The State Bank of India is another interesting case: The Silicon Valley-based startup Payjo has launched an Intelligent Assistant for SBI, one of the world’s largest banks with 420 million customers. SBI’s Intelligent Assistant or SIA, an AI-powered chat & voice assistant, answers customer inquiries instantly and helps customers with everyday banking tasks. SIA is set up to handle nearly 10,000 inquiries per second or 864 million per day – close to 20% of Google’s worldwide traffic. SIA continuously learns with each interaction and gets better over time. Currently, it can answer inquiries on banking products and services and will soon be able to process financial transactions in many Indian regional languages across multiple customer channels in both voice and text format.
