Staples’ “Easy Button” Case Study: How To Simplify Shopping Experience By Creating AI Assistant Using IBM Watson

By tapping into IBM’s Watson Conversation service, Staples offers a seamless ordering interface for customers – whether it’s via Staples’ proprietary next-generation Easy Button, through the app, text, email, over Facebook Messenger or with a Slackbot. Come and learn how Staples did it and develop your own bot based on IBM Watson.  During the workshop you will learn how to use IBM Watson APIs including speech to text, text to speech and Watson Assistant. We will give special attention to the complexity of the dialog and how the context variables may affect the interaction with the bot.   The session is practical, so please don’t forget to bring your laptop and make sure you have an IBM Cloud account. If you don’t have one, you can sign up for free at: One more thing – you will get a 6-month promocode worth $1200 USD in IBM Cloud services, so you can easily build and deploy apps to production environment in the cloud.
