If you’ve ever made a bot, you are aware that channels (Messenger, Kik, Slack, Skype, SMS, emails,etc) don’t all work the same, and that you cannot possibly manage to write code that takes full advantage of each platform’s features.
That’s why Recast.AI created Bot Connector. With only one integration in your code to reach any channel, and a standard message format, you’ve never saved this much time in your bot development.
Bot Connector is a free-to-use open-source project where you have the entire control of the channels supported. Missing one? Create it. Want to improve one? Good ahead. On the other side, the Recast.AI teams make sure the API is always on top of it’s game.
Today, Bot Connector supports Messenger, Kik and Slack. You can register here and get started. If you want to add your own channel, you’ll find the procedure here!
Today live on Product Hunt, Bot Connector joins the Recast.AI Bot Creation Suite, alongside Bot Understanding and Bot Builder, to bring the startup one step closer to its goal: make complex bot development easy and intuitive for developers. It is by developing a natural language and machine learning technology that the startup is leading the conversational interfaces sector.
Founded in September 2015, Recast.AI is a collaborative artificial intelligence platform allowing developers to easily create conversational interfaces such as chatbots.
With more than 5,000 developers using the platform who have created more than 8,000 bots in less than 10 months, Recast.AI capitalizes on this technological and user experience expertise by assisting businesses wishing to implement new interfaces powered by conversation.
Having received 2 millions euros in funding from business angels and the Banque Publique d’Investissement (BPI) in its first year of existence, Recast.AI is working to demonstrate the considerable potential of conversational interfaces such as bots through highly efficient language, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies.
