Question of the Week


Question: "I went to a website to buy something and I had a question.  So, I used the "Chat" that was on the website.  Once I started, it told me I was chatting with a bot.  What the heck is a bot?"



Have you ever called a large company and wound up on hold for 30 minutes or 60 minutes or even longer?  What if there was a way you could ask a common question of a company without tying up your phone line?  Well, there is a way for many companies and the list is growing.


More and more companies are using bots.  Bots (also referred to as chatbots) are interactive chats which use artificial intelligence to simulate conversations between real people.  When you chat with a bot, it attempts to process your conversation as if it was a real person. 


This might sound a bit spooky but the good news is bots can often save you tons of time. 


For the record, not all bots are techie-related.  There are many games and other light-hearted bots. 


Where do you find bots?  Some bots are available online through a browser while others are found in the Social Media realm.  Facebook Messenger and KiK have bots, to name just two.


An example of a web-based bot would be Jenn from Alaska Airlines.  You can find her by clicking the Jenn button below.


If you use Facebook messenger, there are tons of bots.  One of these is "Healthybot."  This bot can send you daily tips to improve your health including nutrition and fitness tips.

If you use KiK, one of my favorite bots there is IsaWord.  You can ask this bot a word and it will teach you the etymology of the word. 


If you haven't tried a chatbot yet, find one and give it a try.
