Do you chatbot?
Continuing our "best of" series, this week we're featuring a rundown of the Top 10 Bluemix tutorials for business process management. Enjoy the latest and greatest on Bluemix!
Did you know there are two main types of chatbots? One functions based on a set of rules, and the other, which is more advanced, uses artificial intelligence. Chatbots based on rules tend to be limited in functionality and are as smart as they are programmed to be, while chatbots that use artificial intelligence understand language, not just commands, and continuously get smarter as they learn from conversations.
The developerWorks team recently published a three-part series on "how to create a chatbot."
This tutorial series shows how you can create a news chatbot through two messaging applications: Facebook and Slack. You can then use IBM Watson services to enhance the chatbot.
