Problem Statement

An E-Commerce company named "A" built a chatbot that can simulate conversation with users to offer product recommendations in order to boost up the conversion rate and also improve customer experience. This allows connecting with potential customers, automating customer engagement and interactions. However, after the chatbot was deployed, there were some problems that confused it and led to inefficient operations. As a result, those unresolved questions were forwarded directly to customer service agents. For the purpose to keep evolving quality of chatbot, the development team decided to analyze all the conversations and they need an algorithm to help them detect automatically which one frustrates customers.
