The year 2017 will open a new era of how humans interact with digital services. Chatbots are the new interface for humans to interact with computers. Chatbots allow us to get the same digital services that we have been using but without the need of any installation of an app. And that is not even the best part of Chatbots. Chatbots do all the stuff using natural language.
So we can just say stuff like “Order A Game of Thrones book from Amazon”. The Chatbot sees the rest of the things and will order on your behalf. All this happen without even installing or opening Amazon App.
So when Facebook first announced the Messenger platform last year, I started learning about it and created some of my pet projects. I wanted to write tutorials about my experiences but was very busy with other kinds of stuff. But now, I have decided that I will continue posting some new tutorials related to ChatBots and Natural Language Processing.
We are going to make a simple messenger chatbot which will just reply the same thing back that it received to the user. So suppose if I message “Hiii” to the Bot, it will reply “Hiii” back to me. I know this is very simple and not of any use. But this is like the Hello World project for people who want to learn how to make ChatBots.
Let’s Get Started. 😀
