Too many bots for the “low hanging fruit” use cases. Many bots aim at solving the first obvious “problems” like meeting management or on-demand services interfaces
Are Chat Bots a Feature or a Product?

Nice post, offers many thought-provoking questions!

I understand what you mean by “low hanging fruit use cases” (they are the obvious area of initial application). However, I am sometimes wondering whether they are really that “low hanging”? For instance, has raised $34m in funding and has been fine-tuning the algorithms behind their meeting assistant for over 2 years now. 2 years! They still haven’t moved from limited beta to a public release, they are still reliant on two dozen “AI trainers.” And we are talking about a super narrow domain here: one simple task (scheduling meetings) in one language (English) via one channel (emails). This is genuinely hard!

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
