About this Workshop

In this workshop, participants will learn how to build an FAQ bot using Microsoft Azure’s QnAMaker.ai tool. They will then learn how to incorporate the chatbot into a simple web page.


Chat Bots

QnAMaker.ai allows users to upload a list of FAQs and creates a Chat Bot service that can be easily incorporated into your webpage.
