Why choose E.D.D.I over other technologies

We have asked that question to our users and here are some reasons they mentioned

  • It is open source 💚
  • The configuration is extremely open and flexible
  • The code is self-explanatory and easy to extend
  • E.D.D.I is channel independent, therefore can be used anywhere
  • The (NLP) parser is extremely cool
  • The framework is focused and does not pretend to be the magic bullet that solves it all
  • Great tech stack, when you want to build a chatbot product yourself


The Chatbot System - E.D.D.I (Enhanced Dialog Driven Intelligence), has been developed with the focus on the use in enterprise applications as well as the ease of connecting it to other resources (such as databases or other services).
This platform has been developed for over many years and completely restructured from scratch four times because of logical "dead ends" in the art of building chatbots - thus version 4.
The most outstanding features are:
  • Flexible in NLP and Behavior
  • Fluently connect to REST APIs
  • Powerful Templating
  • Reuse Conversation Flows in multiple bots
technical spec:
  • Resource- / REST-oriented architecture
  • OAuth 2.0 / Basic Authentication
  • Java
  • JAX-RS
  • Dependency Injection
  • Embedded Jetty
  • NoSQL
  • HTML, CSS, Javascript, JSON
