What the attendees will learn

Join us in an awesome hackathon where you will be creating conversational AI experiences - by combining the power of Big Data and chatbots!

No experience with creating bots? No worries! On the first day you will be introduced to – and trained in - bot concepts such as intents and entities. You will also learn how to integrate your bot with 3rd party APIs and Big Data sources. That introduction, together with provided samples and on-site experts, will give you the tools you need to create amazing bots!

Showtime! At the end of the last day, there will be time to show off your creations (optional, of course) on stage. You can select whether you would like your bot to run on Facebook Messenger or embedded into a website!
