Create an application that understands natural-language and responds to customers in human-like conversation – in multiple languages. Seamlessly connect to messaging channels, web environments and social networks to make scaling easy. Easily configure a workspace and develop your application to suit your needs. There's no limit to what you can do.

Contextual Entities

7 minute demo

Create an entity model to detect entities based on context, and return never-before-seen values to your application.   https://console.bluemix.net/docs/services/conversation/entities.html#defining-contextual-entities

Dialog Callout

13 minute demo

Tutorial on how to make a server side call to an external system from a dialog node. https://console.bluemix.net/docs/services/assistant/dialog-actions.html#dialog-actions

Working with Dialog

3 minute demo

The dialog uses the intents and entities that are identified in the user's input, plus context from the application, to interact with the user and ultimately provide a useful response.

Gathering Information with Slots

7 minute demo

Add slots to a dialog node to gather multiple pieces of information from a user within that node. Slots collect information at the user's pace. Details the user provides up-front are saved, and the service asks only for the details they do not.

Defining Intents

3 minute demo

Intents are purposes or goals expressed in a customer's input, such as answering a question or processing a bill payment. By recognizing the intent expressed in a customer's input, the Watson Assistant service can choose the correct dialog flow for responding to it.

Defining Entities

2 minute demo

Entities represent a class of object or a data type that is relevant to a user's purpose. By recognizing the entities that are mentioned in the user's input, the Watson Assistant service can choose the specific actions to take to fulfill an intent.
