All good things are #3 ... so more Bots! More innovation! More FUN!
Also we are switching location! Our host this time is the gande big blue IBM *TADA*
And here are the agenda points:
Welcome by David
followed by a quick hello from IBM
=== Talk: Mr. Hokify
- start a conversation and increase reengagement with a job search bot on FB messenger platform ===
There are different challenges to start a conversation with a fb messenger bot right now. Facebook aims to start a conversation through a FB page, but the awareness to people about this "feature" is less known. So what are other possibilities to increase the number of new conversations and how to convert these acquired users to customers for your product.

=== Showcase: zoomBot - how to give your bot conversation a human touch ===
When starting to programm our zoomBot one major questions was: How will it talk? If it has humor, which kind, how can we direct the conversation into a direction the bot understands and much more. All this without annoying our userbase. I will give insights into the process of developing the UX and how to test it.

=== Showcase #2 ===
=== Talk: IBM Watson
always comes up with an answer, but how? ===
Do you really want to frustrate your bot users as they are the first one to ask a new and unknown question? The Watson API Retrieve and Rank is a user-friendly service for bot developers who want to be able to include relevant responses to questions, where those answers are not predefined but found in some large collection of documents.
By Manuel Fuchs, IBM Cognitive Computing
Afterwards there will be DRINKS and FINGERFOOD at the really really really (!) awesome location @ IBM.
As always if you want to give a talk or present your bot please post in the event so David and Jakob can get in touch with you.
