Well, we’ve officially come full circle. The future of technology is being driven by next-generation AOL chat rooms powered by Slack, and next-generation chat bots championed by Facebook. They say “everything old is new again,” and it appears as though that’s indeed the case.

All (half-)joking aside, Facebook on Tuesday made a series of big announcements at its F8 developer conference, and one of the biggest was the hotly anticipated launch of a new bot platform for Facebook Messenger. These machine-powered chat accounts allow companies to interact with Facebook Messenger users without, you know, actually having to interact with Facebook Messenger users. There’s definitely a great deal of potential there, and the first wave of chat bots has already begun to roll out.

Welcome to the future!
