Our bot news articles keep you informed about all of the exciting implications of these technologies. We’ve covered topics from bot personality design, which enables bots to behave and sound like actual humans, to exciting chatbot use cases, like in-office productivity and financial services. And we’re exploring new chatbot discoveries all the time.
What’s certain is that, without a keen understanding of the new ways that developers are using chatbots, you’ll have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to developing your own. After all, you want your bot to hold its own against competing services—especially when your employer is investing in chatbots to pursue tangible business goals. What’s more, you want your bot to stand out. You want it to meet users’ needs in an engaging, effective way so that they spread the word and continue to activate your bot.
When you keep up with bot news, you can do just that. You save the time and the energy of creating “new” features that others have already fleshed out. Not only that, it connects you to new opportunities and audiences that are underserved by the current generation of chatbots. You can build a new kind of bot that does meet those users’ needs and that carves out a solid niche.
