IBM Watsonx Assistant is a cloud-based service that allows you to build virtual assistants. You can use it to create chatbots that can answer customer questions, complete tasks, and provide support.

There are several benefits to using Watsonx Assistant, including:

  • Easy to use: Even if you don’t have any coding experience, you can build a virtual assistant with Watsonx Assistant.

  • Scalable: Watsonx Assistant can handle a large number of users at the same time.

  • Customizable: You can create virtual assistants that are specific to your needs.

  • Analytics: Watsonx Assistant provides analytics that can help you track the performance of your virtual assistant and identify areas for improvement.

Watsonx Assistant is a newer version of Watson Assistant with a simplified user interface and an improved deployment process. Assistants created in one experience cannot be transferred to the other, but you can easily switch back and forth between the two.

A skill is a container for your virtual assistant’s abilities. You can add multiple skills to an assistant. An action represents a specific task that your assistant can perform, such as answering a question or completing a transaction.

You can train your assistant by creating dialog nodes. A dialog node represents a possible conversation turn between the user and the assistant. Each dialog node includes:

  • A condition that determines if the node should be processed.

  • User prompts that the assistant can say.

  • Actions that the assistant can take.

Yes, Watsonx Assistant provides access to pre-built intents that you can add to your skills. Intents are groups of related user queries that your assistant can identify.

You can deploy your Watsonx Assistant as a managed cloud service or install it on-premises.

Watsonx Assistant provides a suite of analytics tools that can help you track the performance of your virtual assistant. You can use these tools to see which actions are being used the most, identify areas where users are having trouble, and improve your assistant overall.

You cannot directly export conversations from the conversation page. However, you can use the provided API or a script to access conversation transcripts.
