Facebook has occasionally had an aggressive relationship with the platforms that it exists on – it has been gradually becoming the internet itself for many people, and it has been argued that the company is gradually eating the entire web.
The company was rumoured to be launching its own phone some time ago but has since concentrated on extending its reach onto those made by other companies.
That means they must now suffer the indignities unethical bosses inflict on their human assistants, especially sexual harassment.
As bots do more of our bidding, their algorithms are spending more time parrying flirtations, dodging personal questions, and dealing with darker forms of sexual harassment.
Eventually that same relationship might extend to the Facebook app itself.
The company has been gradually moving out of relying on the app – instead “unbundling” its features into their own devoted apps such as Messenger and recent acquisitions Whats App and virtual reality firm Oculus.
Colombina is a user-friendly framework for development of electronic assistants personalities or chatbots for aggregation of any types of data, processing it, sending commands to connected devices and generating human-friendly responses.
But the company hopes that they will eventually be powered by AI and will let people conduct normal conversations with bots rather than customer service phone lines.
It's probably more likely to be awkward, rude, confusing, and elusive — just like this personality.
This personality is male and expects to be talking with a female (you). Mostly insults and trolling, with lots of bad spelling and bad grammar.
Now some banks want to spark a new virtual love affair of sorts, hoping customers will embrace the chatbots they will soon offer. But that also limits the ease of use that chatbots promise.
Mind you, it’s strictly platonic and electronic: for customers, a chance to enjoy the convenience and ease of getting financial information through advanced voice communication on a mobile phone. In Singapore, India and Indonesia, banks continue to roll out chatbot services that let customers ask, “What’s my balance? “If a customer is going to enter a lot of codes to identify themselves, they might as well just log on to online banking,” Oglesby says.
