Simulating a conversation and building a chatbot
Before moving Pega Intelligent Virtual Assistant™ (IVA) to a production environment, you can verify whether the system works correctly by interacting with the chatbot using the preview console. You use the preview console to simulate a conversation for your business application and build the chatbot, to ensure that the chatbot knows how to correctly respond and detect information from user input.Working in the preview console also improves the text analysis and artificial intelligence of the IVA channel. After making any changes to the channel configuration in the preview console, rebuild the text analytics model.
