As we roll out the Oracle Digital Assitant workshop across Australia and New Zeland over the course of the next few weeks, below are the instructions for the participants interested to try out the platform and build a Digital Assistant.

  • If you have registered for the event, you would get an email to set up the password for your Oracle cloud account on the day of the workshop.
  • Once you set up the password access  Digital Assistant UI to start building your first Digital Assistant.
  • Download the hands-on lab material from here that has detailed instructions on how to design and deploy a Digital Assistant.

Here are some interesting links that can compliment your learning process of the Oracle Digital Assitant or if you would like to re-visit them later.

Autonomous Digital Assistant to Human Agent seamless Handoff

In earlier articles, I discussed Autonomous Digital Assistantprovisioning a Digital Assistant, building skills and making it multi-lingual. In this post, I would like to take the discussion forward to address certain scenarios where there is a need for Human Intervention when the Bot cannot handle the conversation and instead redirect the chat to a human agent.

Building a Multi-Lingual Bot on the Oracle Chatbot Platform

Building a Multi-Lingual Bot on the Oracle Chatbot Platform

First things first, if you are new to building Chatbot using the Oracle Cloud Platform, here are some quick videos to get you started on the platform and its capabilities. There is also an online MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) available on how to build your first BOT using the Oracle Platform and access the Bot through Facebook Channel.
Now that we understand how to build a bot let’s turn the Bot that can recognise the input from the end user conversing in his/her own language and respond accordingly.

The Bot platform allows you to bring your own translation keys (Google / Bing) and the Bot can be configured to detect the language. The bot further converts the user input to English, intent recognition by the NLP engine kicks off, based on the dialogue flow the bot structures the response in English which is again translated back into the language in which the question was asked by the user.

Let’s see that this in action :

Building iOS Mobile App on Oracle Autonomous Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS)

The latest VBCS 2.0 release makes developing Mobile Applications faster using a declarative drag and drop approach while giving the flexibility to the developer to inspect the code and inject any additional code that the tool doesn’t provide out of the box. You can build your app from the browser itself without the need for any code editor.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to build a Mobile app using VBCS.

Teaching How to get Microservices to Consume Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Database (ATP)

A few days ago, we published an article that shows how to provision and connect to Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Database (ATP). Based on this, we got multiple requests to also demonstrate how to extend the connection to the Autonomous DB, not only from SQL Developer, but also from polyglot microservices.

In this blog, we are going to take a step forward and create a simple “Hello World” NodeJS application that exposes some REST APIs that push and pull data using an Oracle Autonomous DB. The idea is to give you all knowledge required, to be start building your own microservices, consuming data from Autonomous DB.
