Microsoft is testing a new chat bot, Tay.ai, that is aimed primarily at 18- to 24-year-olds in the US.
Tay was built by the Microsoft Technology and Research and Bing teams as a way to conduct research on conversational understanding.
It's been a long-anticipated addition to what was an already successful video chat package, made possible by the new application framework in the 3.0 release.
It can also entertain chatters who may be waiting for their conversation partner to respond too! Chat Robot can pull up some intriguing Wikipedia entries on topics of general interest.
It will present summaries for keywords or phrases in public or private chat for your information, and will helpfully include a link to further reading. If an article does not exist in your language on Wikipedia, it will still try to return the most relevant English entry.
Never lose a quiz or a chat debate again - simply ask the bot, and it will help! If your flash chat language is set to something other than English, than all Wiki questions to the bot will go to your localised version of the encyclopedia. Of course, to take advantage of this Chat Robot enhancement, Wikipedia must have at least one entry in your local language.
For those who want to filter the people that they are randomly selected to chat with, Wow Chat has an optional premium upgrade that you can choose to purchase.
This upgrade will give you the ability to filter your potential chatmates based on their age, gender, and location.
Chat Robot is clever enough to request, rotate and refresh the feed by itself.
