Before I start, I would like to give credits to these blogs that helped us in framing our own chat bot.
Most of the technical details of the implementation are already mentioned in these blogs. So, I will just summarize how I made mine.
And this Blog2 helped us in linking SAPUI5 with Recast.ai. We integrated Slack ,SAP JAM with Recast.ai before using SAPUI5 made bot.
Let me tell you the platforms I leveraged for making my little bot
- SAPUI5 made chat bot on SAP Cloud Platform NEO trial account.
- Recast.ai – Now SAP Conversational AI Platform.
- SAP CloudFoundry – trial account to host my Python Flask service.
- SAP HANA – wherein I have two tables from which the data will be fetched and shown in the chat bot. Also, I have XSJS services here that does the information propagation to Python/Recast.ai.
Here is the setup of my mini bot…
And there goes the results.
