Powered by Meta, Wit.ai is a no-frills API that developers can deploy, modify, and improve to create natural-language platforms that support chatbots, smart homes, mobile apps, and devices.
Wit.ai is an API that allows developers to create conversational apps, devices, and chatbots using either voice or text. As Facebook's bot-building framework, Wit.ai can be used to build an advanced NLP-based chatbot for Facebook Messenger and other social media platforms. It can also be used to make multimodal mobile apps, manage smart devices, and create customizable experiences for wearable devices.
Bots and applications built using Wit.ai learn languages as they interact with users, which means that they can be used by businesses and individuals across the globe. What we like about Wit.ai is that it is free to use because it is an open-source platform. You can create, test, and deploy a whole array of applications, devices, and conversational bots based on your unique requirements for free. And if you're stuck at any point, then Wit.ai's community of over 200,000+ developers can help you out.
Creating applications and chatbots using Wit.ai requires basic development skills and familiarity with open-source platforms. This tool will not be a good fit for businesses that are looking for a simple, easy-to-setup, no-code chatbot solution.
