Wondering About Weed? ABBI The Medical Cannabis Chatbot Has Answers

By Nand Kishor |Email | Apr 25, 2017 | 5913 Views

AI is all the rage on social platforms these days, from POTUS-based Twitterbots to digital dirty-talkers. On Facebook Messenger, a fresh bundle of algorithms is even offering to give new and experienced cannabis users the medicine-led answers they need fast (if still a bit on the green side, conversationally).

ABBI is a new edutainment bot designed to handle all your legal cannabis-related queries, and which is now available for free chatsultations via Messenger. Compliments of the expertly named course hosting and soon-to-be news site WeedHorn, the chatbot is built on OctaneAI's Convos editor, which founder Rick Bakas said he chose to allow the most flexibility.

In a phone interview, Bakas explained that Convos' programming features allowed him to give a touch of attitude to ABBI, who name was selected "to be human, but not stuffy" (and is loosely linked to the phrase 'Abbi Cannabi'). GIFs and other notes of flavor help web users to engage more, Bakas said, in an ag when they tend to get bored. "GIFs and emojis are part of how people choose to communicate with one another, which is why Buzzfeed became popular in the first place, and ABBI talks in the same way," he said.

As the new chatbot logs more conversational hours, it will also become more accurate and able to respond to specific requests, such as finding best-fit cannabis strains or delivering photos of weed. "ABBI's responses will get more granular over time," he explained. "Users will be able to quickly get information on what strains may be helpful for their symptoms, what dose they should use, how often, and so on. Right now, you get more of an overview." Read More
