Venture Asheville Lunch & Learn

October 20, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Chatbot State of the Union


Chatbots are now ubiquitous and are used in a wide array of applications for both products and services. They’re also getting smarter and “more human” – you’ve likely even interacted with one without even realizing it.

What will be covered:

– Definition of chatbots

– Which platforms support chatbots

– Overview of the chatbot ecosystem

– Examples and case studies

– Pros and cons of chatbots

– We’ll build a working chatbot using free services

Q&A session to follow
