You’re at a museum and want to find out more about an artwork you like? Then just ask Albot, the art history chatbot. He will access the museum’s metadata for you and answer simple questions about the artwork, like: Who’s the artist? What’s the title? Which people are depicted? At least that’s the vision of one of the project groups at Coding Dürer. They start with Albrecht Dürer’s “Allerheiligenbild” and try to formulate questions. By extracting keywords, Albot can understand questions and find answers. The team still tries to figure out which chatbot to use. Dexter or the Microsoft bot framework seem to offer great solutions.
