Interpreters and natural language understanding (NLU)
An interpreter matches an utterance with an intent. For instance, the utterance "What will the temperature be like today?" can get matched to a "temperature" intent.
OpenDialog comes with a default interpreter as discussed on the next page.
In addition, we can set up interpreters to connect to NLU services from providers such as Google’s DialogFlow, Amazon’s Lex, or Microsoft Azure’s LUIS, to give a few examples.
Interpreters are managed through the "Interpret" menu. There are steps to set up the integration between OpenDialog and the NLU service, and to provide a mapping of intents between the two so they can work together.
A single scenario can have multiple interpreters associated with it.
