Working with Entities
Entity represents object or term or synonyms that is relevant to your intents. Let us understand how to work with entities.
Entities are elements in the text that your Bot is going to recognize according to the training you give it. Within a chatbot, an entity modifies user intent. Chatbot entities are connected to knowledge repositories so as to supply more personal and accurate responses on user search. An entity during a chatbot is employed to feature values to the search intent.
Entities can be fields, data, or text describing just about anything — a time, place, person, item, number, etc. Using natural language processing (NLP), chatbots can extract entities from entries that users type in order to turn around accurate recommendations and answers.
Knowing the difference between intent and entity is critical to using chatbots for customer service. Intent implies what the customer is looking for.
Intent and entities in chatbots are both essential to delivering what the customer wants and needs.
