Hear the discussion from copywriter, voice actor and marketer Rew Shearer as he talks through the why, how, and watch out! of chatbot personality in this short live webinar co-hosted by Chief Conversologist Jam Mayer.


One of the hardest elements of creating a chatbot is personality. Building a chatbot can be easy. But getting the conversation right is hard. Do you even need a personality for your chatbot – and why?

How do you create personality? The importance of emotion and fallibility. What are the basic elements of being human? How do you know which ones to use, and to what level?

What comes after a humanised script? The beginnings of interactive personality elements – how and what’s next?

The potential of truly personalised chatbots. Human well-being in quality of life applications for the future.

The ethics of personality. How far can AI go and when do we pull the plug?
