AI Conversation App Development Challenges: Experience Insights by Biz4Group

September, 2023 update on AI conversation app led the globe become part of it. You guessed it right! ChatGPT's new voice and image capabilities offered a new interface, allowing all of us to have a voice conversation with ChatGPT.

So, now when you are travelling, and there is a sudden curiosity about what’s interesting about the place, your AI conversation partner, i.e. ChatGPT has got you covered. You can snap a picture of the landmark, and have a live conversation about it.

Not only this, when you are home, you can snap a picture of your fridge, and pantry, and literally figure out what’s for dinner (by asking follow up questions on recipe, etc.)

However, any development is a result of challenges that a team comes across, and brainstorm relevant solutions against them. We are going to delve into the same details, wherein we would also share how our team, at Biz4Group (Generative AI development Company) resolved the challenges pertaining to the development of AI Conversation Partner app, AI Wizard.

What is an AI Conversation App?

An AI conversation app or an enterprise AI chatbot solution, is a software application, meant to facilitate human-like conversations. It utilizes artificial intelligence. Besides, it leverages NLP, and machine learning algorithms in a way that mimics human communication. Such apps are used in various contexts, like customer service, virtual assistants, mental health support, etc.

AI Conversation App Development Challenges


Here are some common challenges that one may face while the development of custom AI Avatar conversation app:

1. Natural Language Processing & Understanding

  • Challenge - What do you think can be the basic difficulty in developing an effective NLP algorithm?

    It is because of the human language nuances like slang, idioms, and context. Further, layers of difficulty are added due to semantics, syntax, and the intent behind user inputs added.

  • Solution – There are deep learning models, like transformers that capture intricate language patterns. Whereas context-aware models enhance understanding with the help of conversational history. Besides, there are pre-trained language models like GPT that are trained on vast datasets. Such models provide a strong foundation for precise language comprehension.

2. Contextual Understanding and Continuity

  • Challenge - The challenge is to ensure that the AI can understand the context while maintaining the conversation continuity. Besides, AI needs to remember previous interactions, grasp context, and respond appropriately, so as to properly follow-up on queries.

  • Solution – There are advanced techniques like context-aware models, and conversation history tracking that very well address these issues. In order to create coherent conversations, context-aware models utilize past interactions to deliver current responses. Besides, there are machine learning algorithms that enable AI to anticipate user needs, in order to perform context prediction.

3. Continuous Learning and Improvement

  • Challenge – Yet another challenge is to keep AI conversation apps updated, with new information. Not only this, continuously improving their responses is again imperative. It goes without saying that without appropriate updates, AI can become outdated, and unable to handle advanced user queries.

  • Solution – In order to overcome such challenges, implementing continuous learning pipelines is one of the solutions. What happens is that this method automatically incorporates new data from user interactions, into the model’s training process.

    Besides, regular update is the other way to keep AI current and relevant. Moreover, A/B testing new features can optimize the performance too.


4. Scalability and Performance

  • Challenge – With an increasing user base, maintaining performance and scalability becomes a challenge. Therefore, an AI conversation app must be capable enough to handle the increased traffic, manage concurrent user interactions, along with ensuring quick response time.

  • Solution – So, in order to overcome this challenge, first of all implementing a scalable cloud infrastructure is required, so that dynamic resource allocation can take place, based on the demand while ensuring a consistent performance.Secondly, to prevent overload, and reduce latency, the technique of load balancing is important, so that it can distribute user requests across multiple servers.

5. Integration with Other Systems

  • Challenge – It generally happens that due to varying architecture, and data formats, ensuring integration with existing systems becomes a complex thing to implement. And due to this hurdle, AI conversation apps find it difficult to access and process relevant information in real-time.

  • Solution – So, in order to overcome this problem, developers should utilize APIs to enable smooth communication between the AI conversation app, and other software platforms like CRM and ERP.

    Further, it is suggested that the developers should implement webhooks for real-time data updates. Additionally, it is suggested that the app design should be modular enough, for easy adaptation to different systems, and protocols.

    After implementing these methods, developers can ensure smooth data exchange and operational efficiency.

Challenges and Solutions Implemented by Biz4Group


While the development of AI conversation partner, AI Wizard, our experts at Biz4zGroup (a Chatbot Development Company) developers too faced various challenges, for which they have adopted relevant and seamless solutions, which are mentioned below:

User Experience Challenges:

Challenge Solution


Implementation of highly customized experience for every user was one of the challenges, as it calls for smart data processing algorithms.

User Engagement:

Besides, maintenance of active participation of users, along with providing quality content was also important.

Behavioral Data:

So, our team collected and analyzed data on user interactions. For example, conversation history, FAQs, and response times.

The team preferred to implement features, to improvise the product, along with continuously updating the application.


Development and Maintenance Challenges:

Challenge Solution

Continuous Learning:

The parameters of the multiple interactions have to be continuously learned, in order for the AI to improve.

This entails continual data acquisition, and model retraining, processes that can be computationally expensive.

Cross-platform Compatibility:

An extensive amount of development and testing are needed, to achieve a similar experience between devices, and platforms (iOS, Android, Web)

Our team implemented incremental learning algorithms. It allows for enhancing the AI model, with new data in real-time, thereby minimizing the need for a large-scale model retraining.

Our team has utilized cross-platform development tools. These tools are React Native, to develop applications that are compatible with different platforms (iOS, Android, web).
