Getting Started with Wit.ai
As mentioned at the beginning of the book, all the big players are entering the exciting field of conversational interfaces. This means that Google’s Dialogflow is not the only option for analyzing and understanding the user’s spoken (or written) input. Facebook has its own product, called Wit.ai. In this chapter, you will explore Wit.ai and compare it to Dialogflow. Wit.ai’s vision is to offer developers an open and extensible natural language platform that learns human language from every interaction. What’s interesting is that everything that’s learned is shared with all developers, which is quite useful because the platform is used by more than 120,000 developers.
