Soon conversational chatbots won’t just live in phones and computers, but assist industrial workers from within HoloLens.
Microsoft is big on bots. Last year, during Microsoft’s Build Developer Conference, CEO Satya Nadella declared that “bots are the new apps” and the company followed suit. Microsoft launched its Microsoft Bot Framework, a platform where developers can find the tools to create conversational bots of their own. These bots can communicate with Cortana, Microsoft’s virtual assistant, and be integrated into platforms like Skype and Slack. Need Cortana to order you a pizza? Have her take it up with Domino’s chatbot.
