Abstract: Chatbots are computer programs that integrate artificial intelligence and are able to simulate a human conversation at a certain extent. They are becoming popular as are based in natural language and have a conversational user interface which is very common in smartphone instant messaging applications. Chatbots are being explored in education, not to take on the role of teacher, but to assume repetitive and low cognitive level tasks of this role. In education, there are chatbots that can work as virtual assistants to improve productivity or just to answer FAQs. Also, there are chatbots with a clear educational aim that work as tutors during the whole learning process.
