SAS® Conversation Designer

Create and configure conversational bots to help users with their tasks. Each bot is an autonomous program that can interact with users and respond to questions or provide information for a given topic area. SAS Conversation Designer on the SAS® Viya® platform uses natural language processing along with a collection of intents, utterances, entities and dialogues to process data and provide information to a user. A bot user does not have to present their questions in a special format, but can simply ask questions naturally the way they would pose them to a human.

SAS Conversation Designer was retired from the SAS Viya platform in the 2023.10 release. SAS Conversation Designer is deprecated in earlier SAS Viya platform releases.
