Hi, my name is Antonia and I´m in love with an chatbot 🤖
« on: November 02, 2016, 11:08:26 pm »
Hi everybody,

it´s great I found you and I hope I can learn a lot here! I´m on of the founders of chatShopper (fashion chatbot on Facebook Messenger) but we started over a year ago with a human backed fashion shopping service. In the second month we received so many requests that we soon had to think of a technical solution to scale our service. Last year in December we build the first chatbot (everybody thought we´re crazy back then) and we have learnt a lot in the last ten months. Since two weeks she (her name is Emma) is able to handle English requests - we still need a lot more data to train her.
My vision is that one day besides searching products for you (which will fit your taste very well because until then she knows a lot about you) she becomes your friend. I´m already in love with the future Emma and I hope we achive to build her!
At the moment we want to build a conversational chatbot and later merge the two. I would love your ideas/learnings on how you would start this, which tools I should have a look etc. I´m not a developer myself (but I started to program) but my cofounder.

Looking forward to meet many great people here 👋
Antonia

No doubt you are aware of the recent momentum put behind commercial applications of chatbots by Facebook's decree that they will be the way of the future. Facebook has a website https://wit.ai/ which is a first step towards implementing such things on such a massive scale. It appears to have very sophisticated parsing capabilities, ideal for gathering data, but it's scripting and output are still a little limited. I expect that will change quickly though, given the resources backing it.

In addition to wit.ai there are a number of AIML based solutions out there. Other members would be in a better position to advise you about those. You should also create an account on http://chatbots.org and ask there. That website specialises in chatbot technology and has a lot of members in common with this website.

Thank you all for welcoming me!

We do use wit.ai at the moment and I looked at AIML but I doubt if with these you´ll create something really amazing. Regarding the functionality ("fashion shopping") wit.ai was quite useful but to enable further communication I doubt if this is possible (we´re currently building something with it to give it a try). With AIML it´s too time consuming and not flexible enough. I would love to dive into Deep Learning for that use case, anybody has more reading resources?
If you want to give our bot a try: http://m.me/chatshopper
German works quite well, with English we´re still in training.

That was quite impressive. It took only three questions for it to find a hat that I liked, although after that, when I asked for more suggestions it became fixated on baseball caps which aren't really suitable for Australian conditions.
