Chatbots have come a long way since AOL Instant Messenger, and they’re here to help! In this workshop, Nick will cover the basics of chatbot architecture.

Using Node.js and the Watson Conversation service, Nick will discuss dialog tree design, cognitive training models available for smarter UX, and logging API interactions for future analysis.
The goal is to show attendees how you can build a cognitive chatbot, along with a plan for monitoring and analyzing application usage--all using cloud-based persistence and analytics services.
