Chatbot and NLP Basics
Practical Seminar

Chatbots – a buzzword which is often heard nowadays. But what exactly is a chatbot? A chatbot is a computer program which simulates a conversation via text or audio. They work like a search engine, scan data for keywords and answer with the most matching keywords. Some work with avatars to simulate a human conversation, others just take simple orders.

More and more companies use them in their daily communication with their customers and since the biggest tech companies, like Google, Amazon, Microsoft or Apple focus on Artificial Intelligence, chatbots will get smarter.
People already started using them at home to delegate simple tasks, like asking for the weather report, playing specific songs or switching lights on and off. These digital assistants are in fact chatbots.
