Conversational AI has seen a dramatic shift in how we can engage with our customers and colleagues and meet them on the platforms they are using, anytime. Understanding these capabilities and how to implement intelligent agent solutions is rapidly becoming essential.

This hands-on workshop gives you the core skills you need to build engaging conversational applications, across a range of platforms including web chat, messaging apps, telephony and even smart home platforms – all powered by the Microsoft Conversational AI platform.

The workshop is very hands-on and at the end you will have developed an intelligent assistant that understand natural language, understand speech, speak with a realistic voice and respond to questions, finding answers from your knowledgebase.

After the workshop, you will know what the Microsoft Bot Framework is, how Cognitive Services add intelligence to your bot, and have hands-on experience implementing them all in and functioning virtual agent!

The Conversational AI revolution is here, and you can be part of it!

You will learn:

  • The Microsoft Conversational AI platform and how to use it to build an intelligent bot!
  • How to surface your bot on multiple platforms
  • How to handle more complex conversation, including context switching and interruption handling
  • How to integrate your bot with your data and 3rd party systems
