All your Game of Thrones questions, answered.
The GoTBot is a Facebook chatbot that was created to remind you that you know nothing.
Who is this bald guy from Game of Thrones? Is Thoros of Myr dead? Will Daenerys and Jon Snow get together? Did I spell Daenerys right? Everybody’s thinking it, so why be afraid to ask the obvious questions?
Created by Catch, a digital creative agency in London, GoTBot is a Facebook chatbot created in solidarity with all the secondary characters you forgot about, plus all the titles and heirs that you never knew existed. It’s for those of you who realise that, in fact, you know nothing.
How Does It Work?
Say hello and the GoTBot will come to the rescue. Whether you’re watching the new season premiere or you’re having an argument with your friends about who the bald guy in Game of Thrones is, ask and it shall be answered.
Questions like “Who is Varys?” will result in a photo of Varys, his title and all sorts of other juicy information about your favourite characters. It’s always nice to put a face to the name! And who can keep up with the death toll in Game of Thrones? GoTBot’s “Dead or Alive” feature will come in handy when you just can’t remember if that one forgotten Tully is dead yet.
But don’t underestimate GoTBot… It knows more than you expect. Just try asking about Daenerys and Jon Snow’s (possible? probable?) relationship. Everyone’s entitled to their Game of Thrones theories…
The A.I. of natural language processing of GoTBot is handled by the Wit.ai service. We begin by teaching Wit.ai example questions and, as we feed it information, it learns understand the user intent.
We’re also using the Google Cloud for spell checking and analytics. These analytics will help us improve the bot, e.g. the more questions users ask, the more data we can capture and ensure that we update GoTBot so that it can answer these queries.
GoTBot was almost born by mistake, starting from a simple “Dead or Alive?” Game of Thrones question around the Catch studio. If only there was someone who had all the answers. Wait a minute….
GoTBot started as a useful tool, but grew into an entertaining digital friend. Popular Google searches related to Game of Thrones shaped GoTBot so that he answers the most pressing questions, but he is learning every day through the magic of AI.
