Hello PH! As much as we love third party NLP APIs (wit.ai, LUIS, api.ai) for making prototypes, we found that when your bot gets some traction you inevitably want to become independent. Why should you use rasa NLU? - Own your data, don't hand everything over to Facebook / Google / Microsoft - Faster : Runs locally so no network overhead - Customisable : get better performance by tweaking models for your application. It doesn't make sense for every bot team to re-build their own NLP, so we thought we'd open source ours so we can all collaborate instead. This is our first step in making the bot community more open & collaborative, and we're extremely excited about the enthusiastic response we've received so far 🚀 Happy to answer any questions :)
Would you recommend rasa NLU to a friend?

Wow, really nice to see this on PH. I recently started building an intelligent agent to run my home automation. Am using Wit.ai, but seriously considering changing to Rasa. Well done @tombocklisch @alexweidauer & @alanmnichol

@meet_cleo well that was certainly an interesting example to showcase your product.

rasa was easy to train and customize to our use cases. We really like the extra speed gain without the roundtrip to an external provider, plus keeping our training data under our control. Great product overall!
Hey @mmariansky did you create many dialogues/conversations using RASA? What did you think? Any issues?
