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
