During this workshop, you’ll guide participants through building an Action for Google Assistant! This action will retrieve Tweets from Twitter, analyze them using the Google Cloud Natural Language API, and inform the user how people on Twitter feel about a given topic.
Actions on Google is the platform where developers can build Actions for Google Assistant. Actions are conversational interactions that allow users to talk with Google Assistant (and other interfaces coming soon!). Your Action’s users will be able to ask, “How do people feel about . . .” any topic, and your Action will respond!
Google Cloud Platform is a suite of developer tools that allows you to build software that is scaffolded by Google’s core infrastructure and latest innovations. Your Action will be hosted on Google Cloud and you’ll use the Cloud Natural Language API to analyze sentiments.
Participants will need to be able to create a Google account and use Google Cloud Platform. This workshop will be completed entirely in the browser.
