What am I looking at?

Rasa is a framework for building conversational software: Messenger/Slack bots, Alexa skills, etc. We'll abbreviate this as a bot in this documentation.

What's cool about it?

Rather than a bunch of if/else statements, the logic of your bot is based on a machine learning model trained on example conversations.

That sounds harder than writing a few if statements.

In the beginning of a project, it seems easier to just hard code some logic. Rasa helps you when you want to go past that and create a bot that can handle more complexity. This blog post explains the philosophy behind Rasa Core.

Can I see it in action?

We thought you'd never ask! You can build a full example without installing anything, just go to the quickstart!
