A Model-based Chatbot Generation Approach to Converse with Open Data Sources [article]

Hamza Ed-douibi, Javier Luis Cánovas Izquierdo, Gwendal Daniel, Jordi Cabot
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This paper describes an approach to automatically derive full-fledged chatbots from API-based Open Data sources.  ...  Our process relies on a model-based intermediate representation (via UML class diagrams and profiles) to facilitate the customization of the chatbot to be generated.  ...  Therefore, to the best of our knowledge, ours is the first work aimed at automatically generating chatbots to directly interact with Open Data sources using a model-based approach.  ...
