One of the more-covered technologies at Microsoft’s Build 2016 event was machine intelligence, specifically those coming in the way of “chatbots,” technology that integrates into various communications services to provide answers to user queries. One of Microsoft’s newest chatbots is Project Murphy, which seeks to answer “what-if” questions using the company’s Cortana Intelligence Suite.
At first, Project Murphy was available on Skype, Facebook Messenger, and Telegram. Now, it looks like Microsoft is extending support to Kik and Slack (via MSPU).
The buttons can’t be clicked yet, but at some point Kik and Slack users will join the rest in chatting with Project Murphy. If you’ve used this particular Microsoft chatbot, let us know in the comments what you think of its machine intelligence so far. We’ll let you know as soon as the “robot with imagination” is available on Kik and Slack.Further reading: Bots, Chatbots, communications, Facebook Messenger, Kik, Messaging, Microsoft, Skype, Slack, Telegram
