Non-generative knowledge base AI

If for some reason you don't want your bot to use generative AI, but still want it to be able to easily retrieve FAQ answers, we've got you covered.
Setting up a non-generative knowledge base AI means that:
  • your bot will be able to understand multiple sentences from your users (i.e. natural language understanding from the AI engine is taking place)
  • but your bot will answer only the sentence that you defined as an answer (i.e. the bot answers are not generated)
Note that with non-generative knowledge base, you'll only be able to upload questions and answers only in the form of a .csv file.
