Chat Bots Weekly

Sorry about the delay, it’s been a crazy week!

Yesterday I participated in b2bots, a panel organized by gyro, a leading agency in the b2b space. There was a lot of excitement in the room about this space. Also, Esther (you may know her from EstherBot) put together a “botbrunch” last Sunday, where we discussed topics ranging from “are there more bot developers than bot users?” to how to assess the real value behind creating a chat bot. I was surprised to see Chris Messina there, also known as “the botfather” in Twitter ;). 

From the tech innovation side, this week has been great. TechCrunch Disrupt was here in NYC, and pretty amazing products such Viv as went public (you haven’t seen the demo? Please do!). And on the other side, Google released an open source library to explain the functional role of each word in a given sentence. Ah! And just two hours ago Google released their messaging app, Allo, with some bot capabilities.
