In this blog post, we’ll discuss how Botpress enables developers to build their own AI chatbot that can be connected to custom knowledge and deployed on websites and messaging channels like WhatsApp and Telegram.
What is Botpress?
Botpress is a browser-based AI chatbot builder. The platform abstracts away the boilerplate code infrastructure needed to get a chatbot up and running, and its drag-and-drop interface allows developers and non-developers alike to build, deploy, and manage production-grade chatbots.
Some of its key features include:
Built-in Natural Language Processing tasks such as intent recognition, spell checking, entity extraction, and slot tagging
A visual conversation designer with a drag-and-drop interface
A built-in emulator to test your conversation in real time
Easily deploy your chatbot to popular messaging channels like Slack, WhatsApp, and Telegram
What Can AI Chatbots do?
A successful chatbot project begins with a simple question: what are you trying to accomplish?
For customer service teams, that can be reducing the amount that a customer query reaches a live agent, and a reduction in overall ticket volume. For students, schools, and educators, it can be introducing new learners to AI tools.
If you're just looking to test out the visual chatbot builder, then exploration is essential. You can learn from one of our prebuilt templates, or hop into the studio to start building your own.
