The “Explain This Bob” bot was created in a partnership with a few people. Odisha-based Prabhu P. Biswal said that he wanted to make an explainer bot for coding practice and learning purposes.
On Twitter, social media users tag or reply to the “Explain This Bob” account, and it comes back with accurate answers. Once, Elon Musk also confessed his love to ‘Explain this Bob’.
In an interview with Business Today (BT), Prabhu said, “I’m already working on developing Bob on other platforms like Telegram, Discord, and Reddit, which will increase the backend cost even more.”
The popularity of the AI bot increased when Elon Musk said, “I love Bob.” Various media organizations started publishing news stories about ‘Explain this Bob’.
