I’ve been interested in learning languages for most of my life. One thing I struggle with is making the jump from class, book, or app to conversation.
Today I had a thought – what if we used chatbots as a stepping stone between the book/app knowledge and real-world conversations?
I work for Google, so my first thought was to see if Google has a Chatbot API. Turns out, there’s a
Hangouts Chatbot API that can be used for free. Score!
But it’s not the only free chatbot API out there – here’s a list of
10 chatbot APIs (including Google’s)
Now the question is – which ones make it easy (or even possible) to build chatbots in another language?
Well, they were still a thing as of 2013, apparently. There were even jQuery Responsive Web Design or WordPress
plugins to resize the image map coordinates for different image sizes.
Raphael library is an alternative and is still available on Github as of June 12, 2021.
I was browsing the document for Google’s Cloud Vision API, and I noticed that the “
Detect text in files (PDF/TIFF)” (OCR) sample can be used with or curl PowerShell !!!
I’m thinking about changing careers to Instructional Design / Development. As part of my thought process, I wondered what the currently preferred software package is, so I asked a
question in the Instructional Design group on Facebook.
One response included a set of skills that corporate IDs should know – I wanted to save that set here:
consulting storyboarding adult learning theory analysis methods engagement evaluation methods graphic design LMS knowledge
I’m sure I’ll find more in the future.
