A chat bot is a program that is designed to run an on-line chat session via text or voice-to-voice, rather than giving direct physical contact with a human agent. Chat bots are extremely popular on websites like Facebook because they allow users to chat without having to deal with pesky humans. For example, let’s say that you have a business online and would like your customers or clients to contact you via Facebook. What can you do? Well, if you have a chat bot that is specifically designed for Facebook then you could easily have it send messages and chat to your Facebook friends.
In order for your chatbot to chat freely on Facebook, it must be connected to an open domain, which means that the server where it runs does not actually have to be Facebook based. Simply put, an open domain is one that can be accessed from anywhere and will use your current IP address as its IP address. One of the main reasons why chat bots were initially developed for chat rooms was so that every user could have their own chat room. This was necessary because many individuals did not want to share the same chat room with any other user due to safety concerns.
Chat bots that are based on Facebook applications can be incredibly useful. You can set up your bot to perform specific functions such as posting status updates or chatting with friends. However, these chat bots are not the best solution because of how they are used. Due to the fact that these chat bots are not controlled by the actual person that initially set up the application, there is always a chance that the bot will receive an inappropriate message. If the bot is not a Facebook fan or uses Facebook applications poorly, it could actually cause problems with individuals who are using these chat bots in a personal or business capacity.
Another issue that many individuals have had with chat bots is that many of them chat too much. It has been suggested that if you are talking to the bot you should only say positive things or have a pleasant voice tone. This allows the chat bot to actually understand what you are saying and prevent the occurrence of non-verbal communications such as tone, facial expression or conversation anxiety. When a chat bot chatters excessively it can actually distract the person from other conversations that may be taking place. For example, if someone was having a conversation with another individual, but the bot chatters excessively, this can potentially break the connection between the two individuals. This can actually be very damaging to a business or personal relationship.
There are some chat bots that are designed to remain away from direct interactions with the user. This may sound like a good idea but many of these types of chat Bots are actually referred to as “spam bots”. These types of chat Bots send commercial messages to users in hopes of tempting them to respond to the bot or to visit a website that the bot is promoting. This type of messaging can actually have an adverse affect on businesses or personal relationships.
Many of these chat Bots that are now in use actually fall into the category of “immobilizers”. What this means is that these Bots will cause a disruption to a chat/video session or to a particular online website. The immobilizer will typically send a series of messages to a specific area of the chat room until the user is prompted to log out of the chat. In many cases, these types of chat Bots will use artificial intelligence to attempt to obtain personal information from the user. However, there is evidence that in some cases, these artificial intelligence applications have caused more harm than good to some users. As a result, chat rooms, chat apps and websites are closing down.
How does a chatbot have the ability to become so intelligent? This is largely dependent on the developers who program these chat bot applications. The more sophisticated the bot, the more complex the artificial intelligence system that is installed within the bot. For instance, if an engineer were to program a chat bot that was able to communicate in both English and Chinese, the chat bot would be considered an “artificial intelligence supercomputer”. In order for such a bot to remain functional, it would have to continually evaluate and change as it learned more about communicating in various languages.
In short, chat bots can be classified into three different categories; AI language processing, machine learning and tactical reasoning. All three of these bots are excellent conversational interface overlays for online chat rooms. If you have an important chat room business and are looking into using a chat bot for promotional purposes, I recommend you speak with your bot developer. Your bot developer will be able to assess your specific needs and help you determine which of the three types of chat bots will best fit your purposes.
