Microsoft’s Working on a New Bot Framework

It looks like Microsoft is working on a new bot framework, and the company might be gearing up to make a public announcement in the near future. It’s not clear if Microsoft will talk about this service at Build next week, but thanks to a few leaked assets, we have a basic understanding of the service.

WalkingCat uncovered a developer code of conduct for the new bot framework that urges transparency in its use, such as not using the framework to scrape sensitive data without consent. The bot framework is described as “a set of web-services that enable intelligent services and connections using conversation channels.”

Azure Bot Framework

When the service does go live, it appears that it will reside at botframework.com, which currently points to a 404 page that’s hosted on Azure. Once the site is live, based on the image above, the page will make it easy to manage, find and register your bot once it has been created.

Once details started to show up about this service, Microsoft quickly pulled any remaining assets associated with the bot framework, which means we are left with more questions than answers. Seeing as the company is actively building out the website for it, hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer to learn more.
