Welcome to “Building a Chatbot on Azure”. My name’s Guy Hummel, and I’m a Microsoft certified Azure Solutions Architect and AI Engineer. If you have any questions, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn and send me a message, or send an email to email@example.com.
To get the most from this course, it would be helpful to have some experience using Azure. Ideally, you should also have some experience writing code, although that’s not strictly necessary.
To save you the trouble of typing in the URLs shown in this course, I’ve put them in a file in a GitHub repository. You can find a link to the repository at the bottom of the course overview below this video.
We’ll start with a quick overview of some of Azure’s AI services and what we’re going to build in this course. Then I’ll show you how to create a searchable knowledge base using the question answering service. Next, you’ll see how to create a bot and connect it to the knowledge base. After that, I’ll show you how to create a web chat app and connect it to the bot. Finally, I’ll explain how to enable spoken input and output in the chatbot.
We’d love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you’re finished.
Now, if you’re ready to learn how to build an informational chatbot, then let’s get started.
