Why are chatbots so important anyway?

You are probably wondering what Game of Thrones franchise has to do with chatbots and A.I. Before I explain this weird connection, I need to warn you that this article may contain some serious spoilers. Continue with your reading only if you are a passionate GoT follower, who watches new episodes immediately after they come out.

According to the When Will AI Exceed Human Performance? study, artificial intelligence has the capability to take over all human jobs by the year of 2060. This technology has already replaced dozens of customer service and sales job positions and helped businesses make substantial savings.

Apart from the obvious business advantages, chatbot creation can also be incredibly fun. You can create an artificial personality, with a strong attitude and a unique set of traits and flaws. It is like creating a new character for your favorite TV show. That is why I decided to explain the most important elements of the chatbot creation process by using the TV characters we all know and love (hate).


Why Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones is the most popular TV Show in the world. More than 10 million viewers watched the seventh season premiere, and you have probably seen internet users fanatically discussing the series’ characters, storyline, and possible endings.

Apart from being a Chatbot Copywriter, I am also a GoT fanatic, and I will base this chatbot on one of the characters from my favorite series. But before you find out the name of my bot, you should read a few lines about incredible free tools that allow us to build chatbots without coding.


Are chatbots expensive?

Today, you can create a chatbot, even if you don’t know how to code. Most chatbot building platforms offer at least one free plan that allows you to use basic functionalities, create your bot, deploy it to Facebook Messenger, and analyze its performance. Free plans usually allow your bot to talk to a limited number of users.

Why should you personalize your bot?

Every platform will ask you to write a bot’s name before you start designing conversations. You will also be able to add the bot’s photograph and bio. Personalizing your bot is the only way to ensure that you will stick to the same personality and storyline throughout the building process. Users often see chatbots as people, and by giving your bot an identity, you will make sure that it doesn’t sound like it has a multiple personality disorder.

We have chosen the Game of Thrones as a narrative for creating our bot. The huge hype that is being built around the story of the seven kingdoms has turned the characters into full-time celebrities. People are discussing their interests, behavior, wardrobe and love life on forums and social media. We have thought that connecting our chatbot with the character from the series will help readers to understand the process of chatbot creation.
