Artificial intelligence (AI) dates back to the year 1950, when Alan Turing developed the Turing test to evaluate a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour that could be equivalated to those of humans. Since then, the field has exploded.
In businesses today, AI can be found in many forms including intelligent conversational chatbots. These bots are becoming increasingly popular, with over 30,000 chatbots (as of 2016) existing on various messaging interfaces. These chatbots cater to an audience of 4.1 billion users, most of whom are on these platforms every day.
