IndiGo has unveiled its latest AI chatbot powered by groundbreaking GPT-4 technology, 6Eskai. developed in-house by IndiGo's digital team in collaboration with Microsoft. 6Eskai efficiently addresses customer queries in 10 different languages and introduces a first-of-its-kind platform for booking tickets across the airline's entire network. 

Early results from the soft launch reveal a remarkable 75 per cent reduction in customer service agent workload. Beyond query resolution, 6Eskai simplifies the booking process through natural language conversations, providing customers with a seamless end-to-end booking journey. 

Boasting an impressive 1.7 trillion parameters, the AI bot can adeptly answer a diverse range of commonly asked questions. IndiGo's team of data scientists extensively researched generative pretrained transformers (GPT) and used prompt engineering to programme the bot, ensuring it mimics human behaviour, responds to emotions, and even injects humour into interactions for a more engaging customer experience.
