Crisis communication starter kit: Build your COVID-19 chatbot

In times of crisis, chatbots can help people quickly find answers they need to critical questions. In the case of a pandemic like COVID-19, people might be trying to find basic information about testing, symptoms, community response, and other resources.

In this session, see how to create a crisis communication chatbot using IBM Watson Assistant, a tool that enables you to build conversational interfaces into any application, device, or channel. We’ll walk you through the steps you need to get your chatbot up and running and ready to integrate with a variety of APIs and data sources. Follow along with the tutorial.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Provision an instance of Watson Assistant
  • Add a dialog skill to your Watson Assistant instance

You’ll also be ready for the next session where you’ll integrate data sources via a Watson Assistant webhook.
