A Discussion On Building Bots

A Discussion On Building Bots
By Roger Chen (@rogerbchen)

I was recently asked to moderate a panel on building chatbots. I was joined by a number of entrepreneurs in the NYC chatbot ecosystem - Marah Lidey, Co-CEO/Co-Founder at Shine Text; Jake Cohn, CEO/Founder at And Chill; David Hu, VP, Engineering & Strategy at Dexter;Max Koziolek, CEO/Founder at spectrm).  We discussed a variety of the issues in bot-building today.

The biggest takeaway for me is that bot developers and businesses looking to use bots are still trying to figure out the right combination of technologies and use cases that will resonate with end users. We're still in the early days, and it will be interesting to see what killer apps emerge from the noise.
