In our digital age, Chatbots are gaining popularity among the industries. Basically, the chatbot is a program powered by Artificial Intelligence to mimics human discussions. Corporations are using chatbots to implement customer support on their services or websites and work as knowledge assistants and business advisors.

Popular chatbots include IBM’s Watson, LiveChat, Dailogflow, chatfuel, and LivePerson to name just a few. But even if you don’t own one of these things, you might have interacted with one of these chatbots without even knowing it. Many institutions are currently implementing this technology especially for information gathering tasks or customer service purposes.
