The Louvre Chatbot Guide - a new way to engage with artworks
In the form of a chatbot, the cutest owl you've ever seen tells you stories about the various pieces of art in The Louvre: from the Mona Lisa to the Venus de Milo. This contrasts with traditional museum content, which tends to be more fact based. The new chatbot medium blends conversation with images and gifs to make the content more exciting.
Finally, it makes it possible for deaf or hard-of-hearing people to have an entertaining alternative to audio-guides.
The app is available for free on iOS and Android platforms, in four languages (English, French, Simplified Chinese, Spanish). Additionally, the company will be releasing a lightweight version of the app for Facebook Messenger, Skype, Slack and the web.
