Why context is important for chatbots
Bots are inherently stateless, and conversations between people can differ greatly based on their relationship and how much they know about each other. Because of this, chatbot developers struggle with how to keep track of different variables while maintaining the context and natural flow of a conversation. This is further complicated by the fact that data is created everywhere – including by your users, your company, and your bots – and it varies in importance, utility, and lifespan.
Effective context management is important because it allows bots to interact with users in a way that is easier, quicker, and more helpful – and less robotic and scripted. Contextual data helps users complete tasks faster and allows you to create more natural, human-like back and forth conversations. It can even be used to personalize your bot’s message and sales pitch – helping you sell more effectively.
Kore.ai allows you to capture and reuse contextual data for a large variety of scenarios, so you can create more complex use cases and redefine the enterprise customer experience.
Context Management at the Framework Level
Kore.ai allows you to manage data and contextual details at the framework level – data that can come from user inputs, API responses, sessions, and more – with little coding required. This allows you to create context-aware bots that can follow conversation history, harvest and harness information from 3rd-party systems, and accurately predict and populate the appropriate task or response.
When you first create tasks, you can access session variables provides by our platform, or custom variables that you define, as well as the context that defines the scope of the variable.
This allows you to store and retrieve data that can be used for a variety of things, such as personalized greetings, determining where prior conversations left off, or pre-filling order details.
Developers can determine how long these variables are stored and accessible by your bots – so you can create more intuitive conversations with users on your terms.
Humans tend to switch back and forth between intents. To facilitate this, our platform allows developers to determine the conditions that must be met to enable or disable context switches, and can add conditional exceptions between tasks with the ability to pass contextual data between them.
Our platform handles virtually all complex and diverse content switching scenarios in an effective and efficient manner.

Unparalleled Flexibility With Multiple Context Types
Create bots that can remember user inputs and answers – and that can automatically modify their behavior based on sentiment and context. Connect to your backend business systems to get and store the data you need – data that is otherwise often static, contained within a single location, and rarely remembered in context. Our platform allows you to create dynamic conversational experiences with the ability to customize, categorize, and apply contextual information as you see fit.
Custom Code Logic
Manipulate API responses, promote additional data to the user context, and pull data from the user context with support for custom code logic. This allows you to seamlessly extend the existing functionality of our platform and create advanced, custom conversational experiences that are driven by virtually any form of context.
