Facebook y los bots..
Earlier this year, the world went mad for bots when Facebook promised that a legion of automated assistants would help us tackle everyday life. Five months on, the company’s Messenger chief, David Marcus, has admitted that the idea “got really overhyped really, really quickly," and that the resulting bots have, so far, not performed too well. But there’s hope yet for these virtual assistants. A big turning point for Facebook’s bots is that they can now accept payments, which means that they can now get more things done. Meanwhile, in the same lab that created Siri, a new bot is being developed that will be able to sense your mood and respond accordingly. Using machine-learning, the system could learn to, say, slow down if you seem confused, or use different language if you appear frustrated. Which, for now, you probably are.
