ChatBot Python SoW

    I work in a special school and we have developed an SoW to teach programing Python by creating a chatbot. The pupils can create some quite sophisticated variables to simulate a discussion. The aim is to pass the Turing Test

    I read recently about using the Google Cloud Speech API with Python.

    My questions are:

    1) Could this technology be incorporated into my project so they get a talking chatbot?
    2) Does anybody have any experience of doing something similar?

    Many thanks

    I can't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to do it. After all, that's what it's for.

    The only way would be to have a thorough read through their documentation. If you're a specialist with a good grasp of programming it shouldn't be an insurmountable task.

    However, performance wise it's probably going to be unworkable. Every time the user speaks, the program will have to open a recorder, record the voice, save it, open a connection with google, check the API Key, upload file, recruit downloaded file, parse data, output. That's not going to be quick.
