Gupshup, the bot platform, announced today it has made Microsoft Cognitive Services available on InterBot, its bot-to-bot communications channel. Developers will now be able to quickly and easily incorporate the intelligent capabilities of Cognitive Services to build bots for Microsoft Teams, Skype and Skype for Business, Cortana and more.
“Interbot helps developers make their bots smarter by enabling them to tap into the collective intelligence of other bots and services, such as those offered by Microsoft Cognitive Services,” explained Beerud Sheth, CEO of Gupshup. “Microsoft has openly embraced the developer ecosystem, and we are proud to collaborate with them to bring the power of Microsoft Cognitive Services to the InterBot platform.”
Irving Kwong, Group Program Manager, Microsoft Corp said, “In the growing bot development ecosystem, our mutual customers rely on platforms like InterBot to provide the necessary tools to create intelligent and engaging bots. We are pleased to see Gupshup make Microsoft Cognitive Services available on InterBot, and help further our goal of bringing greater intelligence and simplicity to the bot development process.”
With InterBot, developers create more advanced bot interactions by giving these bots the ability to communicate, collaborate, compete and chain with one another. Utilizing InterBot’s simple interface, developers can create or import bots to the platform and then connect them to other bots in order to provide new and wholly unique functionality and services.
