Mr. Turing is a bot that takes English lessons to Facebook Messenger for free. Only with a social network account, it is possible to start a conversation with the virtual robot to exercise translations and learn more language vocabulary.
Chatbots like this simulate human speech to allow chat between machine and user. On platforms like Facebook, robots are generally offered by companies for customer service, for selling products or, as in the case of Mr. Turing, assisting in language learning.
