Use this book as an on-ramp to the development of enterprise-grade chatbots and digital assistants. It is based on real-life experience and explains everything you need to know to start building your own digital assistant (DA) using Oracle technologies. You will become familiar with the concepts involved in DA development from both a user experience and technical point of view. You will learn to create DAs using Oracle technologies, including the Oracle Digital Assistant Cloud.
In the first part of the book, you will learn the basic principles of the digital assistant (AKA Chatbot) technology. You will be guided through the steps involved in designing a DA, including how to make sure that the user receives a satisfying experience when using the assistant. In the second part of the book, you will learn how to implement the digital assistant that was designed in the first part. You will begin with a basic implementation, later enhancing that implementation with agents, multi-language support, and webviews. The final part of the book adds a deep dive into custom component development with an example around sentiment analysis and speech.
