5000 easy steps to build a bot – Today we know how to do everything. Almost. Just look for a video on YouTube that explains in a few simple steps how to do anything and … voila, that’s it.
“HOW TO SAY NO” VS “HOW TO SAY YES”
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that looking for “how to say no” on YouTube you get about 1.7 billion matches against the “paltry” 400 million hits for “how to say yes”.
Our culture lives in the illusion that it is more important to learn to say no and at the same time delude ourselves that we can skip the learning process that allows us to master the tools we need to work.
IS THERE THE PERFECT RECIPE TO BUILD A BOT?
Fortunately, many videos that promise to work miracles in 5 simple steps are hoaxes destined to make us understand that, as important as it is, a good recipe is not enough to become a chef.
I say fortunately because even making good chatbots is anything but simple and platforms like crafter.ai that help simplify the process actually hide highly complex technologies with which it is dangerous to fake our role as experts.
MACHINE LEARNING IN UNDERSTANDING CONTEXTS
The use of Machine Learning to manage the understanding of contexts within a conversation is a fitting example. Today there are few platforms that make proper use of it.
Most of the platforms on the market use rules-based systems that, as the size and complexity of the models grow, quickly highlight their limits with a dramatic impact on the maintenance costs of the systems.
