Using AI to benefit students and staff at the University of Alabama
The Student Account Services department at the University of Alabama was inundated with calls and emails from students on a regular basis. There were so many calls that the phone system eventually failed.

Listen to this podcast interview with director of student account services Kristy Pritchett to learn how the new chatbot has already answered thousands of questions and become a trusted source of information on campus.
