easyBot – Easy to Use – Step by Step
1. Design Your easyBot
On the easyBot building page
, you can design new conversations with an AI (such as chatbots, voice control systems, AI bots etc.). Just type the sentences that a human user and the AI say, into the respective input fields. The lines with input fields are numbered as these numbers represent the order in which utterances of the human user and the AI occur in their conversation.
At any time, build and immediately talk to your easyBot: Just press the ‘build easyBot’ button to see the processing circle turn for a few seconds while your easyBot is being built and deployed. When build is done, you will see a message, and a passcode (‘Bot Key’) is displayed in the upper right corner. You can now talk to your bot (see list of available channels
below), or you can continue designing it.
How to Make the AI Understand What You Say
Often, the AI should have individual responses depending on what the users say. easyBot lets you design these individual “conversation flows” by providing multiple input fields for a conversation step. Each input field can contain a different utterance said by the human user, and for each human utterance you can design a separate response by the AI, followed by human utterances specific to this response and so on.
For example, if you let the AI say ‘how are you’, the human user might respond ‘good’ or ‘bad’ depending on the mood. For this, provide two parallel input fields in the “Human Says” column, by filling the existing field with ‘good’, and then pressing ‘Add New’ to get a second input field to input ‘bad’. Now, by clicking on ‘good’ or ‘bad’, you are activating the conversation that should follow. First click on ‘good’, then input ‘great to hear’ into the “AI Says” field. If you then click on ‘bad’, you will notice that the “AI Says” field is empty – because you still need to provide an AI response for the ‘bad’ mood. Type ‘sorry to hear’ in the “AI Says”. After building, the bot respond differently depending on what the user said. If they said they feel ‘good’, the AI will respond ‘good to hear’, if they feel terrible, the AI will respond ‘sorry to hear’.
By the way, you do not need to list up all possible wordings or similar expressions to what the user can say. These variations are added automatically using state-of-the art Natural Language Understanding (NLU) tools and tricks.
easyBot builds conversations in most languages with smart support for English, Japanese, Chinese, German and French (more languages following soon).
Update and Deletes
You can change your bot as you like: Edit the text of utterances, add conversation steps, add alternative user utterances, etc. You can delete utterances by clicking on the ‘x’; please note that deleting an utterance also deletes all conversation steps following this utterance. After updating your bot, just rebuild it by clicking ‘Build easyBot’ – the updated bot is immediately ready to chat to on all channels.
