When applied to game systems in the future players will find it harder to distinguish between bot and human players. We will appreciate having AI support in games to help us learn or improve, without ruining the game or requiring deep dives into manuals or tutorial YouTube videos.
It seems that we are witnessing the advent of the age of bots, whether they are conversational, the "chatbots", or whether they are just publishing predetermined messages, as the "Twitter bots" do. Their multiplication is accompanied by a certain refinement in their method of diffusion as well as in the quality of their message, their "script". But this is not only due to new technological possibilities, it is above all the human brain that is behind this improvement.
It is only natural that businesses look within their own territory or market to learn about new technology. But chatbots are a global phenomenon, adopted far faster outside the west that most others, so taking a look at their growth, use and adoption globally provides some valuable insights.
