• Bot to bot communication: The next frontier

    91springboard

    Almost all of the discussion around bots has focused on bot-to-human interactions: how bots interact with humans, conversational interfaces, etc. However, there is a bigger aspect of the bot phenomenon that hasn’t been much explored: bot-to-bot interactions. Bots communicating with each other can enable amazing new possibilities. Bots can negotiate and transact deals with each other giving rise to bot marketplaces. Bots can collaborate with each other to form groups, hierarchies and other organisations to achieve tasks more complex than any single bot can. Enabling bot-to-bot communication also makes bot building easier. A developer can simply string multiple bots together to create a new bot. Attend this Meetup and you will learn: - What is bot-to-bot communication - Implications of bot-to-bot communication - A demo of Interbot - a channel that enables bot-to-bot communication Sohan Maheshwar (https://sohan.carrd.co/) - Lead developer relations | Gupshup Please RSVP here (http://tc.im/botb) Agenda for the meetup - - Overview - Use cases - Platform demo - Q & A - Networking

  • Build smart bots with NLP

    91springboard

    Chatbots are programs that mimic conversation with people. Over time chatbots have become highly responsive and intuitive with the integration of A.I. As the bot ecosystem evolves, developers are creating extremely smart chatbots that are solving real world problems like undertaking bookings and answering frequently asked questions about the services offered by brands and businesses Gupshup is empowering developers to create smart chatbots supported by Artificial Intelligence (AI), assisted with language recognizing and answering back voice systems. These intelligent bots are emerging as substitutes to call center assistance. Combining the power of data and constant personalization, bots can make a simple customer service conversation short and effective. These data-driven intelligent strategies can help developers build products which can even surpass human service agents. Join us at our meetup where we shall discuss the latest developments on Gupshup platform in detail and throw light upon some of the popular use cases.

  • Building Advanced Bots

    91springboard

    While many of the early bots have been simple bots with limited capabilities, we're now starting to see advanced bots emerging. By advanced bots, we mean bots focused on business-critical use-cases with rich features and functionality along with a large-scale user-base. These bots have carefully crafted conversational interfaces. They use natural language capabilities to enable unstructured user queries. They are well scripted with a consistent personality and tone of voice. They enable real mission-critical use-cases. And they're designed to scale for a global audience. Please RSVP (http://tc.im/botb) so we know how many people to accommodate! Also, feel free to reach out on social media to or email to let me know how to make these meet ups better for the community. Thanks and happy bot building!

  • Countdown to F8 : Chat bots - The Future of Messaging

    Facebook will open up its Messenger chat service to outside businesses, potentially as early as its F8 conference on April 12-13, VentureBeat reports. “April’s going to be a hot month,” said Mike Roberts, head of Messenger at Kik. Gupshup CEO called chat “a once in a decade paradigm shift,” where only now is the infrastructure really ready for commerce-related transactions to happen within the chat format. With the rise of messaging platforms, like Facebook Messenger, Telegram and Slack, we are seeing an increasing number of chat bots that communicate with users by sending and receiving messages for all sorts of uses. With chat bots, the conversation is the interface. Because bot developers must focus on designing what is now the conversational interface. So, what's the big hype about F8 announcements? What will be the implications in the messaging space? Come join us in the discussion. We call it 'Countdown to F8' You need to RSVP @ http://tc.im/cdf8b Please note this is a free event and Pizza and refreshments will be served.
