Me, Myself And AI ─ What The Future Is Bringing

We are starting to live in the future, and what we all witness in the movies is starting to happen now.

The growth of human knowledge, with the help of computers, is expanding with the speed of light.

The things that are happening now and what will occur in the next 20 years will be unbelievable.

We, as a civilization, will reach one of the fastest growing stages in our history, compared with the nature of our evolving in the way we established our societies from an agricultural society to an industrial.

And in the past couple of decades, we entered the technological stage of our existence in which we transformed into the Artificial Intelligence stage where all things happened much more faster than anything we have experienced so far.

What is Artificial Intelligence and What Have We Accomplished So Far?

The ability of a program or machine to think and learn and be able to mimic human behavior is called AI.

Software developers are in constant need to achieve intelligent machines that will, in fact, act and think like a human.

This was achieved a while back in the late 1980s, with one of the oldest games “Chess,” where computer programs accomplished to learn and beat a chess master.

IBM developed a Chess computer called Deep Blue which was programmed to make a logical decision and play the game on its own. One of the first significant successes on Deep Blue was back in 1996 where Deep Blue beat world champion Gary Kasparov in one game out of six. After this match, they upgraded the computer, and in May 1997, played with Kasparov again, and Deep Blue won six games in the match.

This was a stunning accomplishment for the AI world and was a push to developers to pursue the AI technology and put it to use in our day to day lives.

The ancient game Go is “the oldest board game” played today.

It`s more than 2500 years old, and compared to Chess, this game possesses more possibilities than the total number of atoms in the visible universe ─ so, with this enormous potential outcome, there was no computer that could calculate every move and beat a human opponent ─ until now.

In 2010, Demis Hassabis, Shane Legg and Mustafa Suleyman founded Deep Mind Technologies Limited, a British artificial intelligence company, acquired by Google in 2014.

What they did was that they created a neural network that gives ability to the computer to learn how to play games in the way humans do with practice and learning from their mistakes.

The most extraordinary thing happened last year when a program that they created, called AlphaGo, beat Europe`s Go champion, Fan Hui, in five games.

With this kind of technology, the game is changing, and the possibilities of AI machines being smarter than humans is getting closer.

  • Self-Driving Cars

Elon Musk, the founder, and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, promised in one of his interviews that the Tesla car will make an automated trip from L.A. to New York by the end of this year.

This is the one everyone is waiting for; a personal computer driver like in the movie, Time Cop, where Jean-Claude Van Damme enters the car and just says “home” and the car drives him to his destination.

  • Robots

Hanson Robotics made a social robot named Sofia.

The AI software that they developed is giving Sophia ability to process visual data, as she can see peoples’ faces and react accordingly, make conversion, show emotions, and with all of this, she can make interactions with people.

And the most interesting aspect is that she looks like a human girl.

Final Thoughts

These are just a couple of examples of what we have accomplished so far.

And with what the future will bring, we can only imagine what is to come, but I believe that the internet will be the brain of future AI and the technology of inventing what we see in Hollywood movies is closer than we think.

Custom Chatbot Development Platform Features You Need To Know

 

 

Now is the right time to consider getting into the game of chatbots.

With Facebook’s announcement of allowing chatbots into their Messenger App, the number of bots is rising every day, and they have grown to more than 100,000 strong.

Now is the time to be creative and put to life something different ─  it’s time to make your own chatbot.

Use your creativity and an open mind to create a bot that will help your business grow and take some work off your hands, giving you the opportunity to concentrate on other, more important parts of your business.

If you are thinking of building a chatbot, be sure to choose the right development platform, such as ChattyPeople.

Here’s why and what you need to know:

Three Features a Bot Development Platform Must Have

1. NLP

Natural language processing, or NLP, helps the chatbot to enhance automated conversation.

When working with a platform that has a built-in NLP, it will automatically detect meaning and information in the messages that it’s receiving when a user is chatting with it. Also, it will process the data before passing the information to the chatbot’s controller.

2. Handover Protocol 

Handover protocol is a feature that makes a chat experience available for cross app collaboration.

With this protocol, you are able to provide better customer support; it helps secure transfer between automated chat via “chatbot vs. human” and “human vs. human.”

In other words: You can enable your chatbot to connect the customer with a live customer support agent. With this option, you will be able to jump in and help the customer with more complex issues.

3. Seamless Payments Flow

With a feature like this, you will provide the customer with a one step payment experience within the messaging platform. This makes the payment process much easier and quicker.

Here are Some Questions You Might Have:

  • How can I start and develop a chatbot on my own?
  • Where to find the right development platform?
  • Will I be able to handle a platform like this, as I don’t have coding experience?
We at ChattyPeople are the answer to all these questions.

Final Thoughts

We have an easy-to-use development platform that has all the new technology in coding, such as AI Machine Learning and Natural Processing Language, and we can integrate with streamline payments.

The best thing with using ChattyPeople is that you don’t have to worry about coding. With our free startup kit and platform with drag and drop, you will be able to setup and run your chatbot today.

Custom Chatbot Development Features You Should Include In Your Marketing

Chatbot technology is rapidly rising, and with Artificial Intelligence advances being made all the time, it will continue to expand as nothing else before.

I think the use of chatbots will be something as big as the internet itself. These little machines inside the digital world will prove themselves to be extremely useful.

Chatbots are not just a new trend that everyone is starting to use, they have a tremendous benefit in the e-commerce business world, and the opportunity to use them as a tool for marketing is expanding enormously.

What is the Point of Using Marketing?

Marketing is the oldest strategy in the world and is what makes a company successful.

The biggest point of using marketing as a strategy for improving your business is to “SPREAD THE WORD” to let people find your business and know exactly what you offer.

Just the creation of a company is marketing on some level. For example, you are preparing your store for opening day and you will need someone to work in the store. Therefore, you put an ad out that positions are available, and this is a use of marketing as you are making people aware of your business before you even open the store.

People will talk about a new store that is opening in their community and others will talk about applying for a position within your company.

This process is the first type of marketing ─ by spreading the word.

Where to Market Your Company?

Companies started to advertise themselves in many kinds of media that have a large number of users, such as newspapers, live television, billboards and so on.

Even though these media outlets are successful, they will never be able to attract the same number of users as today’s Facebook or YouTube platforms, or any other internet channel that is used today.

What’s the Point of Knowing This Information?

The point is to give you two ideas on how to proceed when deciding to build your bot:

1. Integration

You need to be able to integrate your chatbot into Facebook so you can reach 1 billion users on one platform, along with the use of a call to action “CTA” button that Facebook allows developers to use to direct consumers to your products or services.

2. Promote

Use your chatbot to its maximum potential.

The most common use for a chatbot today is customer support. However, it doesn’t stop there. When you start to develop your chatbot, make it capable of pushing offers and giving the user options to shop from the Messaging app.

Why Should You Use a Chatbot and the Messenger App?

You should use your chatbot with Facebook’s Messenger because of the human nature to do more things in one place.

Final Thoughts

If you don’t have a chatbot, you need to rethink that notion and start building one today. 
 
This is the future, so don’t put yourself in a situation where you will start losing clients because you do not work with today’s technology.

We, here at ChattyPeople, want you to take advantage of our free starter kit and build your chatbot with us. There is help every step of the way, and all you have to do to get started is to make a free account today.

My Name Is Bot, Chatbot

The Web is Not Enough!

With the use of the internet and the beginning of the World Wide Web, we changed the way we communicate with each other, in a way that defines us today as the most socialized, interactive and connected.

And we are able to reach information like never before.

With the first chat platforms that were created back in the 1990`s, platforms like Mircd and Microsoft’s Hotmail Messenger opened a door that will never be closed again.

It opened a door where chit-chat between people started, and we transferred from simple web-based companies’ presentations to complex websites where you are able to communicate to their chatbot platform, interact with their customer support, and buy products 24/7.

The simple web wasn’t enough, and the competitive nature between companies and individuals started creating and providing tools that we use every day.

We can’t imagine a day without them.

The Company With the Golden Bot!

The race between the biggest players has started; who will provide the Golden Bot that will have the most users and will provide the best experience and usefulness?

Here is a list of the most used bots, so far:

  • Siri ─ Apple’s interface ─ 34%
  • Google`s Assistant ─ 19%
  • Alexa ─ From Amazon ─ 6%
  • Cortana ─ From Microsoft ─ 4%
  • Apple’s HomePod Speaker was purchased this summer, so it’s too early to tell yet.

What Apple wants to do is compete with Amazon’s Alexa and Google`s Assistant. That proves that the possibility of new players getting into the game won’t be a surprise, and I believe that Microsoft won’t hold back and will surprise us with a device of their own.

Call Another Day No More!

I remember the time where I stayed on the line just to speak with someone and when finally, I had the opportunity to talk,  I would still wait while some customer support agent searched to find the right answer.

Or, when I wanted to make my holiday vacation plans and contacted a travel agency, I would stay on the phone while they wrote down the dates, location I wanted to go, etc. and I would get, “Call us tomorrow so we can give you the best fairs that we can find for you.”

All that is over now as you can contact the companies and work with the ones that are able to provide you the best and fastest customer support 24/7 and it’s all possible with a use of a chatbot.

 A License to Bot!

What we do here at ChatyPeople is we help companies build their enterprise chatbot with no coding needed with the use of ultimate-powered AI that allows them to create personalized chatbot platforms integrated into Messaging Apps of their choice.

And the best thing is that it’s FREE TO START.

My advice to you is to Register for Free today and see how your chatbot will help you to grow your business.

My name is Bot ─ ChatBot  ─ What will your chatbot`s name be?

“Why is that a person who can’t take advice always insists on giving it?”
