Dive into chatbots – an intermediate hands-on workshop (Hacker Dojo)

March 26, 2019  |  Workshop

Chatbots are the new craze, but it takes a good understanding of dialogs and communication to design and implement a usable chatbot. We will learn the underlying principles of a chatbot in this talk and then build one from scratch. In this talk, you will learn the anatomy of a good chatbot and how the various pieces fit together. We will look at – Intents: to convey purpose or goal

  • Entities: make logical decisions based on user input
  • Dialogs: design a conversation
  • Slots: collect important information to fulfill an intent
  • Digressions and Handlers: handle unexpected conversations
  • Analytics: improve chatbot on an ongoing basis using metrics
  • Integrating with other cognitive services via serverless (time permitting)
