Chances are pretty high that you’ve talked to a chatbot at least once in your life.
If you’ve ever asked Siri a question, gone shopping through Kik, or requested directions from Cortana, you’ve stepped into the world of chatbots.
Some people use the abbreviation "Xmas", which is an based on the initial letter chi (Χ) in the Greek word for Christ: Khrīstos (Χριστός).
The December 25th date is actually just an estimate of when Jesus was born, the Bible does not give an exact date.
And yes—even start-ups can tap into this awesome potential. Let me walk you through what chatbots are, why they’re such a huge opportunity, and how you can build one of your very own to connect with your customers.
Most chatbots are limited micro apps that respond to basic questions according to a prescribed set of rules.
Now that the leading messaging platforms, including Messenger (Facebook), Telegram or Slack offer bot-related services, the remaining question may become: are chatbots living up to their promises? While on the technical side bot-building frameworks, services, and libraries keep getting better, chatbots’ ability to understand their users and express themselves needs to be more refined for mass adoption.
A chatbot is not a mobile app and is not a website. When someone messages your Facebook page, a human response is expected, so you should make your conversations human-friendly, playful, warm, funny, physical.😀Plus, there ain’t no conversation without emojis! Is the user going to type, click a button or send an attachment?
In that regard, tokenization is pre-processing: it identifies the basic units (words and sentences) that will be processed during the analysis.
While this step may seem basic, the tokenization must be accurate for the rest of the analysis to be relevant.
Users should never be confused about what’s coming next.
Button texts should clearly represent and communicate their actions.
