EcoBot is the first chatbot trained to respond with information specific to your community, organization, or audience
EcoBot is trained on curated data about your community, organization, or industry, so it can respond with insights specific to your stakeholders.
Your stakeholders need access to many different types of data - EcoBot can make any of them easily accessible:

Chatbots are the easiest way for people to access information, because they understand and respond in natural language.
Whether someone asks a question or gives a command, the chatbot will respond with helpful information drawn from the specific data about your ecosystem or organization
Generic chatbots like ChatGPT are trained on massive datasets, making them very powerful but not great at responding to requests for context-specific, private, or real-time information.
EcoBots are trained on pre-curated, continually updated data about your ecosystem, so your users can ask it specific questions and get accurate, timely answers.
Users don't have to specify the context in their request - EcoBot will respond to generic questions with the relevant information
One big issue with off-the-shelf chatbots is the lack of control over how they will respond to user requests. EcoBot is trained to respond only using the data it's trained on, and to politely reject out-of-scope or inappropriate requests
You may not want to curate all of the different types of data for your ecosystem, so if a user asks about them, EcoBot is trained to respond with the next best recommendations.
The EcoBot lives as a corner chatbot on your existing website, so it's easy to access for your audience
EcoBot can be integrated into any number of additional websites, so it can reach your audience wherever they land

Okay, getting a custom AI chatbot is a bit more complicated than using it. But you're only 3 steps away from a custom EcoBot:
Provide basic information about the ecosystem you're in, the data you want to curate, and your target users
We collect, curate, and, clean data about your target ecosystem, and use it to train your custom EcoBot
When it's ready to go, EcoBot can be added to your existing website or set up as a new website
Since every EcoBot is trained on custom-curated data, EcoBot works for all types of ecosystems and organizations, from small business communities to internal corporate networks.
The data that is used to train your EcoBot is entirely up to you - it can provide insights on people, organizations, resources, events, initiatives, jobs, documents, etc.
The price of EcoBots vary based on the amount of data that you wish to curate with it and the volume of usage it receives. Schedule a demo to get a quote specifically for your use case
Unlike off-the-shelf models like ChatGPT or the new Microsoft Bing, EcoBots are trained to specific respond with information about your ecosystem - not about politics, world events, or other types of data. If asked an inappropriate request, or one that involves data that you did not choose to curate, EcoBot will politely decline to answer.
EcoBots take ~4-16 weeks from start to launch, depending almost entirely on the amount and types of data that you want to curate.
An EcoBot for a small Main Street community will take about 4 weeks, and an EcoBot for an entire state or industry might take 12-16 weeks to curate the data that is needed.
ChatGPT is an incredibly powerful tool, and the language model that it is built on is very similar to the one that EcoBots are built on. But ChatGPT is built to work for a massive audience, meaning it's not great at answering questions about specific ecosystems. EcoBot provides the same conversational interface as ChatGPT, but is trained on the data that is specific to your ecosystem or organization, so it can respond to these types of questions.
