In the year 2016, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook, the unchallengeable king of tech invested greatly on chat bot – a program used to simulate a user in games or during a chat. Although, it is too early to judge whether investing in bot is right or not, but we can see the chatbot is not widely accepted by users.

How does Dexter work?
The Dexter platform looks like a blogging platform such as WordPress and blogger. Similar to blogging sites, it also has a large window for building and the tools needed for creating bots are well arranged around the composing window – top, sides, and bottom. To build a chatbot, what you need to do is to type a message that a bot will reply to – like when your friend says hello, Hi or other salutation. Then, type the reply in the space provided – like “I’m fine”, “How may I help you” and so on.
However, before you publish your bot, you can test if it is just as you want it or not in a window provided on the right side corner of the platform.
