Currently, IBM Watson is one of the most comprehensive development platforms for conversational AI that allows for the ability to create not just intelligent chatbots, but intuitive multi-modal experiences with multiple different intelligence features with voice and more.

With the Botmock + IBM Watson Export Script, anyone has the opportunity to move their Botmock Content, Intents, Variables, and more from the core Botmock platform right into Watson to be turned into a deployable conversational experience.

With the fact that the script is open source on Github, everyone is welcome to report issues that they may find with the script and also send pull requests for certain issues as well.
