Why are open text chatbots so unreliable?
By Jude Tan | Dec 27, 2022
An open text chatbot is a type of chatbot that can process and respond to a wide range of inputs, rather than being limited to a specific set of predetermined inputs. These chatbots are designed to be able to understand and respond to natural language inputs, such as free-form text or speech, in a way that is similar to how a human would.
There are several reasons why open text chatbots can perform poorly. One reason is that it can be difficult for these chatbots to accurately understand and interpret the intent behind a given input. Natural language is highly contextual and can be difficult for a machine to parse, especially when the input is ambiguous or contains errors. Additionally, open text chatbots may not have access to all of the information that is needed to accurately respond to a given input, which can lead to incomplete or inaccurate responses.
Another reason why open text chatbots may perform poorly is that they can be difficult to train and maintain. These chatbots require large amounts of high-quality training data in order to learn how to accurately process and respond to inputs, and this data must be regularly updated and maintained to ensure that the chatbot remains accurate and up to date. Additionally, open text chatbots may be more prone to making errors or behaving in unexpected ways due to the complexity of natural language processing.
In summary, open text chatbots can be challenging to build and maintain due to the complexity of natural language processing and the need for large amounts of high-quality training data. As a result, these chatbots may perform poorly compared to other types of chatbots that are designed to handle more structured or limited sets of inputs.

Bots are great - but only if they understand you

Chatbots have come a long way in delivering value to organizations. However, at the end of the day, bots still need to understand how humans communicate, and to be able to discern the intent-object within a statement, to be truly effective, as was the case in a recent NTU study on Counselling Chatbots.
