Moving Microsoft Healthcare Bot to Azure and empowering organizations to deliver even better care for patients.
Build engaging communication experiences with the same secure platform used by Microsoft Teams. Add video, voice, SMS, chat, and telephony capabilities into almost any web, mobile, or desktop application.
See the list of enhancements and new capabilities designed to make chatbot development more productive, including the GAs of Bot Framework Composer and Virtual Assistant solution accelerators, as well as support for human hand-off scenarios.
Azure Bot Service, built on Microsoft Bot Framework, makes it easier to develop bots and intelligent agents. New enhancements include: Adaptive dialogs enable developers to create more sophisticated, dynamic conversations.
Language Understanding service makes it easier to build language models by extending roles to all entity types, dynamic lists, and providing a new analytics dashboard.
New feature enhancements to the Microsoft Bot Framework allow developers to handle complex dialogs with users while also enjoying more natural language experiences. The updates include the ability to improve the dialog management process — necessitating less code by using adaptive dialogs. Additionally, Language Generation allows developers to decouple language resources for their bot and then manage those resources in separate files, avoiding the need to hardcode bot responses.
QnA Maker now can handle multi-turn conversation and is even more simple to deploy without code
The virtual assistant solution accelerator simplifies creation of your own assistant, enabling you to get started in minutes.
On December 4, 2018, the Azure Bot Service will require all connections to be secured using transport layer security (TLS) 1.2.
We're pleased to announce updates to the Bot Framework that will provide developers with more tools and streamlined integration to other services for developing bots.
