AI Assistants Are Task-Oriented, Not Conversational

AI assistants are designed to get things done for the user. Specifically, they connect with the website they're integrated with to allow the user to execute actions on the website through text. For example, a user might ask the AI assistant on Airbnb to book a reservation for them, or ask the AI assistant on Google Drive to move a set of files to a different folder.

An AI assistant

AI assistants always try to map user input to the actions and functionality supported by the website they're installed on. On the other hand, the chatbots you see on most sites prioritize free-flowing conversations and interactions, but don't actually complete tasks for users.

Creating a Rehance Account

Setting up Actions

Actions are the functions that your website can perform in response to user requests. For example, if your website involves managing documents or files, you might want to create an action that allows users to move files. For more information on how to set up actions, see the Actions documentation.

Defining Context

Context is the information that the AI assistant uses to understand user requests and map them to the appropriate actions. For example, if your website involves managing documents or files, you might want to define context around the current list of files owned by the user. For more information on how to define context, see the Context documentation.
