10 Tools to Build your Own Chatbots

10 Tools to Build your Own Chatbots | Asp.Net | Scoop.it

While making a robot sounds complicated for most people, creating a chatbot is way, way easier. The term chatbot stands for an Artifical Intelligence (AI) that automatically chats with internet users, and answers the questions they ask.

A chatbot can function in many different ways. Depending on its type, a chatbot can talk to you or provide customer service, tell you what the current weather, and even contest parking tickets (successfully). For businesses, chatbots could respond to a customer’s question and help you do your job.

The question now is where do you get or how do you create a chatbot? Well, these are the chatbot creator apps out there you can try. Most of them don’t require programming knowledge to use....

Google Is the New Microsoft. Uh-Oh. | Katie Benner | BloombergView.com

Google Is the New Microsoft. Uh-Oh. | Katie Benner | BloombergView.com | Asp.Net | Scoop.it

Google prints money. It made $56 billion in revenue and earned $13 billion in its last full fiscal year.

All of that cash has kept Google shareholders happy for a very long time, so happy that they didn’t seem to care when the company opened up the door to competitors or missed a few pivotal trends. Even as Google's growth slows and the company matures, I’m sure that shareholders could stay happy for a little while longer. Analysts say the company will add $31 billion in search revenue alone over the next five years.

But money doesn’t mean that all is well in Mountain View, California. Tiny fissures have appeared in Google's façade. Its share of the U.S. search market fell to 75.2 percent in December from 79.3 percent a year ago. That piece of the pie could get smaller this year if Apple cancels its deal to use Google as its default mobile search engine. That would be a big loss. Citigroup analyst Mark May says that 60 percent of Google's mobile search revenue in 2014 came from the Apple deal.

Google stock has underperformed. It’s down 11 percent over the last year, versus a 14 percent gain for the Nasdaq and a 36 percent gain for Facebook.

The Google of 2015 is not unlike the early 2000s Microsoft – a hugely profitable company that is having a hard time innovating around its core product. Unless something is done, it will likely go through spasms of flailing and discontent that will be familiar to longtime veterans of the Redmond, Washington software giant.

For all of its innovation, best captured by Eric Schmidt’s “How Google Works,” Google is a 55,000-person behemoth, and it’s nearly impossible for any company to move quickly and creatively at that size. Among tech giants, only Apple has managed to innovate after becoming so big. Hewlett Packard? Nope. IBM? No way.

Despite all the talk about Google’s much vaunted moonshots - self-driving cars and Google Glass, internet-connected balloons and drone deliveries - the company is still basically a purveyor of cheap online ads that it sells at massive volume against the things that we search for online. Advertising accounted for $51 billion of the company’s $56 billion in revenue last year.

The most valuable thing that the official moonshot incubator, Google X, has produced isn’t innovative products that will maintain Google’s search dominance. It’s good PR. It codified the idea that Google is always trying new stuff and failing because that’s what true, crazy, bountiful innovation looks like.

With the Google X mythology, Google has cover for all sorts of (sometimes expensive) failures, including the aforementioned smart glasses. It also has cover for failed products that could be more germane to the core business' success, like social networks (R.I.P. Google Plus and Google Buzz), payments (Google Wallet, in remembrance) and storage (wither Google Cloud Platform?).

The willingness to fund a division like Google X means that Google wants to test the boundaries in lines of business where success doesn’t really count in the here and now. But that hasn’t saved Google from stagnating in ways that do.

How to Build Your Own #Chat #Bot in #Slack when you don't know how to code software

How to Build Your Own #Chat #Bot in #Slack when you don't know how to code software | Asp.Net | Scoop.it

Bots are handy little assistants that hang out in your app, wait for commands, and then find or create the thing you need. They're another way to use your favorite apps without needing to open those apps, running automated tasks for you. They're the big new thing—a core part of Slack, Facebook Messenger, and Telegram's newest features—and yet they seem too complicated to build and use.

Turns out, bots are simple enough for anyone to make. Here's how you can make a bot to do anything you want in a few minutes without any coding—along with a dozen examples of bots that real teams are using today, and a Slack bot cheat sheet for a handy reference to help build your own bots.

A detailed how-to article on how to build a chat bot using Zapier, a popular online programming automation tool.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Robots or "bots" will become more and more common in the near future as they integrate seamlessly into our most common chat programs such as Facebook messenger. They will become popular because they allow any company to have a presence inside popular mobile apps and do not require any installation from users: they just type in requests and get responses in return. Directions, orders, and information will be streamed by those autonomous programs to help you fulfill daily tasks. This article highlights an important aspect of bot programming: they will become easier and easier to create, especially for common and recurring problems.

I have duplicate records in my source which I want to redirect to a separate destination in my data flow task. Most solutions like the Aggregate Transformation or the Sort Transformation with "Remove rows with duplicate sort values" selected, will remove the records instead of redirecting them.

 

If there are three identical records (two columns), then two of them should be redirected as duplicate so that I can capture them in an error destination.

DevOps emerged from an effort by businesses to respond more rapidly to market changes. The new approach was designed to ensure that high-quality updated software gets into the hands of users more quickly. Continuous delivery requires that everyone—from developers to testers to employees in user experience, product and operations—collaborate effectively throughout the delivery process, using multiple feedback loops.

Here are some highlights in the short and eventful history of DevOps.
