Chatbots have become a familiar feature in all our lives, and they’re now a very effective first line of communication for businesses. Individuals with the right skills are in demand as organizations battle to save time and money. As customer interaction with chatbots increases exponentially, the number of vacancies requiring experience of creating chatbots is growing significantly.

In this course, you will learn how to develop engaging chatbots without the need to write code. Through IBM Watson's natural language processing capabilities, you will explore how to plan, implement, test, and deploy engaging chatbots. You will discover how to create chatbots using Watson Assistant, and you will then deploy them on your own website through a WordPress plugin.

For learners building their knowledge in AI, this course teaches a critical skill that will help you progress in this exciting field.

This course comprises eight purposely designed modules that take you on a carefully defined learning journey. If you are thinking about taking the course separately, it is worth noting that it is part of the IBM Applied AI Professional Certificate Program and you may want to consider enrolling for the whole program rather than just enrolling for one course at a time.

It is a self-paced course, which means it is not run to a fixed schedule with regard to completing modules or submitting assignments. To give you an idea of how long the course takes to complete, it is anticipated that if you work 2-4 hours per week, you will complete the program in 2 weeks. However, as long as the course is completed by the end of your enrollment, you can work at your own pace. And you will be encouraged to stay connected with your learning community and mentors through the course discussion space.

The materials for each module are accessible from the start of the course and will remain available for the duration of your enrollment. Methods of learning and assessment will include videos, reading material, and online exams questions.

As part of our mentoring service you will have access to valuable guidance and support throughout the course. We provide a dedicated discussion space where you can ask questions, chat with your peers, and resolve issues. Depending on the payment plan you have chosen, you may also have access to live classes and webinars, which are an excellent opportunity to discuss problems with your mentor and ask questions. Mentoring services will vary across packages.

Once you have successfully completed the course, you will earn your IBM Certificate.

Watson Assistant is effectively a virtual agent that is powered by AI. It can provide answers to customer questions across multiple messaging platforms. It works by drawing on existing data and learning from new customer conversations to resolve customer queries without the need for human intervention. Answers to questions are remarkably accurate and consistent, and the response is very fast.

As IBM advises, Watson Assistant can provide these answers across any application, device or channel. And the great thing is that it learns, thus preventing unhelpful loops in customer conversations. You can read more about it here: https://www.ibm.com/uk-en/cloud/watson-assistant.
