I often feel empty when I find myself not doing anything ‘new’. Well when I say new, it doesn’t always mean it should be brand new to entire world, but rather to myself.
Idea is not only to keep myself engaged and satisfied but also to tell that I am doing something new and there is still a lot to do. Lots and lots of my learning or initiatives are output of this same feeling or situation I put myself into.
On same line, AI and in particular Chat Bot idea was ruling my mind for quite some time, similar to what it is doing to most of the tech world. I got inspiration from few chat bots, few blogs on medium and that was enough. I tried many platforms which are readily available like Botsify, cloning github repositories, Smooch, Howdy, Chatfuel, etc. I crossed out option of cloning github repo to keep it somewhat original and few others for lack of usability and configurability. Chatfuel was the final choice.
Considered multiple mediums like telegram, facebook messenger, sms, etc. and finally settled for Facebook messenger considering its reach.
After multiple attempts with different available resources, here is the final draft(will keep on enhancing it). Please give it a try and share your feedback. This chatbot is my personal assistant bot and it talks about me on both personal and professional front.Chat with Bot
