Abstract

The use of emotional intelligence in a conversation has a significant positive effect on customer satisfaction and can help resolve difficult conflicts. Many enterprises use virtual agents that automatically interact with customers across a variety of interaction channels. However, these agents have no emotional intelligence and cannot express themselves in an empathic manner. This demo demonstrates the use of emotional intelligence in a technical conversation with a customer. The agent is augmented with emotion sensing capabilities, which allow him to detect expressed emotions, and reply in an appropriate manner by expressing empathy, for example.
