"Questions are asked and answered every day. Question answering (QA) technology aims to deliver the same facility online. It goes further than the more familiar search based on keywords (as in Google, Yahoo, and other search engines), in attempting to recognize what a question expresses and to respond with an actual answer. This simplifies things for users in two ways. First, questions do not often translate into a simple list of keywords. ...Second, QA takes responsibility for providing answers, rather than a searchable list of links to potentially relevant documents (web pages), highlighted by snippets of text that show how the query matched the documents."

IBM Watson Assistant (WA), at its core has a basic intent and entity structure. Intents are as minimalist as can be. During the intent creation process, there are two features which aid in the defining of intents. Bot of these features translate into better defined intents, and translates nicely into the JSON export file. Hence the leverage these functions lend to the intent creation process is not lost.
Ahead of the U.S. presidential election on November 3, IBM today announced it's working with states to put information into the hands of potential voters. Using the AI and natural language processing capabilities of Watson Assistant, IBM says it's helping field voter queries online and via phone by advising people on polling place locations, voting hours, procedures for requesting mail-in ballots, and deadlines. Research from the Pew Center indicates that nearly half of all U.S. voters expect to have difficulties casting a ballot due to the coronavirus pandemic. In a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll, 41% of those surveyed said they believed the U.S. is not very prepared or not at all prepared to keep November's election safe and secure. IBM's election-focused Watson Assistant offering taps Watson Discovery to surface information about voting logistics from federal, state, and county websites; local news reports; and government documents.
Whether it's simply interacting with Siri or OKGoogle on our phones, or talking to Alexa on our countertops, we have come to rely on the convenience of being able to casually check the weather before heading out for the day. We can see another example of a question answering system in the form of chatbots, which have become ubiquitous for digitally transformed businesses as a way to streamline and improve customer service operations with more natural language interactions (though the jury is still out on whether these chatbots facilitate or frustrate the user experience). A third example that is becoming increasingly popular can be seen in augmented analytics tools that are enabling non-technical workers to become "information workers" thanks to the ease of access to data insights through plain natural language queries, rather than highly specialized database languages. These types of capabilities are predicted to increase dramatically in the next three to five years as natural language capabilities march towards maturity.

There is no famous person or single individual in history who has achieved his or her goals in life without working hard and sweating on them. Whether working more than anyone, studying more than anyone, or even suffering more than everyone else, you need to understand the importance of working towards your ultimate goal, without that, there is no way to have goals in life that are achievable really. To start the hard work, you can set your schedule, write down the tasks and functions of the day and find the right people and resources to help you. Who this course is for: Technology professionals Technology courses instructor since 2019 and database specialist.
Most often the first step in creating a chatbot is listing the different intents. Intents are really the different intentions a user might want to exercise in using your chatbot. From this example Customer Care Sample Skill, the different intents are clearly care related to each other. The first intent addressed, usually is the greeting, then the goodbye, followed by small talk. The key is to segment the intents accurately, and not have conflicts.
Staying healthy and fit is a critical habit to build (especially in the midst of a global pandemic). Unfortunately, without the amenities of our everyday fitness routines-- lavish community gyms, expert personal trainers, even that one buddy who spends way too much time working out-- staying in shape can be a struggle for many. But what if you could have 24/7 access to expert-level, on-demand personal training advice, as quickly and easily as sending a text message? Thanks to increasingly sophisticated conversational AI technologies, it's now possible to build your very own virtual workout advisor in just minutes (even if you have no clue how to code). In this tutorial, we're going to walk through the process of creating an AI personal trainer using IBM's Watson Assistant.
A complete guide to optimizing your site for voice search. Includes lots of actionable tips and real life examples. Contrary to popular belief, voice search isn’t just for mobile devices. More people are talking to their desktop computers and smart speakers. SEOs will need to adapt. Voice search isn’t “the next
The question answering system is commonly used in the field of natural language processing. It is used to answer questions in the form of natural language and has a wide range of applications. Typical applications include intelligent voice interaction, online customer service, knowledge acquisition, personalized emotional chatting, and more. Most question answering systems can be classified as generative and retrieval question answering systems, single-round question answering and multi-round question answering systems, open question answering systems, and specific question-answering systems. This article mainly deals with a QA system designed for a specific field, which is usually called an intelligent customer service robot.
AI and a Cognitive computing system would approach a data-intensive task differently. Cognitive computing assists humans to take a smarter decision. On the other hand AI is based on the idea that machines can make a better decision on the human's behalf. The Applications for Watson's underlying cognitive computing technology are almost endless. Hence we have deployed the IBM Watson into services as it responds immediately, stays open up to 24/7, keeps conventional, and reduces cost.
The growth of knowledge and research around language models has been amazing in the past few years. For BERT especially, we have seen some incredible uses for this massive pre-trained language model on tasks like text classification, prediction, and question answering. I've recently written about how some have researched some of the limitations of BERT when performing certain language tasks. Further, I did some testing on my own with creating a question-answering system to get a feel for how it could be used. It has been great to see and try in practice some of the many capabilities of language models.
