Sitting next to a Gen Xer on their phone versus a Gen Zer on their phone is not just chat that is streets apart; it's another planet.

Here’s a rundown on everything bot related.

Bots are taking over the world. That sounds like the theme of a sci-fi flick but that’s the reality of the world today. Companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft are pouring their energies into developing chat bots that can interact intelligently with people because people spend much more time on messaging apps than on websites or social networks.
