February 8, 2023

On Wednesday, February 8th, 2023, Talkdesk® is releasing a new version of AI Trainer™.




  • Precision metric: Automatically calculates a precision score for each AI model and its intents. Supervisors and Admins can view the performance of models and intents on the Models page (as seen above), via the proportion’s automatic calculation of phrases that were correctly identified as being part of an intent.


You can easily see if an intent model is sufficiently trained, and focus on the models and intents that require the most training on the Precision score graphic on the Trends page (as seen above).

Note: This metric is only available after the first complete review of an intent on the Quality Check page (Agreement process).



  • Custom vocabularies automatically available: Once a new Speech-to-Text model is created and configured on AI Launchpad, the custom vocabulary is immediately available, so common transcription mistakes can be corrected and the overall accuracy of speech-to-text (STT) transcriptions improved.

Note: Custom vocabularies are only available for customers with a Premium subscription to the CXA package.


September 28, 2022

On Wednesday, September 28th, 2022, Talkdesk®is releasing a new version of AI Trainer™.

We are introducing new enhancements and fixes, including:




Training tasks page: Now, Agents have a new labeling experience. Tasks (labeling of phrases/utterances) are divided into sets of ten tasks each, and it is possible to follow progress. 

A simple user interface helps Agents correctly and quickly classify utterances through the options “Yes”, “No”, and “Not sure”. This feature also provides the interaction’s context of the phrase, as well as examples (training phrases) of the identified intent. 

Note: Only Agents can access this page.


Amazon LEX connector: An Admin using, or planning to use, Amazon Lex as the Natural Language Understanding platform, can connect with Talkdesk AI Trainer™ to easily fine-tune its intent models. AI Trainer can automatically collect intent data from Amazon Lex and give a simplified and non-technical way to train its intent models.


Alerts page: All issues found on Amazon Lex models will be listed under the new Alerts page.

Note: This page is only visible to Supervisors and Admins.


Entities on Talkdesk Intent Service: Supervisors and Admins can manage entities on AI Trainer when the model provider is Talkdesk Intent Service on AI Settings (one of the providers used for AI models behind products such as Talkdesk Agent Assist™ and Talkdesk Interaction Analytics™).


September 7, 2022 

On Wednesday, September 7th, 2022, Talkdesk®is releasing a new version of AI Trainer™.

We are introducing new enhancements and fixes, including:


Inbox page: New triage rules reduce the amount of clutter in the Inbox. This helps agents focus on labeling relevant phrases/utterances that are representative of the latest business changes.

Now, the Inbox page only displays the last 150 phrases, making the process of labeling tasks less vast and more attainable. Searching and filtering on this page are applied to all the inbox’s content, sticking also to the 150 results limit.


  • Fixed a bug where parameters, that were not being used, were removed from their corresponding intents whenever any intent would be updated.


May 14, 2021

On Friday, May, 14th, 2021, we will release Talkdesk AI Trainer™.

Talkdesk AI Trainer is a new product that enables clients to automate their contact center in a better and faster way. Talkdesk AI Trainer allows agents and supervisors to observe, validate, and quickly improve AI models through clicks, rather than code.

The system also ensures that multiple agents can work together to develop a consensus relating to a correct update, allowing supervisors to focus on reviewing suggestions and deploying the right update.


What’s Included

This release includes the following main features:

  • Speech-to-text Vocabulary Training: This feature enables correcting speech-to-text (STT) transcriptions, improving the accuracy in detecting product names, and fixing pronunciation errors. In addition, it collects wrong transcriptions from other systems that use speech-to-text.
  • Intent Model Training: AI Trainer users could train intents by feeding the system with synthetic data in the form of training phrases, or using a quality assurance system called “Agreement” to ensure the right suggestions from agents are reviewed and deployed by the supervisors.
  • Training Custom Entities: With this feature, users can annotate custom entities in training phrases for intent models, which enables more complex conversational flows, and speeds up conversations by training AI to recognize context.

How to Install
