About the DataHour:

Chatbots allow you to automate repetitive conversations and can be a huge timesaver both for users and businesses. Modern tooling makes it easier than ever before to get started building flexible, robust chatbots. 

In this DataHour, Rachael will be demonstrating how to build a Chat-bot using Rasa, an Open Source library for building chatbots. She’ll cover the basics of Rasa, including how words are translated into machine learning features and how the next conversation turn is picked. You’ll also get to build the chatbot along with her, so come prepared with the prerequisites.

Prerequisites: Enthusiasm for building a Chat-bot. If you'd like to code-along you should install Rasa Open Source beforehand. Installation guide for: Windows, MacOS and Ubuntu

Who is this DataHour for?

  • Anyone who wants to learn how to build a Chatbot from scratch.
