Building Chatbots at Crazy Lab Days – we are at the forefront of a revolution
Posted by Claus Jepsen
Unit4 is at the forefront of the next major technology shift. AI, Bots and self-driving systems will revolutionize the enterprise technology market thanks to an entirely new way of communicating with computers. For the first time in history, we can communicate in natural ways, and be guided to complete tasks in quicker, better ways. This new user experience is an attractive thing for companies that need to attract young talent.
Unit4 has already been publicly recognized as an innovator in this area, following the announcement of Wanda, our digital assistant. The Crazy Lab Days event in Oslo this week takes that work a step further as we challenge talented teams of Unit4 developers from around the world to develop new bots.
Since the dawn of computing, human beings have been using very unnatural means to convey our intentions, wishes and commands to computers. Despite evolution of the user experience over time, computing has remained a complex and unfriendly user environment for people, often providing a hindrance to work rather than helping us. The technology behind Chatbots brings exciting advances, enabling us to communicate with computers in the most natural way - through natural language (spoken and written).
Chatbots, programs you can text with like they're human, give us a completely new way of interacting with computers. This is not just evolution, but a revolution. This is the first time in history where we can use natural language to relay our experiences and knowledge. It’s something completely new that will massively impact the future of work and allow people to focus on what is really important, even increasing global productivity.
It means a lot to me to work for a company that gets this, that is at the forefront of technology development and user experience. The developers at Crazy Lab Days are building Chatbots that have practical use cases in our customers’ businesses today. This technology will reduce the administrative burden on people and our mission is to do that for our customers. We can all be proud that we’re building the bedrock on which business applications will be created in the future.
Crazy Lab Days honors our commitment to building systems for people. We’re creating the future and making history!
