Do you feel overwhelmed?
Are the constant birth, marriage, birthday, new job, announcements on Facebook too much to keep up with?
I mean you’re a busy person, you want to keep in touch with all of your friends, but there is just not enough time to give everyone the attention they deserve.
It’s enough to make you want to quit Facebook!
Well help may be on the way!
This weekend at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon in New York, a participant named Irene Chang came up with the idea for a chat bot that mimics YOU!
It uses Cisco Spark and IBM Watson to learn how you prefer to communicate (which phrases, emojis, gifs, etc…) and participates in your chats on Facebook for you!
It is only in its infancy but you can see where this could be super useful. Well I guess it depends on if your friends would be offended that you had a robot talking in your stead, and if then everyone participating in the group chat was using bots and a whole conversation was happening without any humans involved…
Okay I see how this might be bad.
Still cool though.
