In this session, we will go through various aspects of Bot development. We will start with an introduction, where I will introduce Bots (sometimes called also virtual assistants or conversational interfaces), I will tell why they are so popular now and outline main benefits. I will explain main concepts behind this technology – dialog management, natural language understanding, intents, entities etc. Then I will show what tools and technologies are there and how a typical bot is built. Finally I will tell about current limitations and challenges to deal with. And I hope there will be time for questions, discussions and exchange of ideas. I believe you will get good insight into bot development and understanding how you could introduce Bots in your projects.
