Knowledge-able

Playabl agents tap into your knowledge base to become experts, to provide useful information to users immediately, walk them through complicated processes, and teach them about products.

Intelligent

Playabl agents have true cognitive capabilities that surpass today’s simple stimulus-response bots and dialog trees. They can respond with a number of different possible answers, able to answer the same question differently based on context, history and goals/profile of the user.

Social and Proactive

Our agents use social reasoning to decide what actions to take and how to best respond to the user. They can proactively drive conversations through their own goals and intents, asking their own questions to deeply understand what users want.

Lifelike

Playabl agents demonstrate personality, emotion, social awareness and empathy, creating a more lifelike experience. They can represent your brand’s persona with engaging wit, and even portray an inner life of their own.
