The type of system that you want to configure. This parameter has the following options:
Answerbank. A system that provides defined answers to a defined set of questions (such as an FAQ). If you create an Answerbank system, you must configure a dedicated Agentstore component to store the questions and question equivalence classes. You define the location of this Agentstore component by setting IDOLHost and IDOLACIPort.
Factbank. A system that provides a simple, factual answer to a question. If you create a Factbank system, you must configure:
a fact store. You can use a SQL database, a Lua script, or an IDOL Content Component as your fact store. Use the ConnectionString parameter if you use a SQL database. Use the ScriptPath and ScriptFunction parameters if you use a Lua fact store. Use the IDOLHost and IDOLACIPort parameters if you use an IDOL Content component (this option is deprecated - see BackendType).
Passageextractor. A system that extracts relevant answers from documents stored in an IDOL Content component. If you create a Passageextractor system, you must configure:
the Eduction grammars to use to identify entities in text that might form answers, and to identify sentences and paragraph that might form answers. Use the EductionGrammars parameter.
Conversation. A system that runs a conversation task to answer user questions in a real time instant messaging environment. If you create a Conversation system, you must configure:
a task configuration JSON file that defines the settings for the conversation task. Use the TaskConfigurationFile parameter.
