IBaaS, Intelligent Bots as a Service
Program: 2017 HAZITEK
Annuities: 2017 to 2019
Consortium: Xupera, Arteman, Batura Mobile, Goiena, Mondragón Educación Internacional, ISEA.
The IBaaS (Intelligent Bots as a Service) project arises aware of the enormous potential of the market, the advantages and opportunities that this type of solutions bring to organizations and citizens, and above all, aware of the opportunities that exist to overcome many of the current limitations of technology, configuring an innovative value proposition that responds to the real needs of organizations.
The members of the IBaaS project consortium are fully aware of the enormous economic and technological resources that companies such as Microsoft, Facebook, Telegram, Google, Yahoo and Oracle have. It is not our intention, therefore, to try to compete directly with them, or to be the architects in the necessary standardization of the solutions that reach the market. The current strategies of all these companies are horizontal (the same solutions for all companies and all sectors). Also are eminently endogamous, trying to make their solution the one used, with its tools, its platform and its system of communication, trying to attract the maximum developers, so that they develop chatbot solutions based on their technology.
There are therefore enormous advantages of exploiting the “market niche” left by these large companies, with a solution closer to the reality of our organizations, which is:
- Independent of the communication platform.
- Fully functional for the Spanish and Basque languages.
- That facilitates its use and integration.
- Even that provides certain technological innovations that overcome the limitations of the chatbot systems existing today.
This is the framework of the IBaaS project, an eminently innovative project that seeks through the development and integration of the latest technologies in Artificial Intelligence (semantic algorithms, natural language processing, machine learning, Bayesian networks, graph theory, etc.) and Distributed Computing, to develop a Cloud Platform for the provision of Smart Bots integration services in companies and public Administration entities, under a pay-per-use model.
