Can you find how much of your inventory is on hand or allocated? Which product lines your customers are buying, and in what volume? Can you do it hands-free? In this session, we demonstrate live how **IBM Watson** can help an inventory or sales manager understand how much stock is available, who is buying and selling it, and spot important trends. We *leverage speech-to-text, text-to-speech, natural language processing, good ol’ SQL, and train a chatbot engine* to implement more than a chatbot: a *hands-free, truly interactive* application, powered by Watson in the cloud, using inventory, customer, and sales data.
[Update] As attendees know, the demonstration of the Waston Assistant (Conversation) chatbot didn't happen because *I could not find the chatbot instance in my account!* I finally figured out that IBM Cloud created a *new* empty Assistant instance within my workspace, and of course my chatbot was in the original instance. These instance screens look identical (except for the missing chatbot). If you experience the same thing, click the "change" button on the upper right, and you'll see a list of instances within the workspace.
