Module 5: Creating Language Understanding Solutions
To build an application that can intelligently understand and respond to natural language input, you must define and train a model for language understanding. In this module, you'll learn how to use the Language Understanding service to create an app that can identify user intent from natural language input.
Lessons
  • Creating a Language Understanding App
  • Publishing and Using a Language Understanding App

  • Create a client application for Language Understanding
  • Integrate Language Understanding and Speech
Module 6: Building a QnA Solution
One of the most common kinds of interaction between users and AI software agents is for users to submit questions in natural language, and for the AI agent to respond intelligently with an appropriate answer. In this module, you'll explore how the QnA Maker service enables the development of this kind of solution.
Lessons
  • Creating a QnA Knowledge Base
  • Publishing and Using a QnA Knowledge Base
  • Lab : Create a QnA Solution
