IoTFriday: Chatbots

BY :     September 15, 2017

We bring a new #IoTFriday. Today Chris den Arend joins us to talk about chatbots. These digital personal assistants are popping up everywhere. They help us a lot in our daily lives. You use an online helpdesk or get help booking a holiday with a digital assistant without even knowing it is not a real person.

#IoT enables chatbots to mature rapidly. Huge datasets are available that can serve as a knowledge base and connectivity is giving the bots all input they need to act more and more human (or you could say, smarter).

Sit back and enjoy a new #IoTFriday. If a specific topic tickles your mind let us know and we’ll get back to you in one the next IoTFridays!
