Are chatbots the next new hot thing in tech? Well, yes and no, a lot of hype for something sticking around since late 90s, but they are smarter and (sometimes) "more human" these days, thanks to more accessible AI algorithms in speech processing, NLP, computer vision, etc. 
In this session we will touch on their history and I will show how you can build a simple, but smart enough bot using Microsoft Bot framework. You'll learn how to deploy it and make it available in different apps (FB Messenger, Skype, Telegram, etc). And you can take it further and ... maybe develop that one bot, which will make you rich, or at least entertain your friends!
