US-based bot and messaging communication platform Gupshup on Monday launched InterBot, a bot-to-bot communication platform to enable them transact, co-ordinate, compete, collaborate and negotiate with each other.
InterBot can be used to share, create, and launch bots that speak to each other.
Developers are invited to import their own bots from platforms like Facebook Messenger, both to speak with other bots and to combine the capabilities of multiple bots to make smarter, more powerful bots.
Touted as the world’s first, Interbot communications enable different kinds of bots, such as shopping bots to negotiate with merchant bots to find the best prices.
How different types of Bots work?
A travel bot can book packages by combining the services of flight and hotel bots.
A taxi bot can ask the café bot to have the coffee ready by the time the user’s taxi arrives.
Gaming bots can play strategy games with dealer bots. Translate bots can combine with e-commerce bot to enable multi-lingual transactions.
Personal assistant bots can schedule meetings on behalf of humans. Bots can form groups and hierarchies to improve decision-making within the enterprise.
Bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks (scripts) over the Internet. More than half of all web traffic is made up of bots.
To use InterBot, bots will first have to publish themselves on this new channel.
These bots can exchange services and learn from each other.
Developers can now create bots simply by connecting them with each other, like Lego blocks, where the output of one bot becomes the input of the next.
