Training a test model

To ensure you're testing the most up-to-date version of your chatbot, TestBot needs a freshly trained model. If a recent model isn't available, the inGenious AI platform will automatically train a new model when you click the Start button in TestBot. Training a new model can take up to ten minutes. You won't be able to test your chatbot until the model has been trained.

Trained models are discarded:

  • If you press Stop in TestBot.
  • If you close TestBot.
  • 30 minutes after your last test.
  • If you select Preview in TestBot from a different passage.
  • If you or someone on your team starts training a new model.

You can press Restart to run a test again without discarding the model.

The TestBot model is shared across all members of your team for that chatbot. If you start a TestBot session when someone else on your team has run a test or trained a model for that chatbot in the last five minutes, you will be prompted whether you want to retrain the model or use the existing model. You should coordinate with your team members so as not to disrupt each other's tests.

Keep TestBot open

If you press the Stop button in TestBot or close TestBot, the testing model is discarded. To test your chatbot again, you will need to train a new model. We recommend leaving TestBot open if you want to continue to test your changes. The trained model will be available for thirty minutes after your most recent test.

Previewing on Facebook Messenger always trains a new model when you press the Send to Messenger button.

Do I need to train a model?

When you open TestBot, look for the message under the Start button to tell you if a model is available. If you see the message Nobody has used TestBot lately, you'll need to wait for a model to be trained before you can test your chatbot.

If you have made changes to NLP training phrases, you will need to train a new test model to see those changes in TestBot. You don't need to train a new model if you have made changes to passages, scripts, broadcasts or keyword questions: that content will update automatically in TestBot without retraining.
