4)      Team Let's do it in Production

  1. Team members: Willy Ci and Leslie Rutter
  2. Project name: Find a Doctor and their information
  3. Description of the project: 

A bot service that responds to dialog via chat or Cortana to help users find a doctor and have the information sent to their phone, email or slack. Unfortunately, we couldn't attach Cortana due to limitation of our MSDN accounts. We are using LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligent Service) to help decipher the intent of the user's query: find a doctor, send their information to a device, ask a frequently asked question (not set up yes). Using Azure to host our project with continuous deployment

implemented Microsoft's bot service (now called Bot Channel) 

implemented LUIS, provides keys to easily incorporate into your project

written in C#, Framework 4.6, MVC. 

Azure Search API to get the results of our search returning a JSON file

For our mock doctor data, we are using our UMass Chan Profile's faculty. For now, we have some restrictions as the API does an exact match on Department or Title so if a user types in "chair" and not the exact wording of "chair and assistant professor" no match is returned. We can teach LUIS the multiple words but need to update the API to do a global search. However, the basic functionality of the bot, LUIS and API work as expected and while the set up of our code in Azure was complicated, the implementation of LUIS, the API and the actual coding was very straight forward thanks for some online tutorials. LUIS is extremely easy to get up and running, and the continuous integration into Azure is seamless.
