Chat bot mature
This post is meant to provide some insight into using Facebook’s simple Send/Receive bots API, as well as Facebook’s more complex AI engine, Wit. We’ll reference these two as Simple Bot and Complex Bot throughout the post. Each part operates mutually exclusive of the other. In this case, a webhook for listening is required only once, after which, the Send API takes over for responding. You can build a bot which will send the user messages (for example: news updates) after conversation is initiated.And in the not-so-distant future, we predict bots will have sophisticated tools for video.Important to note: Facebook Messenger API does not support group chats at this time.They usually also have a graphical component built in, as well, in the form of an avatar (often female) that enhances interaction, thus improving your experience.
When the listener receives a message from a user, or when some business logic is written to automate a Send API response, Facebook Messenger can send a message to the user which may contain text, images, links and buttons.Recently you may have been hearing the buzzwords such as chatbots, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how this technology is disrupting industries.Although the terms ML and AI are not correctly understood and used, it’s hard to believe that chatbots are just a ‘fad’.These days I spend my time messaging through Facebook Messenger and Whats App and I’m not alone.Messaging apps usage has surpassed social networks in 2015 and will continue to do so at an increasing rate.
