A hybrid approach to integrating Watson Assistant into an existing site

Hybrid search is a new way to use IBM Watson Assistant without some of the limitations of a traditional chatbot. This approach lets you have best of both worlds: a robust search engine, which is coupled with AI technology that is capable of evolving as Watson receives additional training over time.


Build a chatbot in the IBM Cloud

If you’re looking to get started with chatbots, Watson services in
IBM Cloud make it easy. In this tutorial, you’ll learn both basic and advanced
techniques for building chatbots that respond intelligently to your users.


Build an enhanced IT help desk chatbot on IBM i with Watson Conversation

Chatbots are conversational robots that simulate conversation, and can interact with users in natural language. By harnessing both the power of the IBM Cloud Watson services and the power and openness of IBM i, you can open up your chatbot to countless creative applications (such as a virtual agent) that can understand and automatically solve password-related issues. This article guides you to implement a prototype of such a chatbot running on IBM i that links the IBM Watson Conversation service and IBM i to Slack, which is the messaging team collaboration tool.


Watson Conversation (Czech) – Common Names Inflection

When using common names as entities in Watson conversation, the inflection works only sometimes (fuzzy matching on) – I’d say for a part of first names; different forms of second names must be entered as synonyms, even very common ones. Is there any chance to improve the feature in the future? Any ideas how to cope with it if the chatbot should return e.g. emails or other contacts to a (potentially big) group of people?

How do I pass data from a Watson Conversation chatbot to a webpage?

How do I pass context variables from the IBM Watson Conversation to a function on a different webpage?

So I want to use a Watson Conversation chatbot to gather profile information, Age, Gender, Name etc, then at the end of the conversation, I want to display all that information to the user on a different webpage.

I’m using WordPress and the Watson Conversation wordpress plugin, so far the only experience I have with Watson Conversation is from this tutorial – https://cognitiveclass.ai/courses/how-to-build-a-chatbot/

Basically, How do I get the data out of the chatbot and into a javascript or php function?

Can this be done and could I be pointed in the right direction?


Send emails to watson chat chat users

I developed a chatbot on Watson Conversation that is about to enter the test phase. However, at a certain point in the dialogue the user should be asked to enter their contact, telephone and e-mail information so that we can contact them to resolve further problems. How can I forward an email containing this data so I can relate it to the customer? I do not find this similar in my research. Appreciate


Adjust context before analyzing nodes in watson

Im building a chatbot with watson and want to be able to adjust the context according to the input(if there is context) and then analyze the nodes to see which one is correct. I have a lot of nodes that have context as conditionality.

The context here is a chatbot for a jobs website. There are 4 different jobs, and once they ask a question(for example wages) about a specific job(say carpenter) the context is that job. So when they ask another question(hours for example) but dont specifiy which job, the answer will be the amount of hours corresponding with the job carpenter. This is all working.

But now comes the hard part. I want at every given moment to be able to switch context. For example when they ask hours&carpenter, it sets the context to carpenter. But if they then ask hours&plumber(with context carpenter), it goes to plumber and sets plumber as the new context.

The problem i have is that i have a lot of conditionalities stating if $carpenter && @ wages go to carpenter and wages. So the context is an integral part of the decision tree. If they ask @plumber && @wages with context of carpenter it activates the conditionality of $carpenter && @wages.

I am looking for a way to the analyze the input, then change the context accordingly and only then check the nodes for the right conditionality. My fix at the moment is to write out every possibility. With 2 jobs that is fine, with 3 jobs is less fine and with 4 jobs its a pain.

srry this post is a mess but i dont know how to explain it better.
