Intents, Entities, and Dialogs3:30 with Ben Jakuben
We are now going to zero in on the important things you need to know to build a chatbot using the Conversation Service: Intents, Entities, and Dialogs. Let's take a look at what they are and how they fit together.
- Watson Developer Cloud on GitHub
- Watson Starter Kits - These contain starter app code for common use cases.
- Intent: An intent represents the purpose of a user's input. You define an intent for each type of user request you want your application to support.
- Entity: An entity represents a term or object that is relevant to your intents and that provides a specific context for an intent. You list the possible values for each entity and synonyms that users might enter.
- Dialog: A dialog is a branching conversation flow that defines responses to the defined intents and entities. You use the dialog builder in the tool to create conversations with users to provide responses.
