Browser plugin company Pouch has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot to ensure Brits don’t miss out on the Black Friday discounts.
The bot will be available for free on Facebook Messenger and will highlight the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals once they are live online.
The tech will further use ‘decision tree logic’ to understand the preferences of people. To access the chatbot, users can log in online. The page will be live from today (18 November) and will have a directory of all discount codes, where users will be able to search by brand, department and product to find the voucher code which suits them.
Jonny Plein, co-founder and chief financial officer Pouch said: “Pouch is known for innovation in the famously stagnant discount space, and we’ve created something truly amazing, if I may say so myself. Not only as a non-invasive browser extension is our primary aim to make discount voucher code website extinct, but we’ve created an AI chatbot that actually learns what people shop for and can serve the best deals and discounts accordingly.”
“The culture of Black Friday is to get the best deals quickly before they’re gone. That’s where our Facebook chatbot and the page come in.”
