I fell in love with coding when I made my first HTML based website back in middle school. No CSS; just me and HTML brackets for hours on end. Since then I’ve dabbled in various programming languages. In early 2018 my friends and I set out to design a Discord chatbot. The ease with which a chatbot can promote platform interaction in ways other mediums can’t captured my attention. Now I create chatbots in two different mediums: node.js chatbots for Discord and IBM’s Watson Assistant powered chatbots for WordPress sites. These bots range in ability, and I am perpetually upgrading them as I learn more.
Discord is the first platform I learned to design chatbots for. I now have a selection of pre-built options I can put into any chatbot I make there, including command based actions, text scanning, randomized responses, a “swear jar,” new member greetings, status messages, and more.
I love the simplicity of setting up bots with Discord, and will continue to advance my skills with the Discord.js API. Currently, I am working on integrating other APIs with Discord’s to design stream alerts, natural language interpretation, and more.
As opposed to the heavy coding involved in my Discord chatbots, WordPress chatbots powered by IBM Watson Assistants require less coding and more logic work. My Creator-Aide chatbots for streamers’ websites are designed to provide quick answers to site visitors about who the streamer is, when they stream and where, and where the streamer can be found online.
While these chatbots come with some formatting limitations due to how Watson’s dialog builder works, they are super powerful in understanding questions and providing answers.
