Your Mission:

Be a champion for compassion and build a chatbot

  • Play with a chatbot and learn about the three basic components of Watson Conversation: intents, entities, and dialog
  • Build a simple chatbot using Watson Assistant (formerly Conversation)
  • Analyze tone and emotions in text by using Watson Tone Analyzer and brainstorm ways you can use the service to improve your chatbot.


Example Chatbots from your community-driven chatbot development hub
