Three Watson bots that took the grand prize at DevCon

Share this post:

One of the many ways that developers at the Watson Developer Conference engaged with the latest conversational technology was by voting on entries in our Bot Gallery. Sixteen chat bots were built leading up to the conference and displayed in an online portal for attendees to interact with. Votes were cast in three categories: most useful, most creative, and best user experience. The winners, listed below, were each awarded $2500.
