Artificial Intelligence Bot/Office Morale Booster

Piper is FootSteps Marketing's artificial intelligence bot written to help us deploy our development environments. Integrated with our internal messaging system, any time we need to roll out a new version of our content management system, we tell Piper to do it and she does.

Named after Tyler Wheaton’s beloved dog, Piper can do more than just deploy our content management environments. She also takes lunch orders, will post images of cute pug dogs, will remind us to do tasks, helps us make decisions between two options, and more. Eventually, we’d like to teach her how to make and bring us coffee, tea, and actually run out and delver the lunch orders, but for now we’ll settle for her responding with “PONG” to commands of ping and coming up with cute names for us, like SuperSparrow.

In real life, Piper is actually a dog who likes to run, chase squirrels, hang out with her people, and is afraid of cows. She’s probably one of the sweetest dogs the FootSteps team has ever had the pleasure of working with.
