Technical Overview



Key feature :


  1. User Interface: The user interface that users interact with to communicate with the chatbot. This can include a web portal, mobile app, or any other type of front-end interface.
  2. Azure OpenAI Services: The Azure OpenAI service that powers the chatbot's intelligence. It includes natural language processing (NLP) capabilities that enable the chatbot to understand and respond to user requests.
  3. Power Apps: The Power Apps platform that enables the creation of custom mobile apps that can integrate with the chatbot. Power Apps provides a platform to create custom mobile apps that can integrate with the chatbots, providing a seamless user experience.
  4. Power Automate: The Power Automate platform that enables the creation of automated workflows that can be triggered by the chatbot. This enables the chatbot to automate processes and complete tasks on behalf of the user.

Azure OpenAI Services 
Azure OpenAI is a cloud-based platform that provides access to a wide range of artificial intelligence (AI) tools and services. It is a part of Microsoft Azure, which is a collection of cloud services for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers.

Power Automate

The integration of Power Apps with Azure OpenAI services involves using Power Automate to create a streamlined workflow that allows users to ask questions and receive answers from the chat playground. This workflow is initiated when the user selects a designated button within the Power Apps app to obtain an answer.

To process the user's query and obtain the corresponding answer, the workflow uses an HTTP request to transmit the query to the question answering service's prediction URL. The input text field contents are retrieved and included in the body of the HTTP request. The Azure OpenAI service processes the query using its AI-based algorithms and returns the corresponding answer via the HTTP response.

This approach enables a seamless integration between Power Apps and Azure OpenAI Services, allowing users to access powerful AI capabilities within their apps without needing to switch to a separate application or interface.
