Conversational Systems


Conversational systems are software systems that are designed to enable natural language interactions between users and computers. Conversational systems are often used in applications that require users to communicate with the system using their voice or natural language text, such as virtual assistants, chatbots, and dialogue systems.

Conversational systems are useful for a wide range of applications, as they allow users to interact with computers in a more natural and intuitive way. For example, conversational systems can be used to enable voice-controlled virtual assistants, which allow users to control devices and access information using their voice. Conversational systems can also be used to create chatbots and other dialogue systems, which can provide information, answer questions, and perform tasks in response to user input.
