A. According to AITIA International, Inc. there are 3 main types of software product available in the market.

3 main images and applications of chatter robots :
1.) Chat-bot built into an Internet portal
2.) Virtual assistant built into an Information Terminal
3.) "Tutor" robot, avatar built into Internet or Intranet systems
1.) Chat-bot built into an Internet portal
In this case the chatbot, which is developed suitable for your marketing communication and business interests, communicates with the visitors of your Internet portal.The chatter robot is built according to the demands and style of your target audience. It informs your customers about up to date offers in an online interaction. The built in chatbot is also able to lead informal chat and smalltalk, and has a good "sense" of humor. Visitors can have a talk with it anytime, and amuse themselves perfectly seeing and reading its typical gags and jokes.
Business values also appear in this interaction, so it is indispensable to use a robust portal navigator function in order to find the right information. For example: in a situation, in which a visitor has already ended the smalltalk with the chatbot and wants some information about your enterprise or your products, all they have to do is type in "offers", and the chatbot guides them to the appropriate site within the enterprise portal.
With its personality tailored to your business image, and a communication engine with a good sense of humor, this chatbot is a unique mass medium in Hungary.
2.) Virtual assistant built into an Information Terminal
In this case, a nice lady appears on an Information Terminal, that is located either in the headquarters of your enterprise, or in a shopping center, or any other frequently visited area. She informs the customers about shops, traffic timetables, products, services, and special offers, etc. In practice, she is a virtual hostess to whom visitors can turn any time, she is always friendly and never gets tired.
This solution determines the image of your business in the 21th century and represents its technical preparedness. The nice virtual lady communicates with your visitors with the power of the living voice, always giving the proper answer to their questions.

3.) Tutor robot (avatar), integrated in Internet or Intranet based e-learning solutions
This is a modern, vanguard technology in education, realised with a software built specially for this end in view. A tutor chatbot (avatar), which is based on artificial intelligence technologies, gives virtual lectures to students within the confines of interactive communication and teaches how to use the related multimedia e-learning materials. Multilevel tests with time limitation and supervision are also available to gauge the preparedness of the students. Evaluation of completed tests is also possible, so the tutor can also gain information about the accomplishment of the participants.
