Products with Personalities? My Interview with JD About Conversational AI (Jeff’s Asia Tech Class – Podcast 31)


In this class, I talk about my interview with He Xiaodong of JD. And about how chatbots are evolving into conversational AI. Plus the basics of AI economics.

CORRECTION. In this podcast, I mentioned that JD’s Smart Customer Service has the personality of a young woman. Xiaodong was actually referreing to Microsoft’s Xiaolce. My apologies.
