Bots and chatbots are the talk of town. Sprinkle some Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on top and we have some marketing fluff.
There is definitely a lot of fluff about all of this, but it can also be good. I think the reason bots caught mainstream attention is because it personifies code, it personifies technology. It is suddenly something we can all understand and relate to. And this is exactly how it should be played.
I’ve got some chatbots I’ve made: IQta.gs and DooBot are 2 examples. Very basic bot-beings, but it’s there to help people. If you have some good ideas around these hipsterish technologies, we should talk!
