We told you late last year about another rumor from the that Google was working on yet another messaging service—to build on their existing, smashing successes—that would be built with a focus on bots.
This report sounds more plausible and focuses on the work of the same Googler, Nick Fox.
But before I get to that, and why I installed and uninstalled Tinder on my i Phone in under an hour, I’d like to go over a few things. I don’t drink because all alcohol does is lubricate lies but I’m more than happy to drink a Diet Coke and we can talk about whatever you want to talk about.
This is what I learned when I used the dating app Tinder. But here I am in a hotel room I can’t really afford in a small city I don’t know texting with a cute stranger who found me attractive and I don’t know what’s next but maybe you want to meet up? Then she wrote “click on this link if you want to talk more.” Why would I do that, Olivia? Stagger about, bruise, push through pain, and swoon when embraced.
We decided to put Oscar to the test, and asked him a few of our most burning questions.
While Oscar, who has been launched as a beta product, knows a thing or two about about lounge membership...
Air New Zealand has announced the arrival of its baby chatbot Bravo Oscar Tango (Bravo for short), a cute little dude in a pilot's cap that uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to answer customer queries.
Like real-life children, Oscar learns from experience and the airline stresses that he is still earning his wings, but is able to help out with online queries relating to the Air New Zealand lounge, Airpoints and baggage.
His story is sad and proof that humanity can’t have nice things. What happened next would be perfunctory: I would charm her with my witty banter, and then she’d happily agree to come to the hotel room of a total stranger.
The technology is not a product of Microsoft itself.
The National Human Trafficking Hotline received more than 5,000 reports of sex trafficking in 2016, but most cases are believed to go unreported.
More than a new messaging service, which doesn't definitively rule out, Google wants to make its analytics and natural language processing strengths available to developers to create their own bots.
There is still more to learn, but it seems relatively clear that we should expect a set of developer tools provided by Google to help third parties develop bots.
