Hyundai Card — a financial subsidiary of South Korea automotive manufacturer Hyundai and Kia Motors — has announced that it is partnering with IBM to drive its business transformation.

Through the partnership, Hyundai Card hopes to use cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology in a bid to improve the customer experience and expand their global financial services business.

Using IBM’s technology, Hyundai Card has introduced an AI-based chatbot called ‘Hyundai Card Buddy’ which answers common customer questions quickly and allows professionals to handle more complex customer service needs.

The chatbot uses natural language processing and machine learning technology from IBM which allows it to understand questions and enhance the customer experience.
