Hands-on with CALM: An LLM-native approach to reliable conversational AI

Alan will give an in-depth, hands-on tutorial to building assistants with CALM, Rasa’s new, LLM-native approach to building reliable conversational AI. We’ll start by bootstrapping a new assistant, integrating advanced branching logic, API integrations, and handling advanced conversations, including digressions, disambiguation, interruption, context switching, and users changing their minds. The tutorial will cover both pro-code and low-code approaches to building with Rasa.
