Just ahead of the start of another new season of Game of Thrones, Catch Digital created the 'GoTBot' for Facebook Messenger to help fans catch themselves up on the show's latest happenings and more.
As well as being able to receive special details, jokes and Easter eggs from interacting with the chatbot, fans are able to ask questions that range from fun and silly to bizarre. The Game of Thrones chatbot was built using popular Google searches related to all things GoT, as well as artificial intelligence powered by Wit.ai. As the bot gathers more information, the smarter the system becomes.
AI chatbots have become a popular way to engage fans, especially in the entertainment industry, making it feel as though they have a deeper connection to the fictional characters and even the creators of a series.
