ANZ trials new digital assistant

ANZ's newest staff member is attracting the attention of the online world.

The bank is trialling its own version of Apple's Siri, but their new technology is more lifelike, as though you're talking to a real person.

Jamie - the name given to their new digital assistant - is so lifelike you can hold a conversation with her.

There is one catch, she only knows the answers to questions about ANZ's website, but is happy to venture off-course to talk about her favourite movies, favourite colour and what she got up to on the weekend.

She goes live on ANZ's website on Tuesday.

Liz Macguire, ANZ's head of digital and transformation, says she won't have access to personal information and that there are no plans for the online worker to replace the real thing in banks.
