About This Class


Chatbots are computer programs that can interact with humans through a simple conversational interface. They are designed to simulate an interaction with another human. Couple this with the fact that more than 90% of smartphone users spend most of their time in messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger and you have an excellent opportunity to build highly interactive chatbot based services that can empower business and enterprise like never before.

Chatbots have emerged as fantastic tools for marketing and productivity which is why companies from Amtrak to Fandango and many more are embracing Chatbots and getting a massive boost in their business through pure customer delight, that translates into conversions.

In this first class of a multi-series course, we will understand what a chatbot is and then we'll build our very first and basic chatbot for Facebook Messenger. Throughout this course and subsequent classes in this series, we will be using Chatfuel, one of the most popular bot building platform for Facebook Messenger. 

In subsequent classes, we will gradually up the ante to create advanced chatbots that incorporate features such as Natural Language Processing, Databases, Webviews, Geolocation and more.
