FAQs and Troubleshooting

The Confidence Level indicates how certain the NLP app is that the correct intent has been assigned.
If you are confident that your NLP app is trained adequately, you can set a higher score (>0.5) for it. In that case, the bot will try to understand intents outside its training. However, if you do not want your bot to interpret more than what it has learned and act strictly on how it's trained, you can set a lower confidence score (<0.5).
On your wit.ai dashboard, go to Settings. You will find your App ID and Server Access Token there.​ The ID numbers and tokens have been hidden due to privacy concerns.
Due to API limitations, the wit.ai NLP app takes more than 30 minutes to connect with MyAlice and function properly. However, if your app is still inactive after an hour, feel free to contact us.
