***Topic*** Building Conversational AI using Azure Bot Service and Cognitive Service This talk will focus on building conversational AI agents using Azure Bot Service, Microsoft Bot Framework and Cognitive Services. We will look at building, connecting, testing, and deploying intelligent bots to engage and serve your customers across multiple channels like web chat, Facebook, Skype, Slack, SMS, WeChat and more.

What we're about

Public Group

What is ALT.NET?

1. You’re the type of developer who uses what works while keeping an eye out for a better way.

2. You reach outside the mainstream to adopt the best of any community: Open Source, Agile, Java, Ruby, etc.

3. You’re not content with the status quo. Things can always be better expressed, more elegant and simple, more mutable, higher quality, etc.

4. You know tools are great, but they only take you so far. It’s the principles and knowledge that really matter. The best tools are those that embed the knowledge and encourage the principles

...then you're in the right place! We will be meeting monthly to discuss issues that interest us in a loose, informal discussion-style environment. All software developers of every stripe are hereby extended an invitation to participate in the discussion or just come and see what all this ALT.NET stuff is about.
