My chatbot

I have an unusual chatbot that I’ve been working on for ages. I think that it’s approach is an improvement over AIML. I’d like to briefly explain how it works and see what you guys think.

This chatbot has a simple understanding of sentence structure and individual words. There are 2 main text files that hold most of this information, one for nouns and the other for the rest of the sentence that I call a template.

Here’s an example. I’ll leave out the details. Bob types “I am tired”. “am” is changed to “is” and a matching template is found:

* is *, handle_attribute_statement,1, 3

That template refers to a statement that assigns an attribute of some kind to something or someone, in this case Bob. A suitable function is called using the first and third word of the sentence as parameters. In that function, “tired” is looked up and is found to be a state:

tired > class: state

That information that Bob typed is added to the database using the following line:

#2 > state: tired

The #2 refers to Bob since the bot has previously assigned him an ID number.

Some time later the bot can ask “are you still tired?

If you would like to look at the files, they can be found here:

The template file is templates2.txt. The noun file, or main database is general.txt

Facebook Messenger Marketing bots are a lot like email marketing, but more effective. Facebook Messenger has a reach across the globe and higher levels of engagement and Facebook is already so much advanced with AI and ML capacities.

  1. First, you will need a Facebook Messenger bot. Make your Chatbot public and live for your targeted audience. You can convert your current Facebook page followers into your bot subscribers directly with advanced Facebook and Chatbot capabilities and educate your potential buyers about your presence on Facebook Messenger regularly.

  1. After that you will need an eye magnet, you heard it right! What is an eye magnate? What does it mean? Well, it may vary and will highly depend on what you are selling and what is your campaign.

Let me give you one example. If you are in a B2B business and selling services to the clients, you can catch their attention with these eye magnates –

  • Free E-book
  • Free service demo or trial
  • Free white paper
  • Online Ads, etc.

And if you are an e-commerce or restaurant owner, it will be –

  • Discount Coupons
  • Vouchers
  • Loyalty Cards
  • Ads

4. Facebook follows some strict rules and regulations for maintaining its audience’s privacy. So, you can’t just bombard your promotional messages and offers to your subscribers. You can send them promotional messages only within 24 hours of their last interactions.

But with some smart Opt-in techniques, you can at least open this 24-hour window for your potential buyers.

5. With proactive schedule messaging features, you can schedule these messages and send them out to your customers with the best quality content, best offering, and best medium to reach out to any person.
