CEU InnovationsLab Company Talk-A-Bot to Participate in Hungarian Government-Sponsored Pavilion at CeBIT

Toward the goal of becoming a leader in digital technologies in Europe, Hungary is building its largest pavilion ever at the CeBIT conference, which starts in Hannover March 20, and CEU InnovationsLab company Talk-A-Bot will be one of the exhibitors as a successful innovative startup. Talk-A-Bot represented the 18 Hungarian companies participating in CeBIT at a press conference held today by Hungarian government spokesperson Zoltan Kovacs and government project manager Tamas Deutsch.

Talk-A-Bot enables companies to communicate with customers via social media with no human interface needed, answering questions and comments automatically and opening new marketing channels. Akos Deliaga and Gergely Kalydi, both graduates of CEU Business School, founded the company in 2016, and then developed it in and with CEU InnovationsLab.

“Half a million Hungarians have used the applications developed for our clients so far,” Deliaga said at the press conference. “The exhibition gives us a great opportunity to accelerate our international expansion.”

Hungary’s first chatbot agency quickly became one of the first partners of Viber. Today, more than 500,000 users communicate with the chatbots developed for Talk-A-Bot clients. Talk-A-Bot’s goal is to provide full service to its clients in addition to development – in which the bots’ personality, system integration, NLP programming, AI, big data management and marketing activities are also a part.

During CeBIT, Talk-A-Bot’s “Cebiee” chatbot will help 200,000 visitors via Facebook Messenger at one of the world’s largest international digital exhibition. Cebiee will inform visitors about the Hungarian pavilion and provide other information about the expo.
