BOTs are as vital a way for users to interact with a service or application as is a web site or a mobile experience. The BOT Framework is a platform for building, connecting, testing, and deploying powerful and intelligent BOTs.
BOT Framework architecture has been used to implement this Chatbot. LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligent Service) is used for extracting intent and entities from user input. Azure search is used for fetching information about the various choices of food available for ordering. Users can also search with photos. Image recognition is done using Bing Images Search APIs and Custom Vision API. Continuous improvements are very important in developing bots. Bot versions are managed using Azure’s API Management. User’s input log is stored using Azure Functions and in Azure’s COSMOS DB.
Chatbots in general provide better interaction with users. Chatbots solve the asymmetry of information flow. A traditional user interface provides more information than it gets from the users. With Chatbots, the intelligence flows from the user to the Chatbot making it more intelligent over every interaction. Chatbots are so far the best tool for keeping users on a certain platform longer and keeping the content flowing by starting and maintaining the conversation.
