IBM Developer Advocate Mark Watson (@markwatsonatx) joins developerWorks TV's Calvin Powers (@cspowers) to preview his talk at DeveloperWeek 2017, "Building and Designing Bots and Bot Architectures."

Mark discusses developers' interest in incorporating chatbots into their apps (4:18), the different types of chatbots and the messaging platforms upon which they can be built (4:58), the process and architectural components involved in building a chatbot (7:14), and how you can get started with your own chatbot using OpenWhisk, a JSON doc store for data persistence and Watson Conversation Service for natural language processing (9:01).

Learn more about Mark's work by reading his tutorial, "Persisting Data for a Smarter Chatbot," or follow Mark's Developer Advocacy team at the IBM Watson Data Lab, featured on Github and Medium.

You can get started building a chatbot of your own through the Chatbot Accelerator by developerWorks.
