Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Informatik – Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg, Ravensburg, früher: Berufsakademie Ravensburg (Mobile Informatik), Veranstaltung: Verteilte Systeme, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Arbeit soll zunächst ein Grundverständnis und die Funktionsweise von Chatbots dargelegt werden. Dabei soll die Technologie der Chatbots anhand von A.I.M.L. näher beschrieben werden. Weiter sollen in dieser Arbeit Anwendungsfälle beschrieben werden, bei denen Bots die Nutzung des Internet im Vergleich zu Webseiten vereinfachen können. So werden die Messenger-Plattformen jeden Monat mächtiger, wehalb die Nutzung von Chatbots immer interessanter wird. Daher bieten Chatbots großes Potential was die Vereinfachung des Internets angeht. Im Anschluss an die Anwendungsfälle soll dem Lesen ein Praxisbeispiel gegeben werden, inwiefern ein Raspberry Pi mittels WhatsApp gesteuert werden kann. Darauffolgend werden aufkommende Schwachstellen im Rahmen von Chatbots erläutert. So spielen hier Themen wie Datensicherheit, Persönlichkeitsrechte, und Cyber-Kriminalität eine wesentliche Rolle. Letztendlich erfolgt eine kritische Würdigung in welcher der Einsatz von Chatbots bewertet wird.

In the course of their 20+-year engineering careers, authors Brian Fitzpatrick and Ben Collins-Sussman have picked up a treasure trove of wisdom and anecdotes about how successful teams work together. Their conclusion? Even among people who have spent decades learning the technical side of their jobs, most haven’t really focused on the human component. Learning to collaborate is just as important to success. If you invest in the "soft skills" of your job, you can have a much greater impact for the same amount of effort.

The authors share their insights on how to lead a team effectively, navigate an organization, and build a healthy relationship with the users of your software. This is valuable information from two respected software engineers whose popular series of talks—including "Working with Poisonous People"—has attracted hundreds of thousands of followers.
