Course content
Naturally spoken language is our most common interaction method. In the past, human-machine-interaction was a factor of sci-fi movies – today this next step of how we interact with computers is here. At the Deutsche Bahn Group, several projects use the potential of voice in human-machine-interactions. Chatbots reduce loads on hotlines and voice assistant plugins help customers with ticket orders. Wearable devices allow data input in areas, where the hands of the employees need to be free. A talking, multi-language robotic head and digital avatar provide new ways of customer and employee services.
