The Lightning Pitch: Botpress, the ultimate bot framework
Headquarters: Quebec City, Canada
Founding Team: Crafty Sylvain Perron and AI engineer, Danny Fortin-Simard.
A bot is an application that performs an animated task. With Botpress, they like to call themselves the WordPress of Chatbots. With social media, messaging, artificial intelligence and technology all amalgamated together via Botpress anyone can create and use modules they provide.
In non-tech language the way the platform works is if there’s something you want your bot to to do and it’s already out there in the tech world, there should already be a module created for it. If not, let’s hope you can create that module and share it on Botpress for someone else to use. Everyone wins right?
So ultimately it isn’t here to compete with anyone. It’s a modular platform that integrates with other popular tools and frameworks such as Slack, Messenger, and Kik to make things easy flowing.
