When the need to find something arises, the usual course of action is to search. This is often done on the internet, a vast repository of nearly everything. The process is akin to searching for an object in a house. If one were to misplace a sock, for example, the entire house could be searched. However, this might take time. Similarly, if one were to search for a specific kind of sock on the internet, numerous styles, sizes, and types may be encountered before finding the exact kind needed. This can be equated to looking for golf socks in a mall—going from store to store until the right pair is found. The process is similar to searching the internet; it might take a while due to the vast amount of information available, but eventually, the search will yield results.
Chatbots have become a modern tool for searching for information, providing a more direct route to answers. Instead of manually sorting through search results, one can simply ask a question to the chatbot. The same principle is applied when searching for information within a book. If the right book is chosen, it can give much better information than a general internet search, and often faster due to less unrelated information to sift through.
When it comes to accessing books, especially digital copies, the process isn't as straightforward. Copyright laws often prevent books from being freely available on the internet. Therefore, to access a book's content, one usually has to purchase a license, such as reading it on a Kindle device. The evolution of information retrieval has moved from traditional book reading to digital reading where keywords can be used to search for specific information within a book. This has further evolved to the point where a question can be asked and an accurate answer can be obtained from the book.
The process of writing a book is a monumental task. Once a book is written and published, it is usually there to stay, often for many decades or longer. Books are a treasure trove of knowledge, covering a wide range of topics in great depth. However, not everyone has the time to read books. Many people believe that reading books is time-consuming and that summaries of books are a more efficient way of obtaining information. However, summaries do not offer the opportunity to explore specific areas of interest within a book.
This is where iChatbook comes in. iChatbook allows users to access summaries and delve into specific parts of the book as desired. However, it is crucial to ensure that the book is used as the primary source of information. Chatbots can provide general information, but detailed content from a book can only be accessed through a service that uses the book as its source. iChatbook is a tool that makes this possible, transforming the way information is retrieved and making the process more fun, interesting, and engaging.
