The first chatbot was created more than a half of a century ago. Yet, nowadays everyone seems to be infected with the idea of it's creation. This fact can be explained by the evolution of Artificial Intelligence, which has been dramatically accelerated over the past few years. To single out all the necessary steps which you need to perform to develop a mobile application with a bot, we need to deal with the concept of the chatbot.
you want. As a matter of fact, we define two of them:
- Chatbots, which work using machine learning algorithm.
- Chatbots, which work on specific commands.
How machine learns
By all means, it’s far too early to talk about fully-featured Artificial Intelligence yet. However, at this point, we can build self-learning programs, which is a huge leap forward to AI buildup. Programs, which use Machine learning algorithm, are able to past experience and patterns and learn from them. The more you talk to your the better it becomes.
But what makes the program so humane-like? How can a bot communicate as a real person? Well, this technology is called Natural language processing, and it combines natural language understanding and natural language generation, along with connecting language with machine perception and managing human-computer dialogue systems.
, Telegram bots, Pandorabots and wit.ai, or even non-coding services, like or allow you to create a bot without a line of code.
Anyway, there are lots of technologies you can apply to achieve your goals. Yet, it’s much more important to figure out how to make your chatbot interesting for people, make it funny and useful. To accomplish it you need to forget about long answers, the dialogue with the bot should not remind of a lecture, I’m sure everyone knows how to use Google search and it’s not the kind of answer users want to hear from your program. What they really want is a dialogue, I mean real interaction! So, your bot’s replies should be formed on the base of real conversations and should copy one. Remember, you ought to update your bot from time to time, your users’ feedbacks should help you with it. Read comments from users and enhance the bot in line with wishes the customers.
To conclude, of course, it`s up to you whether you need or not the chatbot in your project. Yet, before you make a final decision, chew this idea over, think what potential horizons the chatbot can broaden and how it can advance your application.
