What is a Chatbot?


A chatbot is an artificial intelligence (AI) program that can simulate a conversation (or a chat) with a user in natural language through messaging applications, websites, mobile applications or by phone.


For example, You want to buy some shoes from your local retail store, you have to access their website, find what you are looking for and buy it. But what if that store had a bot? It would only be necessary to write a message to the brand through Facebook and tell them what we want. And if you had doubts about size measurements you could get answers to your problem in a moment.

Why are Chatbots Important? 

Chatbot applications streamline interactions between people and services enhancing customer experience. At the same time, they offer companies new opportunities to improve the customers engagement process and operational efficiency by reducing the typical cost of customer service.
