Pros: First, a shout-out to the developers and especially the founder for taking lead in such an awesome product with great support. I've been with them solely for creating funnels on facebook messenger bot but ActiveChat wow me with more channels like telegram and the ability to integrate NLP easily! Drag-drop interface for creating skills/sequences with functions/fields is also improving. Impressed!
Woebot has a sense of humor, and I can see people who are having a bad day sticking with the attractive platform. Woebot also has skills — in no time, Woebot had identified my mood (with emoji support), identified three thoughts underlying my mood, and helped me see that these thoughts were “distortions,” which we replaced with more helpful thoughts.
Based on my responses, Wysa built me a “toolkit” with a variety of exercises “for better focus if I’m overwhelmed, to manage conflict, and to relax.” Some of these exercises are based around the practice of mindful meditation, which is an Eastern-influenced and evidence-based approach to managing a variety of psychological issues, especially stress and anxiety. I was also excited to see some yoga poses in my toolkit!
This chatbot is one the best AI chatbots and it’s my favorite too. Evidently it is the current winner of Loebner Prize. The Loebner Prize is an annual competition in artificial intelligence that awards prizes to the chatterbot considered by the judges to be the most human-like. The format of the competition is that of a standard Turing test. You can talk with Mitsuku for hours without getting bored. It replies to your question in the most humane way and understands your mood with the language you’re using.
