I first became interested in bots when I read about EstherBot, and have since read other articles such as PeterBot — the chatbot which replaced my CV and How to design a chatbot: creating a conversational interface.
So, I wonder about what bots could be used for and how I could develop a bot version of myself. My bot is called RogSwaBot (short for Roger Swannell’s Bot)
I’ve also began playing with a few different bot services such as api.ai and smooch.io (which quite rightly uses a bot for registering your account).
I’ve got a lot of work to do in learning how to develop a bot, but it should make for an interesting hobby.
