Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:
- Integrate external sources of truth with Dialogflow
- Leverage Google Cloud Functions to call external APIs
- Expand Dialogflow to serve real-world data
This lab is intended for:
- Machine learning engineers
- Anyone interested in bots
You should possess:
- A basic understanding of Dialogflow Intents, Entities, and Responses is required
- A basic understanding of NodeJS is recommended
- A basic understanding of Google Cloud is helpful but not required
