  3. Tutorial: Building an agent on over.ai
  4. Overview

Overview

The over.ai developers platform enables you to customize the functionality of Omega, over.ai’s digital assistant, and to leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) technologies.

This technology enables businesses and organizations to be more connected with their customers, providing a higher level of service and making employee hours more efficient. 

As a developer, you can use the over.ai developers platform to make bots for any purpose, from ordering pizza to creating an intelligent digital assistant.

What you’ll build

In this tutorial, we will take you through the process of creating a new agent, and will demonstrate to you the capabilities and functions of the over.ai platform that can be leveraged by developers.

 

As an example, we will imagine that you are the owner of Pizza ’n Stuff, a New York based mom-and-pop pizza brand that is trying to reduce the amount of time they are on the phone taking orders and increase the amount of time they have to focus on what really matters – making pizza.
