AI BOTS & TOOLS
[ FACEBOOK MESSENGER ] VISABOT visabot.co
If you’re looking to emigrate to the US, using a robot to help you organise your paperwork might just give you a better chance of success. It might not get the same 64% success-rate as the UK-based parking-fine lawyerbot Do Not Pay, but VisaBot will help you apply for and get an O-1 or B-2 Extension visa and won’t cost you a cent. Plugging directly into Facebook’s Messenger, you can even apply while you chat with friends, making the process even less laborious.
[ FACEBOOK MESSENGER, TELEGRAM ] ICON8 BOT icon-ai.com
If you cast your mind back to the middle of 2015 when Google’s Deep Dream image recognition software and control scheme was unleashed on the internet, you’d realise just how popular and powerful AI software photo manipulation can be. Icon8 Bot isn’t quite as hyperactive as Deep Dream, but this Messenger and Telegram bot has a few preconfigured algorithm filters that will tweak selfies to look more creative.
[ SLACK ] ANGRY SHAKESPEARE angryshakespeare.skeevisarts.com
Everyone knows that chat-platform Slack was created solely to give colleagues a hard time on a slightly less-traceable platform than your work email, and thanks to Angry Shakespeare, now even the most prudish and unimaginative profanity watchers can dig the boot in too. If you have the urge to call one of your colleagues a ‘greasy tallow-catch’, it’s just a matter of using the /insult Slackbot command to unleash Angry Shakespeare on them.
[ FACEBOOK MESSENGER ] MOTIVATE BOT botlist.co/bots/1687-motivatebot
If you’re feeling down or a little unmotivated, sometimes all it takes is an inspiring string of words or a funny joke to snap you out of that mindset. Motivate Bot is an AI quote dispensary that plugs into Facebook’s Messenger app to shoot out a new motivating quote every morning. If you can’t live off the one quote a day, you can write to the messenger bot with any of the five commands it knows to get even more inspiring, motivating or funny quotes out of it.
