In this MeetUp, ThoughtWorker Christoph Windheuser will give an introduction to chatbots. He will explain the main components and the architecture of a chatbot. He also will give an overview of different frameworks available to build chatbots. Then he will talk about how ThoughtWorks has built the chatbot “BALU” to manage vacation requests with the RASA.AI framework. Christoph will give some insights on why RASA was chosen, the importance of user design for bot development, how to test a bot, lessons learned during the project and the limits of the technology today. All will be illustrated with live examples of BALU.
