Kasisto, a subsidiary of SRI International (the maker of Siri), is hoping their conversational AI bots will be the 'Ask Me Anything' of the finance world. The company recently added two new personal finance chat bots: KAI and MyKAI. These additions follow chatbot finance app Abe and millennial money-managing app Penny in this area.
KAI is described as "a conversational AI platform that's actually intelligent," that uses industry-specific knowledge with a multi-channel reach so you can access the technology on mobile devices, messaging platforms and wearables. The virtual assistant and chat bot mix takes on banking with MyKAI, which is designed to help users manage funds, track expenses, make payments and more. It also works from a variety of messenger apps, including Facebook Messenger, Slack or SMS texting.
