How it works
A customer has a question
When a customer contacts your business, Answer Bot steps in to help — scanning the text to understand what your customer needs. It will suggest relevant articles to address the issue at hand and works across various channels like web, mobile, and Slack, and even has an open API.
Answers are suggested
Answer Bot works in multiple languages* and uses its powerful deep learning model to find the most relevant articles. It suggests them to the customer while they wait for a response from a human agent.
A ticket is solved
The customer reviews the articles and if an answer is found, they can mark their question as answered. The ticket is now solved.
Or routed back to an agent
If a customer still needs help, their question would be answered as normal by an agent. Feedback is automatically collected to improve future suggestions.

Self-service resolution with Answer Bot
Powered by research and innovation
Answer Bot was created by a team of Zendesk data scientists and engineers using the latest machine learning and deep learning technology.
Deep learning is a sophisticated form of artificial intelligence inspired by the human brain. It recognizes speech, data, and specific patterns. Like humans, it uses that information to make connections and decide on the best action to take. But unlike humans, it can process trillions of pieces of information to see patterns we might miss.
No training required
Answer Bot is ready to start working on day one. It taps into all the customer interactions of companies who use Zendesk, and applies what it learns to your customers and content—even if you don’t have many of either. And because it learns as it goes, every suggestion it gives will be better than the last.
It’s all connected
Answer Bot was born on cutting-edge, open source technologies and services. Its power comes from TensorFlow and Zendesk’s own research. Our machine learning products are already making a difference for thousands of companies around the world.
Answer Bot works exclusively with Zendesk Guide.
