In this joint hands-on IBM-H2O meetup, we will build a chatbot powered by artificial intelligence and IBM Watson services. You will learn about the building blocks needed to understand natural language user input and how to process requests via a Slackbot. We will cover how Watson Assistant and Watson Tone Analyzer services enable this capability, and deploy the chatbot. This is a fun, meetup session you don't want to miss.
