has been given a new slimmed-down view in the main solution with an Advanced view, showing more detail and visual processing path for simpler and deeper debugging.

All code editors (TLML, TQL and Groovy) have been improved with better syntax support and some editing improvements around tabbing. Text fields have been improved with a spell checker that is aware of the language of the solution being edited.

Our Localization feature has been reworked to allow more control over which documents are included in branching from a master solution. This allows a fully working, testable, publishable Master solution and requires much less upfront thought required when using branching. Any solution can be branched, with no restrictions on how the Master solution is built. Dialogue Resources have also been rebuilt with this feature in mind to allow local solutions to be created from TDRs.

Date & Time support is now native to the Input Processing chain in the platform for Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish - with changes to the IPs and supporting objects in the lexical resources.

We have added 48 new languages , bringing the total supported language count of Teneo to 86. This ensures that Teneo remains ahead of the game in real-world language coverage.

With regards to Documentation , we have reworked and restructured it, so it is readily available and centralized on your own Teneo environment and Teneo Developers.

Authentication has been extended to support an external Identity Provider (IdP) via the industry-standard SAML 2 protocol, allowing clients to manage authentication via an external system whilst configuring the permissions authenticated users still within Teneo Manager. This lets Teneo support any kind of required authentication required (multi-factor, biometrics, single sign-on, password expiries.)

Lastly, major changes have been made in the Tech Stack for this release with a shift to Java 11 (to better support containerization - as well as gain from the other improvements over Java 8). Upgrades to the scripting language in solutions will now use Groovy 3 and all packages are now released as Red Hat as well as the previous Debian flavor.

Teneo 6.0 is available for new users that sign-up through Teneo Developers and for existing users upon request for an upgrade.
