Your Mondays Just Got Better

Mondays have a bad reputation. They are linked to increases in stress and anxiety, and many other health issues. After enjoying two days off, relaxing, and disconnecting from your weekly tasks and worries, Mondays’ energy may seem brutal and cannot be easily ignored. It starts with floating notifications on your mobile, then there are briefs, meetings, project reminders, assignments, and yes, more meetings. Mondays are tough, indeed, and there’s a nearly global consensus on that. Perhaps, one of the best things about Monday is that it is the most common day for bank holidays.

But what if there is a way out of the stress bubble? What if you could get the support you need to carry out all the tasks that may take you hours and those repetitive activities you could skip and focus on more important matters? What if we could make your Mondays friendlier?

In many forms, AI is already part of our lives

Artificial Intelligence (AI) assistants are becoming popular and are used everywhere, from smartphones to educational institutions and medical organisations. They are already part of our lives, and they can perform many of the same duties human assistants do, like reading text, processing emails, taking dictation, scheduling, and making calls. However, they can be programmed to do more complex things. Also, they do not need a break, and you can take them anywhere.

AI assistants can be tailored on your needs and behaviour

What is an AI assistant? It is a software program that uses technologies like Natural Language Processing (NLP) to follow voice and text commands, and it’s often based on cloud, meaning that it can be accessed from anywhere if you have an internet connection. You can use it daily by simply connecting it to your smartphone or other devices.

An AI assistant can not only be integrated into your daily life, but it can be personalised to answer your demands and adapt to your behaviour. They rely on self-teaching algorithms and learn your voice tones, preferences, and anticipate your needs.

 Whether you want a standard AI secretary to take notes during your weekly meetings, transcribe, make summaries, or your own master Yoda to guide you through ‘the force field’, we know the way to make it happen.

80% of businesses worldwide are already taking advantage of technology advancement and use a chatbot or a virtual assistant to connect and engage with customers.

How we build your own AI assistant

To create your own AI assistant, we need to follow a few general steps that help us create a profile and offer you a customised and friendly model.

The first step is to define your requirements. We determine what you want your AI assistant to do. You may consider tasks like scheduling appointments or calls, answering questions, providing reminders, sending emails, or performing specific functions.

Based on your needs, we will build a custom system using machine learning frameworks like OpenAI and Longchain. We research and select the solution or the platform that best suits your needs.

The next step is to design the conversational flow. We plan the interaction flow between the user and the AI assistant, define the types of user inputs and the corresponding assistant responses, and consider the different scenarios and even peculiar cases that may arise during the conversation.

Collecting and labelling training data is essential because we need to teach the AI assistant to understand and respond accurately. To achieve this goal, we gather a dataset of user inputs and the desired responses and label the data to provide the assistant with examples of correct behaviour.

Based on the previous process, our team uses machine learning techniques to train your AI model. The specific training stage will depend on the platform or framework we choose. It may involve training a Natural Language Processing (NLP) model, a chatbot, or a combination of techniques.

Now, it is time to implement the AI assistant by developing the software infrastructure to integrate the trained AI model into your desired platform or application. It could involve writing code, using APIs provided by the chosen platform or configuring a chatbot framework.

Before moving on, we must extensively test your AI assistant to identify and fix any issues or bugs. We continuously refine and improve its responses based on user feedback and real-world usage.

Once you are happy with the performance recorded during the previous stage, we deploy your AI assistant to the desired platform and make it available to you and/or other users. We monitor its performance and collect your feedback for ongoing improvements.

Top benefits you may enjoy using your AI assistant

There are numerous benefits to individuals and businesses that can be enjoyed by choosing a customised AI assistant.  

 Here are the most common:

  • Increased productivity: automating and handling various tasks simultaneously - managing emails and calendars, booking appointments, setting reminders, and searching for information, without losing focus or efficiency - and saving time and enabling individuals to focus on more critical and complex work.
  • Enhanced efficiency: performing activities quickly and accurately, often outperforming humans in repetitive or data-intensive activities, analysing large datasets, and providing data-driven insights, which can improve efficiency in decision-making and operations.
  • 24/7 availability: unlike humans, AI assistants are available round the clock and available to support you, answer questions, and perform duties at any time, even outside regular working hours.
  • Personalised assistance and voice command: learning from user interactions and preferences, understanding individual needs, behaviours, which allow AI assistants to deliver a more personalised and customised experience; and all the functions can be available hands-free, activated, and controlled through voice commands.
  • Improved accuracy and consistency: minimising errors and ensuring consistency in their assignments; performing calculations, analysing data, and executing actions with high accuracy, reducing the likelihood of human error and inconsistencies.
  • Language translation and communication support: helping bridge language barriers by providing real-time translation services, facilitating communication and collaboration with individuals who speak different languages.
  • Continuous learning and improvement: continuous learning from user interactions, adapting to changing preferences, and improving their performance over time. 
  • Integration with other systems and devices: integrating with various software applications, devices, and services, allowing seamless interaction and coordination across different platforms. This integration enhances the AI assistant’s functionality and expands its capabilities.

Building a sophisticated AI assistant requires advanced knowledge in the areas of NLP, Machine Learning (ML), and software development. Our result-driven team has extensive know-how, technical expertise, and plenty of creativity to design an efficient bespoke AI model and ensure your working days will be brighter.

And wherever your Monday will take you, may the force be with you.
