How To Build The Best Bot

 

















The chatbot market was nearly USD 600 million in 2021, and is expected to grow

exponentially in the next few years. While it is very easy to build a bot, not many

businesses have been able to create the best user experience, making what

should be a tool that makes life easier, more burdensome. 


As a result of the need for chatbots and the number of challenges that may arrive

when creating one, here are a few points to consider when developing a chatbot.  


Pick Your Use Case 


Bots can be used in various industries to provide assistance with scheduling,

reminders, teaching, showing images, tracking, calling, supporting customers

and accepting payments, to name a few. These industries include finance,

healthcare, education, sales and marketing, retail and hospitality. Bot Libre has

supported a number of clients especially in retail, customer service, education and healthcare. 


Choose Your Language 


The programming language you use to create your bot is just as crucial as the

human language it can understand. Bot Libre developed the OMNI deep learning

model for metaverse-ready chatbots by combining vision deep learning models

with NLP deep learning models to provide multiple senses, integrated learning ,

awareness and navigation, not only in for the internet as it is today, but for what

it will be tomorrow, through the Metaverse.

Choose Your Platforms 

In order to decide the best place to distribute your bots, you should be aware

of who and where your customers are. Bot Libre allows users to deploy their

chatbots to Facebook, Twitter, SMS, telegram, email, mobile applications,

video conferencing, skype, Microsoft bot framework and websites.

Once deployed, Bot Libre bots can send and respond to messages and even make posts.

Outline The Bot’s capabilities 

Every user of your bot will not have the same needs or intentions.

Therefore it is important to offer a clear guide to all your bot options,

so users can be assisted as quickly as possible, providing a positive

chatbot experience. For example, a Bot Libre Bank Bot can help your

customers with bank queries like account types, opening an account,

bank balances , statements and other issues that may come up. 


Finally..Think Nuanced Not Nuisance 

You will likely create your bot with common responses to common questions

that are asked in your specific bot niche. However humans are not always

predictable and therefore they may come up with additional questions

or give ambiguous responses that the chatbot was not prepared for.

This leaves the chatbot confused, and many times the customer frustrated.

Bot Libre offers a solution to this by providing a platform to train your bot

using a conversation flow to set responses, keywords and topics. 


As put forward by contributors in a recent Forbes article,

“ Wherever you are in your journey as a business owner,

using chatbots can help you improve customer engagement,

expand your customer base, qualify leads at the outset and

expand to global markets easily. With so many advantages,

it makes sense to start using chatbots for your business growth right now.” 

If you wish to build a chatbot for your company, you can check out Bot Libre’s open-source platform that allows you to build a unique company bot with no programming and access to hundreds of pre-made bots, with varied purposes, personalities and a multilingual platform that supports any language.

Combining Vision and NLP AI to Navigate the Metaverse

 




















The goal for innovative and enterprising businesses is to be able to fully participate in the metaverse

in order to have immersive interaction with their clients. To this end industries like health, banking,

event planning, retail, gaming and education are all looking for, and investing into artificial intelligence

(AI) solutions so they can interact with customers in the metaverse. 


As the open-source chatbot and AI platform for the metaverse, we at Bot Libre have created AI solutions

that allows our bots to navigate the metaverse. We have developed the OMNI deep learning

model for metaverse-ready chatbots by combining vision deep learning models with NLP deep learning models to provide multiple senses, integrated learning , awareness and navigation in the Metaverse.

This will allow businesses to be functional and fully engaged with users in the Metaverse .  

With these models, users can explore a variety of different locations to chat with Bot Libre’s

chatbots and bots can walk around different 3D spaces following or guiding users through the space.

With Bot Libre’s AI algorithms, the chatbot's avatars can avoid obstacles and find the shortest path to

locations and objects.


Bot Libre's OMNI model enables bots to associate objects or location in the 3D scene with the user's speech
or chat messages. The bot can identify what the user is talking about in relation to the context of the 3D scene.



 

Some cool things you can do is say to the bot, "Go to the bar" and it will find an object in the scene that looks like a bar and navigate to it, or "sit down in the chair", it will scan its surrounding for an object that looks like a chair and sit down. But wait, it gets better. The algorithm is only vision and NLP based, so not only will it work with any scene in the metaverse, but if you connected it to a robot, it could also work in the real world, or in augmented reality.

 

Key Features of Bot Libre Metaverse:

- integrated chatbots, 3D avatars, and scenes

- large library of avatars, clothing, morphs, and scenes

- over 6 different avatar autonomous exploration and navigation modes

- optimized path navigation algorithms

- AI, deep learning based vision and NLP models

- chatbot commands to navigate and interact in the metaverse

- support for web, Android, iOS, Quest VR, 3D/VR/AR


Bot Libre is developing 3D and VR apps and SDKs to integrate the Bot Libre platform with the evolving Metaverse. If you are interested in using one of our solutions for your business, contact us at sales@botlibre.biz .

How Chatbots Can Make Your Business’s Apps Better

The popularity of chatbots and mobile apps is undeniable. This is evidenced by extensive data describing how much they are used and how the market is expected to benefit. 

For example, 2020 data from Statista shows that apps have reached over 3 million downloads for Android and over 2 million for iOS apps. Moreover, 2021 market share projections predict that 59% of global revenue will come from mobile phones. Meanwhile, 2016 reports show that the market for chatbots was estimated to be worth a little over USD 190 million. By 2025, it is expected to increase by nearly 24% to a value of USD 1.25 billion. 

With this in mind, marrying chatbots to mobile apps is like a match made in (business) heaven. Here are a few ways chatbots can make your business app better. 

Benefits 

Excellent Customer Service 
Chatbots, especially those powered by artificial intelligence, are efficient tools capable of responding 24/7 to customer queries, thereby reducing client wait time and increasing the likelihood of sales.

Customized Experience 
Based on intent and app behavior, a chatbot can make highly personalized product recommendations and make choices that usually suit the settings and needs of the user, thus creating a personalized journey for each client. 

Strengthens Marketing Efforts 
With the use of chatbots in mobile apps, businesses may gather a wealth of demographic and engagement data that can be utilized to improve each customer's experience and support wider business marketing strategies. 

Enhanced Onboarding 
A significant percentage of consumers never use an app again after the first time, according to numerous research. Why? A lack of clarity on what the app contains and how to use it. An intelligent chatbot can be particularly helpful in these situations by interacting with the user from the onset. Users can be guided by a chatbot through all app features, significantly reducing the chance of misunderstanding. 

Use Cases 

Many industries have already recognized the benefits of using chatbots in their mobile apps. Some of which include: 

Finance 
Companies like Bank of America and PayPal have integrated chatbots in their applications to engage with customers via text and sound about questions, investment opportunities, payment tracking, and other financial matters. 

Healthcare 
Chatbots provide critical and possibly lifesaving advice in a fraction of the time one would probably have to wait to see a doctor. These types of apps are not meant to replace doctors but to support an already overwhelmed system. Medical bots can provide interim health guidance. A virtual radiologist bot was developed by radiologist experts at the University of California (UCLA) that can assist patients and those looking for care by providing insightful answers to their concerns. The AI-based bot can give the doctor clinical patient data and can give the patient a thorough treatment plan. Bot Libre's parent company Paphus Solutions has developed several medical, first aid, and health and fitness chatbot apps for their clients across North America, Europe, and Asia using the Bot Libre platform. 

Shopping 
Stores like eBay and Whole Foods have created apps that have intelligent chatbots that help customers browse products, and in the case of eBay, act as personal shopping assistants offering suggestions based on uploaded pictures. Chatbots in the retail industry has become increasingly popular. A study showed that 70% of millennials and Gen Z were willing to use chatbots to make purchases of consumer products from applications. 

Learning 
As learning is no longer defined by the four walls of a classroom, virtual educational tools have increased in popularity. Bot Libre’s English Tutor app includes an intelligent chatbot that teaches English through regular conversation, offering a wide range of topics for the user to choose from. The app offers 24.7 learning availability, provides new and exciting learning techniques, creates a marketplace for English teachers, and is Self-paced. Another example comes from Duolingo. Through their app, users can practice their chosen language with a bot that develops in intelligence as more people use them. 

With open source platforms like Bot Libre, people can build their own chatbots with little to no programming and attach to their mobile apps using the open source Bot Libre mobile SDK and web API.

Why the Metaverse Needs AI, and AI Needs the Metaverse

At Bot Libre we have always been developing artificial intelligence for the Metaverse, we just did not have a name for it. The Bot Libre AI engine has always been designed to have a mind with multiple senses, it's just that with plain chat user interfaces, those senses could not be truly actualized. The Metaverse now provides a rich multi-sensory environment, and we are extremely excited to evolve the Bot Libre AI engine and platform to navigate the Metaverse.

We are developing new 3D and VR apps and SDKs to integrate the Bot Libre platform with the evolving Metaverse. We are integrating Bot Libre's NLP, vision, and spatial artificial intelligence algorithms into the Metaverse environment.

What is the Metaverse

The MetaVerse is a term used to describe a new vision for the Internet as a decentralized 3D space. The MetaVerse includes various technologies including:

  • 3D - 3D Worlds and Spaces
  • VR - Virtual Reality
  • AR - Augmented Reality
  • AI - Artificial Intelligence
  • Web3 - Crypto Currencies, NTFs, Block Chain





Why the Metaverse Needs AI

The Metaverse needs chatbots and AI to enable immersive interactions with users.

  • VR/AR user interfaces are based on speech, chat, and 3D interaction, blending well with chatbots
  • Metaverse is 24/7, businesses, events, online schools, and games that engage users in this space require chatbots and automated interactions
  • The Metaverse is multi-sensory, AI bots need to integrate NLP, vision, audio, spatial awareness, and navigation.





Why AI Needs the Metaverse

To evolve, AI needs an immersive multi-sensory environment which is the Metaverse. Existing AI models are single-purpose, single-sensory. True intelligence requires multi-sensory learning and a rich environment to interact with other intelligence entities.






The Bot Libre OMNI Deep Learning Model

The human brain is not a single neural network, but a kludge of multiple networks all interacting with each other at multiple levels. The concept of the Bot Libre OMNI model is that if you feed the output nodes and deep links from multiple deep learning models, actively processing continuous input from multiple senses into OMNI meta models, you can achieve a higher level of intelligence than possible from a single model.






Join Us

We are looking for businesses, organizations, and developers that are interested in being early adopters of the Metaverse technologies, in order to shape, play, participate, and even profit from the Metaverse, by working with us to drive our open source metaverse AI solution.

We will be starting our Bot Libre Metaverse Beta Program soon. If you are interested in applying to be part of the program please contact sales@botlibre.biz.
