Teneo Platform 7.3 Overview

Teneo Studio

Conversational Language Understanding

Teneo 7.3 brings Microsoft's Conversational Language Understanding (CLU) closer to the Studio developer with the possibility to create and maintain CLU intent models directly in Teneo Studio.
CLU is a service provided by Microsoft in the Cognitive Services layer in the Azure ecosystem and the service allows users to train and query natural language understanding models using state-of-the-art, transformer-based, pre-trained language models which even provide multilingual capabilities!

CLU Settings

A new Account page in Teneo Studio (before opening a solution) allows the Teneo user to manage CLU credentials completely by themselves as long as the user has the correct permission.

CLU Manager

The CLU Manager allows to train CLU intent models based on the classes and training data examples added in the Class Manager; it is also here the developer can assign a trained model to the solution or set a specific assignment as the stable version.

Class Manager

The Class Manager brings support for test data examples and linked test examples which can be used when testing the solution's intent model; the import functionality is extended in Studio Desktop to support not only import of classes and training data but also test data.

Test data examples can be added to classes both in Studio Desktop and Studio Web.

Test Data Evaluation

With Teneo 7.3 it is now possible to perform Test Data Evaluations of the solution's intent model by using the test data examples provided either directly in a class or as linked test examples.

Due to the implementation of the Deferred Classification described further below, two new buttons are available in the Tryout to allow developers to test inputs either with the new lazy classification or by re-creating the behavior known from previous Teneo versions.

As of Teneo 7.3, developers can restrict the scope of the displayed data in the Classifier by selecting a Revision Range and / or a Date Range.

Flow Variable Description

Developers of Teneo Studio can now add descriptions to Flow Variables both in Studio Desktop and Studio Web.

Visual Warning for Non-Input Consuming Transitions

With the Give Response label in the flow editor, the flow graph kind of indicates that all transitions leaving a Give Response label are also "Get input before continuing" or input consuming. But not all the transitions leaving the Give Response label have to be input consuming, and when they are not, the behavior can be unexpected which is why Teneo 7.3 introduces a visual warning in the flow graph allowing developers to easily spot this difference in transitions and thereby review the wanted behavior of the highlighted transition.

Teneo Generative QnA

The Teneo Generative QnA template is a starter kit which enables projects to quickly set up a Conversational AI application using OpenAI services on the Teneo Platform to use it to answer questions based on a custom controlled source of information.

Studio Web

Developers of Teneo solutions can now add On-top and On-drop Flow scripts in flows in Teneo Studio Web, or even enable and disable documents.

Teneo Languages


The Czech NLU Ontology and Semantic Network has been improved with + 9,000 Language Objects and Entities to cater for the completely new Czech Conversational Modules.

Variable Names

Variable names are updated in the Teneo Dialogue Resources to use camelCase conventions.

Input Processors

Predict IP

The Predict Input Processor is modified to cater for the usage of CLU models in Teneo; a new annotation variable is added with information of which intent classifier is used.
Note that due to the deferred or explained below, class annotations are now only created when Predict is called by Engine during the matching process.

Teneo Engine

Deferred Classification

Teneo 7.3 brings an update in the behavior of the Teneo Engine with deferred input classification allowing Engine to - on demand - call the Predict Input Processor during the matching process to create class annotations only when references to these are encountered.

Read more

IP Messages in Engine Logs

The Input Processors are extended to enable them to send log messages to the engine log after which Engine logs these together with the session Id and the transaction Id (when available).

Technology and Deployment

Teneo Manager

With Teneo 7.3 comes an entirely new Teneo Manager User Interface (UI) based on React presenting a more modern look and feel, but also allowing to keep the technology up-to-date and secure.
