In order to simplify the information retrieval process for researchers, NHS Digital has partnered with Amelia (formerly IPsoft) to build the website’s first digital colleague. Built on the Amelia platform, but rebranded as NHS Digital’s Virtual Data Assistant (ViDA), the cognitive system is available from now until Oct. 19. Read this post to learn more.

Looking to simplify the information retrieval process for British researchers, the NHS recently partnered with Amelia to build a digital colleague for its website, NHS Digital, using Amelia as its cognitive platform.

“NHS Digital has been working in partnership with Amelia to produce a version of the tech company’s Amelia application,” NHS Program Manager David West writes in an op-ed published recently by Digital Health. “Amelia is an intelligent virtual agent (IVA) with an innovative cognitive platform that supports human-like engagements. Amelia can understand context beyond simply identifying select keywords, register and react to emotional states, and switch contexts during conversations. Amelia is also able to learn from human interactions in order to improve over time.”

Built on Amelia but rebranded as NHS Digital’s Virtual Data Assistant (ViDA), the solution is available from now until Oct. 19 to answer questions about medical research data and information. ViDA also answers questions regarding the Data Access Request Service (DARS), which allows researchers to view private, unpublished information. The application process is lengthy, includes a fee, and includes security protocols. ViDA guides users through their questions about the process and directs them to videos and written content.

The Intelligent Contact Center

Companies have spent decades implementing Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems in their call and customer care centers, but they've proven unable to keep up with customers' expectations.

In this white paper, we examine the benefits of an Intelligent Contact Center, where companies utilize Conversational AI-powered virtual agents to provide first-line resolution and support for customers, and augment human employees through AI and automation.

Download our paper to learn the benefits of this approach and why current IVR systems simply will not cut it in today’s hyper-paced digital landscape.
