Bye Bye App - Hello Bot

Why Facebook thinks "bots" are the essential new way for companies to reach their customers. We talk to Dennis Mortensen, whose company is behind the meeting-scheduling bot Amy. And we find out how Californian startup Zipline plans to use autonomous aircraft to deliver medical supplies in Rwanda. Presented by Rory Cellan-Jones, with special guest Blathnaid Healy, UK Editor of Mashable, and Zoe Kleinman from the BBC Online tech desk.
