Verizon Lounge @ CenturyLink Field  |  Thursday, November 16th, 2017  |  9AM to 7PM PST


The advancement of artificial intelligence and natural language processing, along with the ubiquity of messaging apps and voice platforms, have fueled the rise of chat bots. Some say that bots are the new apps. Driven by data that is easily indexable and searchable, sports are an obvious use-case for content-driven bot experiences. The purpose of this hackathon is to develop simple, easy-to-use bots for football fans (American football or soccer), leveraging the Microsoft Bot Framework and GameOn Content APIs.
