Hello Bot Devs,
When creating software conversational experiences, one of the most important components of the product involves NLU (natural language understanding). A great NLU component can mark a difference in the overall conversation flow between bots and users.
Designing, implementing and improving the language model is key. Several tools exist out there that can help achieve this but one stands out given the research prowess behind it: the Conversation Service (https://www.ibm.com/watson/developercloud/conversation.html) inside the IBM Watson offering.
We are lucky to have IBM Watson's Conversation Service Product Manager, Mitch Mason, to walk us through the best use cases and tips on implementing language models in Watson, and integrating those with your conversational product.
