Building A Simple Chatbot With Dialogflow

Motivation:

Chatbots and Dialog Systems are a hot topic at the moment. We want to give an overview of the current state of the tooling for these applications.

 

Goals:

By the end of the workshop the participants should know the basic concepts of Dialogflow. Furthermore the participants will be able to build a conversational interface for Swiss public transport data (https://transport.opendata.ch/).

 

Outline:

– Welcome / Introduction
– Introduction to Dialog Systems
– Introduction to Dialogflow
– Walkthrough of the TransportBot Demo application
– Hands-on Session

 

Target Audience:

We target a broad audience interested the in real-world implementation of chatbots.
For the hands-on part, it would be good to have some people in the audience with basic python skills. We will provide sample code in Python and split the audience into groups.
