Bot and chat company Gupshup today announced that it will make Microsoft Cognitive Services available for Interbot, its bot-to-bot communication channel.
The move will bring computer vision, text sentiment analysis, and Bing image recognition to Interbot, a platform for bots that talk to each other, said Gupshup CEO Beerud Sheth.
He made the announcement at Build, Microsoft’s annual developer conference being held May 10-12 in Seattle.
The AI services are the first to be offered on the platform that launched last month. Developers can upload their own bot to Interbot or use bots that have been uploaded and shared on the platform.
Interbot can piece together bot functions to combine functionality and AI smarts.
“So if you think about normally how difficult it is to combine services like this. Here, once there’s a lot of these bots set up already, it’s literally like combining Lego blocks,” Sheth said.
Microsoft Cognitive Services today launched four new customizable services Wednesday to bring the total number provided by Microsoft to 29.
The Gupshup bot creation platform is used by more than 30,000 developers, according to the company.
