New experimental service for building virtual agents and chat bots

Share this post:

Looking for a new way to engage users with your apps? Try IBM Watson Conversation, a new experimental service now available in Bluemix. With this service, you will be able to create chat bots and virtual agents that use natural language understanding and dialog to automate interactions with your customers.

This early experimental version introduces a new user interface and the ability to manage intents. This is a fast evolving service, and we will be adding powerful entity extraction and rich dialog scripting in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back soon for updates.

With the current build of Watson Conversation, you can:

  • Build Twitter, Slack, and other messaging and social network platform bots that interact instantly with your followers.
  • Incorporate state-of-the-art language and intent understanding to your apps.
  • Add a chat bot to your website that automatically responds to your customers’ most frequently asked questions.

Learn more. As you experiment with Watson Conversation, we look forward to your suggestions to help us continue to build out the service. Engage with other developers and ask your questions on our devWorks forum.
