AI Chatbot Fundamentals
A chatbot replaces traditional graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that are unique for each application or website with a “conversational user interface”. If built correctly, this means people can communicate with chatbots on a website, in SMS, email, Cisco Spark, Workplace for Facebook, Skype, Slack, Facebook Messenger, or in other channels of choice.
The omni-channel nature of chatbots presents a new level of ease and convenience for users, and new paths to monetary value for the enterprise. Instead of requiring people to find, learn, and use yet another distinct application interface, chatbots bring interactions to where people already are.
At the core of many chatbot services, are chatbot frameworks that provide developers with development structures from which they can build individual chatbots. Microsoft, Facebook, and other companies released their own frameworks with the intent of enabling developers to mass produce chatbots on their messaging platforms.
There’s a difference between a true platform and AI chatbot frameworks or solutions comprised of piecemeal components from different vendors that are masquerading as a platform.
