  • dom-to-image is a library which can turn arbitrary DOM node into a vector (SVG) or raster (PNG or JPEG) image, written in JavaScript.
  • All the top level functions accept DOM node and rendering options, and return promises, which are fulfilled with corresponding data URLs.
  • Get a PNG image base64-encoded data URL and display right away: – – Get a PNG image blob and download it (using FileSaver, for example): – – Get an SVG data URL, but filter out all the elements: – – Get the raw pixel data as a Uint8Array with every…
  • Defaults to false – – A data URL for a placeholder image that will be used when fetching an image fails.

  • As artificial intelligence moves out of its winter we are encountering confusion over what to call the intelligent computer programs that communicate with us chatbot or virtual assistant.
  • Virtual assistants even now still struggle to remember key information during conversations but chatbots are already proving they can store what you tell them.
  • For example, Inbentas chatbot Veronica is able to remember your email address if you provide it to her.
  • Rather than debate what we should name them, it is important to recognize how the chatbot (or virtual assistant) will provide the most human-like experience possible by understanding our natural language to the best capabilities.
  • Inbenta is a leader in natural language processing and artificial intelligence for customer support, e-commerce and conversational chatbots, providing an easy-to-deploy solution that improves customer satisfaction, reduces support costs, and increases revenue.
