While chatbots are prevalent, they lack the emotional intelligence to haggle effectively. Predictions show a 35% increase in chatbot use in e-commerce by 2024.

The goal is to create emotionally intelligent AI that can recognize and respond to customer emotions for a more personalized shopping experience.
