Sitecore Cognitive Services: Ole Chat

January 02, 2020

For those of you who don't know what Ole [oh-la] is, it is a chat bot for use within the backend of Sitecore. Some of the key features:

  • works on mobile
  • can be translated
  • is extensible
  • cost is minor or free
  • supports voice input

If that's not enough of a reason for you to try it, then just consider it's using cutting edge Microsoft machine learning technology!

Sitecore Cognitive Services: Intelligent Search

September 16, 2019

For a few years now I've been pushing the idea of using machine learning to rethink how we build websites. Today I've got more good news. In yet another example, we can now get a lot closer to building a google like search experience for all the Sitecore sites we build. The sample project I've put together to demonstrate this is called "Intelligent Search" and is built on top of the Sitecore Cognitive Services "Core" and uses Microsoft's LUIS to parse input questions for a search form to answer common domain specific questions as well as engage in conversations with the user. 

Sitecore Cognitive Services: Core

Are you ready to add cloud based machine learning APIs to your Sitecore solution? Then save yourself some time and use Sitecore Cognitive Services.

What is it, you ask? It's a series of .NET API connectors (the core) and new features built on that core. It's open source and available on GitHub or Nuget. You can use what's there, improve on them or even build your own using the existing ones a model.

February 27, 2018

I'm excited to announce the release of the cognitive services I've been working on for the last year as marketplace modules. I present to you the Cognitive Core, the Image Search and Ole Chat. Of all the ideas it generated, being able to polish up two into pretty practical modules was really satisftying.
