Is anyone using IBM Watson Conversation?

Is anyone using this as a platform to build their bots at the moment?

We are in talks with them right now, they are in our backyard here in Boulder. Unfortunately we just haven’t gotten into even needing the power of their platform, plus it’s pretty expensive actually (they do have credits for startups though we got like $120k). Their Conversation plugin is not really any better than the other platforms that are out there and in some ways worse.

On the cost thing they charge $.0089 per api call. Hard to justify that when we are charging our customers $.0039 per interaction. Either that or we are way underpriced. haha
