Tech in 2018 is pushing new boundaries, and this is supposedly the year that chatbots rise high and become smarter. Let’s take a look at how that’s going so far.

Chatbots are not immune to criticism, and the backlash and questions are starting. Is the technology nimble and resolute enough to overcome these issues?
