We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the all-new Botpress! (Available now)
Today is the day our team’s efforts come to fruition. We’ve been hard at work on a complete core redesign to provide our community with the first ChatGPT-native bot-building platform. This new release will revolutionize bot building in two ways:
The new Botpress completely reimagines the entire bot-building process. Until now, we have suffered through a broken chatbot-building process that needed a warehouse of training data only to get subpar results. It usually took an army of developers and conversational designers to build bots. Now anyone can build powerful chatbots on their own.
The convergence of our platform and generative AI reduces the cost & time of bot building by orders of magnitude. It brings the number of viable chatbot use cases to infinity. Over are the days of bots being reserved to support and lead generation.
If you missed the webinar going more in depth on these new features, you can find the recording below.
Since Botpress first launched in 2016, we’ve had 300,000+ users build over 1.5 million bots that powered over a billion conversations. Our open-source community has cemented us as a marquee tool for developers and builders trying to create complex chatbots. Many of you joined us in 2020 in our amazement when we all got to first interact with GPT. From that moment, the whole team at Botpress immediately got to work; anticipating LLMs’ trajectory, completely re-architecting our platform, and preparing for this day.
Last year, we released OpenBook, the first commercial NLU engine powered by LLMs. As the underlying LLMs continued to improve, we knew they were ready to undertake a larger part of the bot-building process.
Our experience with OpenBook taught us how a platform needed to be built to leverage LLMs fully and also what LLMs need from a platform to create amazing chatbots. It’s with this in mind that we reimagined the new Botpress so you can:
With ChatGPT reaching 100M monthly users in two months, the timing is right. It is now possible to build human-level chatbots, assistants, or copilots. This marks the end of the “terrible chatbot” era.
Today we released the first version of the new Botpress. However, this is just the beginning – 100s of integrations and 5 major announcements will be coming soon. Stay tuned.
We look forward to seeing what you build!
Happy bot building,
The Botpress team
