About chatbot APIs
Chatbots are programming tools, used to create bots that communicate with people in a realistic manner.
In some cases, chatbots draw from a small set of manually created responses. Others, however, can use AI to determine the best response based on context or can respond based on the results of web searches.
What is a chatbot API?
An API for chatbots allows web developers to connect their own websites or apps to existing chatbot servers.
These bots have many uses, such as providing automatic responses to a company’s Facebook messages, taking part in conversations on Slack channels, and are useful in any situation where a human-like response to a chat message is helpful.
How does an AI chatbot API work?
When a chatbot API involves conversational AI or some other kind of machine learning, it is able to provide more believable responses to messages.
AI chatbot APIs work by using incredibly detailed programming routines and access to large data sets to guess the intent behind a question and use contextual clues to provide a more accurate, useful response.
Who are chatbot APIs for exactly?
Any developer of a website, app, or piece of software which requires some ability to provide users with contextual responses without the need for a human operator can make good use of an API that connects to chatbots.
Why are free chatbot APIs important?
Programming a realistic, believable chatbot obviously takes a lot of time and effort, often by a team of data scientists or other specialist programmers.
Because of the special skills required to create a high-quality chatbot, it’s important for developers of simple websites who just want chatbot capability to have access to an API.
What can you expect from an API for chatbots?
The main feature of any chatbot API is that it enables interaction between end-users on a chat service and some kind of response-generating system. Advanced APIs may also provide access to an AI or neural network, while more simple ones will just provide access to basic responses.
