Build A Chatbot
Chatbots are online personas that interact with people via the Messenger app — think of them like a virtual assistant. In this project, you will identify ways to add social value in your community by using artificial intelligence as you customize the chatbot's responses and personality.
You'll develop your idea into a working project using “Scrum” — a method used by real engineers to make innovative ideas come to life!
