The report showed that customers wish to relate more to humans than Artificial Intelligence model of customer service like robots and chatbots.

“However, further research is needed to establish whether this trend owes to low levels of awareness about the value proportion of chat-bots, robots and other emerging data-driven Artificial Intelligence technologies,” the survey says.
