Bringing Anzac Heroes to Life with AI Chatbots on Facebook

#artificialintelligence

The Wizeline bots team has partnered News Corp Australia to launch the AnzacLive chatbot, an innovative way to share history with a modern audience. Journals from one of the soldiers, Archie Barwick, have been powered by technology. Thanks to Facebook Messenger meets Natural Language Processing, Archie is able to respond in real-time to questions and keep up with conversations. The app, built by the Wizeline bots team, is powered by Natural Language Processing technology with Wit.ai along with a database of topics based on Archie's real diary entries interpreted by the editors at News Corp Australia.
