This is probably one of the most intriguing and compelling bot-driven experiences I've seen so far. The bot was created by PullString, creators of the eponymous software, for the British TV series Humans. They previously created Humani: Jessie’s Story and the Call of Duty Messenger bot:
The Personal Synthetics bot drops you into the middle of a narrative — in which you are returning your synth, which has started acting up (you'll have to watch the show for the entire context). Curiously enough, Personal Synthetics's customer support reps are themselves synths and will guide you through the process. Can you see where this might lead? What's most compelling about this use case is how natural it feels, and how well the bot is scripted. It doesn't feel forced, and actually feels conversational. Other bots achieve similar levels of conversational engagement, but eventually hit a wall. This bot feels targeted, well-contained, personable, and well-executed. I expect to see more well written bots (consider that members of the team hail from Pixar; @orenjacob worked on Ratatouille, among other films) will surface from Pullstring in the future.
