This Facebook bot will pick your next movie for you

This is mainly due to shortfalls in natural language processing and the trial-and-error process of developers actually figuring out how users are going to use bots.

After the superfluous pleasantries standard with all bots these days, And Chill asks you to tell it a movie you liked and why.

While I was at first skeptical of the startup s lack of transparency around the recommendation process mainly just because I like knowing how things work most of that disappeared once I actually received some valuable suggestions.

All three decently complicated questions I posed were answered with movies that I either had already seen and loved, or more frequently hadn t heard of but looked great.

Currently, requests take a few minutes to process so don t give up if you haven t heard back yet , which may be because the startup noted that that some requests involve human input to confirm what their data crunching gives them .

You can try And Chill by messaging them on Facebook here, or texting them at this number: 213-297-3673
