What is a bot?
A bot is a coded software application for certain functions. Bots are automatic, which ensures that they run without a human user having to start them up according to their instructions. Bots sometimes imitate or override the actions of a human person. We typically perform repetitive tasks and can do them even quicker than human users will.
|Bots usually operate over a network; over half of Internet traffic is bots that review material,|
|communicate with web pages, talk with users, or look for targets for attack. Several bots are helpful,|
|such as bots of search engines that index web information or bots of customer service that help|
|users. Some bots are “evil” and are programmed to hack into user accounts, search the site for spam|
|sending contact information, or conduct some harmful activities. If it is connected to the Internet,|
|there will be an IP address related to a bot.|
What Bots can do?
Bots can be used for multipurpose. Some of the bots being used are as following:
Chabot’s: Bots that simulate human conversation by responding to certain phrases with programmed responses
Web crawlers (Googlebots): Bots that scan content on webpages all over the Internet
Social bots: Bots that operate on social media platforms
What to know before creating a chatbot:
Your aim should be to make one that needs minimum or no human interference when you build a chatbot. Two strategies will do this.
The customer service team provides feedback from AI with the first approach to develop processes of customer service. The second method includes a deep learning chatbot that manages all interactions on its own and reduces the need for a customer service team.
That’s the chatbots power that increased the number of chatbots on Facebook Messenger from 100 K to 300 K in just 1 year. Many popular brands like MasterCard were also swift to create their own chatbots.
But let’s start at what precisely a deep learning chatbot is before we get into how the company should use such a chatbot.
What is a Deep Learning Chatbot?
A process called “Deep Learning” is used to make a deep learning chatbot to learn from scratch. Using machine learning and deep learning techniques such as repetitive neural network, the chatbot is developed in this process. A deep learning chatbot knows all from its data and from human-to- human conversation.
Use of Chatbot
The chatbot is focused on the text to grow his own knowledge, and you can tell him how to talk to people. Instead, through watching dialog or playing stories, you will instruct the chatbot. However, the preferred way to create the best possible deep learning chatbot is a human-to-human conversation. The more data you have, the better the machine learning efficiency will be.
Now that you know what a chatbot is about deep learning, let’s try to understand how you can create one from scratch.
Recent A.I based Chatbots
In order to improve the efficiency and significance of their performance, artificial intelligence chatbots use deep learning algorithms. We identify the purpose of users instead of programmed replies based on specific text information. All of the following examples of AI chatbots have developed for many years and are latest incarnations of existing AI bot ventures.
Mitsuku is the most popular AI online chatbot that everyone can talk with. It is based on Artificial Linguistic Internet Computer Entity (A.L.I.C.E.) database and enhances its conversation skills with advanced machine learning techniques. The chatbot won the Loebner Prize Turing Test four times.
Mitsuku bot is probably the smartest chatbot around. It is developed by Pandorabots – an AI software company founded by Richard Wallace. Mitsuku uses Artificial Intelligence Markup Language (AIML, created by Wallace) which is a dialect of Extensible Markup Language (XML) popular across web technologies.
Rose is an AI chatbot with a strong backstory. She is a former security consultant, lives in San Francisco, and likes listening to Florence and the Machine. Rose is a chatbot with an attitude that makes her quite memorable.
Rose was developed by Bruce Wilcox and his wife Sue Wilcox (he is the programmer, she is the writer). Wilcox believes in chatbots with sparkling personality – he had also created the infamous Talking Angela cat. The app stirred much controversy because of a hoax perpetrated by the internet users concerned with child safety.
Visual Dialog is a visual chatbot which can interpret images. The chatbot is based on computer vision and neural network technologies. Users can upload images directly through the chat box. The Visual Dialog chatbot will send a message describing what’s in the picture.
Playing around with Visual Dialog can be very entertaining and addictive. Image recognition features are sometimes used in ecommerce chatbots as well.
Visual chatbots from popular brands, such as Nike, can use pictures taken with your smartphone to find products or offer customization options.
Like other examples of chatbot artificial intelligence, Cleverbot is an online learning chatbot. To produce different answers, it conducts continuous communications with thousands of visitors.
Cleverbot has been taking part in several formal Turing Tests / Loebner Prize competitions since the early 2010s and has been considered one of the best AI chatterbots.
Cleverbot is a new, upgraded Jabberwacky release, a chatbot project that Rollo Carpenter has been developing since his teenage years. He created the AI technologies around the late 1990s that would boost his chatbot concepts. Since then, cleverbot has continually changed. Cleverbot responded when asked about AI takeover: I guess we’re going to see.
