Conversational bots

The project represents a much wider effort to build a new breed of computing system that is truly conversational. At companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Salesforce as well as Microsoft, the hope is that this technology will provide smoother and easier ways of interacting with machines — easier than a keyboard and mouse, easier than a touch-screen, easier than Siri and other digital assistants now on the market, which are still a long way from fluid conversation.
