From Zero to Chatbot to Digital Assistant in Under Two Hours

February 11th @ 15:15-17:15, Arena 9 (Level 1), Dubai World Trade Centre

Chatbots are one of the first widespread uses of artificial intelligence and natural language processing. As chatbots have evolved in enterprise use, so has the emergence of Digital Assistants. In this hands-on-lab (*your own laptop is required*,) you will get your hands dirty with this new technology. You will first “educate” your Digital Assistant with a rich set of available application skills from Oracle, without writing any code. You will then develop and train a new skill defining intents, utterances, and entities. You will then design the conversation flow, connect the skill to a back-end API, and enhance it with QnA functionality. Finally, you will add the new skill to your Digital Assistant and publish it to a chat client.
