Microsoft Azure launches Virtual Assistant Accelerator I Newshorts
Microsoft Azure recently launched the Virtual Assistant Accelerator, which promises to develop conversational bots to enhance personalised content delivery across multiple devices. Talking about this technology at Trescon’s World AI Show, Microsoft said, “We are unlocking the power of AI to amplify human ingenuity and develop the overall national capabilities and economy.”
Azure Bot Service helps developers build, connect, deploy, and manage intelligent bots to interact naturally with users on websites, apps, Cortana, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, Facebook Messenger, and more. With over 360,000+ registered Azure Bot Service developers, we are constantly improving our tools and framework to make them more productive.
Today, we’re announcing the preview of an open source bot solution accelerator for virtual assistants. This solution accelerator simplifies the creation of branded virtual assistants, enabling developers to get started in minutes. Additionally, the Bot Framework software development kit and Tools version 4.1 is generally available, enabling developers to be more productive with bot development. Finally, Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire XOXCO, a software product design studio most known for its conversational AI and bot development capabilities.
