Bots, bots, bots! We’ve heard about them, we’ve seen them, we’ve likely used them- maybe without even knowing it. In May, Facebook announced that there were over 300,000 bots on Facebook Messenger, and of course Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella famously announced in 2016 that “bots are the new apps.”
In this post, I am not going to talk about chatbots, partly because there’s not a whole lot new to say, but mostly because at CloudMinds, we’re working on what’s next. Our goal is to have a robot (an actual physical one!) in everyone’s home by the year 2025. That’s not that far away! And one of the first things you’ll want to do with your home robot is to have a conversation with it (OK, “robot, do the dishes” isn’t really a conversation per se, but you get the idea; you’ll talk to it)!
