Want to build this?

Extract questions and answers

QnA Maker extracts all possible pairs of questions and answers from user-provided content: FAQ URLs, documents and editorial content.

Test, train and publish

Edit, remove or add pairs with the easy-to-use interface, then publish your knowledge base as an API endpoint.

Integrate with other APIs and solutions

QnA Maker integrates with other APIs seamlessly and at scale. Use QnA Maker with Cognitive Services such as the Language Understanding Intelligent Service and create something as elegantly simple as a chat bot that answers FAQs, or as complex as an interactive virtual guide.
