What’s a Chatbot?

A chatbot is a software application that simulates live conversation through the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning. You’ve likely chatted with these bots on numerous websites, instead thinking you were talking to a person.

“Ask Awesome” chatbot strengths:

  • The ability to learn. The more questions we ask, the more he’ll know.
  • Instant answers, saving you time
  • Consistent answers
  • Available 24/7…long after offices have closed for the day
  • “Ask Awesome” is also polite.

How do I use Ask Awesome?

Beginning last week, “Ask Awesome” was made available for your questions on the Tennessee Tech Admissions, Registrar, Financial Aid, & ITS websites. As the launch progresses, you’ll also see “Ask Awesome” appear on the Tennessee Tech Academics, Bursar, & Student Life websites. Just look for the “Questions? Ask Awesome” button in the bottom-left.

We’re excited for you to get to know our new chatbot and interact with him. We would also be glad to hear any feedback at MakeITBetter@tntech.edu.
