All the big technology companies are getting into the bot game.

Facebook and Google have recently made announcements related to bots, and now it appears that Microsoft could be developing a bot for its Bing search engine. Last week, the company briefly posted a job opening for a software engineer to work on a bot called Bing Concierge.

The posting, which has since been taken down, said, "In Bing Concierge Bot, we are building a highly intelligent productivity agent that communicates with the user over a conversation platform, such as Skype, Messenger, SMS, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc." It added, "The agent does what a human assistant would do: it runs errands on behalf of the user, by automatically completing tasks for the user."
