The best bot on Messenger recently got better. We have grouped up with Chatfuel and Bitext to add Bitext’s NLP Middleware to the TechCrunch Messenger bot. This improved version brings in functionality for improved natural language understanding, conversational interaction and unique features like negative understanding. You can go through our new and improved Messenger bot here.
To get to the new functionality more better, here are some instances of what the recent version of the bot can do.
1) Understands more natural language questions
More complicated but natural questions, like “show me the latest about SpaceX”, “do you have anything about Google” and “give me Facebook news” or are now recognized by the bot.
2) Conversational double objective
You can now utilize the word “and” to search for news that shares multiple behaviours. For instance, you can type “I want news on Microsoft and Apple” to find news that particularly mentions both companies. Another instance would be “show me news about Messenger and bots.”
3) Conversational negation
This permits you to exclude certain items in your search. For example, if you wanted to surf news about Amazon but did not want to see anything about Whole Foods you could type “I want news about Amazon but not Whole Foods.” Another instance would be “show me news about Apple but not iPhones.”
We are also looking forward in adding some other updates, including conversational pagination and video search. There is also a chance that we might bring this bot to Slack. More to appear.
