Tech News

What the heck is a Chatbot and why you cannot ignore it anymore? Why are the Chatbots such a buzz? Will Chatbots replace Apps?

On the 19th of May (19:00) the very first startup meetup around a hot topic Chatbots will take place in Limassol, Cyprus. RiseTech Media and Limassol Grind invited Dr. Barbara Ondrisek, from Austria, to share her experiences about developing chatbots and founding the ChatbotsAgency.

Dr. Barbara Ondrisek, aka “Bot Mother”, is an enthusiastic software developer with 15+ years of experience. With Mica, the Hipster Cat Bot, a chatbot that helps you discover hip places, she created one of the first chatbots on the Facebook Messenger platform worldwide. Mica was the very first bot on Messenger and Skype in Austria, which led to a listing as a testimonial in the official Skype FAQs.

Together with other experts in their field, she founded the Chatbots Agency.

From very basic steps till technical part, together we will cover topics like:

• What a chatbot is and why is it so popular right now?

• What can we do with them: chatbot as a business case / Business Development

• Types of chatbots (different platforms, different types)

• Am I a robot or am I a human? Plain vs chatbots with personality

• Chatbot as an untapped marketing channel.

• Tools and cross-platform development

• Implementation of one of the first chatbots on Facebook and lessons learned.
