A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11886509B2) discloses a computer-implemented method and system for enhancing interactions between a party and an automated prompt system. The method involves generating interaction probabilities based on metadata associated with the interaction and utilizing a trained multi-label predictive model. These interaction probabilities are linked to prompt question data objects, which are generated by clustering historical question data objects and identifying representative prompt questions. The system then selects prompt questions based on interaction probability thresholds and provides them to the party during the interaction, improving the efficiency and relevance of the prompts provided.

Furthermore, the system can handle various types of interactions, such as audio call sessions or chat sessions, and can be implemented using technologies like interactive voice response systems or chatbot systems. The method and system aim to optimize the prompt selection process by leveraging historical data and predictive models, ultimately enhancing the user experience during interactions with automated systems. By efficiently identifying and providing relevant prompt questions based on interaction probabilities, the technology described in the patent can streamline interactions and improve the overall effectiveness of automated prompt systems in various scenarios.
