GoChatbot

Learn how to create your very own chatbots in this comprehensive goChatBot course!

Chatbots - also known as “conversational agents” - are Artificial Intelligence (AI) software that can simulate a conversation (or a chat) with a real person in English or their spoken language of choice. In the modern era, Chatbots have also become the popular channel of interaction for many businesses to answer customers’ enquiries and perform simple tasks, such as managing reservations and providing information, to help reduce cost and improve customer experience at the same time.

With the rapid advancements in AI, Natural Language Processing and the global popularity of WhatsApp, Line, WeChat, Telegram and other text messaging apps, it is now much easier to develop and deploy a chatbot on your own with low or no cost at all!

Please bring along your own laptops with Google Chrome installed. Internet access will be provided.
