How to make a multi-lingual chatbot and use it in your Xamarin Forms application

Submitted by Håkan Silfvernagel

Talk Abstract:

Chatbots are commonly used in a wide range of user scenarios such as ordering pizzas, product suggestions, schedule meetings or customer support. But how can we as Microsoft developers make our own chatbot?

In this session I will demonstrate how you can make a chatbot by using the Microsoft Bot Framework together with LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligent Services). The chatbot will be multi-lingual meaning it will adapt in real-time according to the user’s language (i.e. switching from English->Spanish->Norwegian).

Finally we will integrate our chatbot in Xamarin Forms application and demonstrate how we can use this in a mobile scenario.
