Chatbots Magazine published an article from Botanic Technologies' founder and CEO, Mark Stephen Meadows, on the science behind building trust through artificial intelligence. To trust or not to trust is a core function of our neolithic brain -- and our survival as human beings. 

Microsoft's Cognitive Services team understands this well. At their May 2017 Build conference, they demonstrated an Interview Coach bot named Andi (as seen below in this VentureBeat article).
