“Kasisto’s major contribution is its conversational AI platform, KAI, which banks can use to build their own chatbots and virtual assistants. It’s rooted in AI reasoning and natural-language understanding and generation, which means it can handle sophisticated questions about finance management that other bank customer-service digital assistants — Bank of America’s Erica, for example — can’t.
Kasisto has so far backboned AI assistants for several prominent banking institutions (including the UAE-based digital bank Liv., DBS Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and TD). The bank’s KAI-based bot walks customers through how to make international transfers, block credit card charges and transfer you to human help when the bot hits a wall.”
