This course includes 4 Core components. All listed items are Microsoft's product and have proper documentation so if you stuck anywhere you can find proper documentation.
- Microsoft Bot Framework enables you to build bots that support different types of interactions with users. Microsoft Bot Framework allows us to create conversational chatbots. Every bot has some common functionalities. Such as each bot require basic I/O, they must have language and dialog skills, and they must connect to users, preferably in any conversation experience and language the user chooses. The Bot Framework is responsible for this.
- LUIS stands for Language Understanding Intelligent Service. LUIS uses machine learning to allow developers to build applications that can receive user input in natural language and extract meaning from it. It allows your application to understand what a person wants in their own words.
- Azure Bot Services provides an integrated environment purpose-built for bot development. You can write a bot, connect, test, deploy, and manage it from your web browser with no separate editor. We can publish it to various channels such as Skype, Cortana, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Slack etc.
- Azure Cognitive Services is a collection of APIs that enables natural and contextual interaction. It has intelligent algorithms to see, hear, speak, understand and interpret user needs through natural methods of communication.
