The Conversational AI & Chatbot program is divided into sections, modularized and arranged in a sequential manner to allow for easy assimilation.



Beginners Guide

The term “Conversational artificial intelligence (AI)” has been traced back to the 1950s, when Alan Turing hypothesized that a computer program could interact with humans. Fast forward to 1966, the first chatbot software ever developed Eliza, was created at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory by Joseph Weizenbaum.

Eliza, is a computer program that uses natural language processing (NLP) to imitate a psychotherapist’s language. This is the first time a human-like conversation with a chatbot was made possible.

In this section of the program, you will learn the nitty-gritty of Chatbot development, from the introduction of natural language processing (NLP) to understanding it’s implementation to generate an interactive product.
