Q: Is Watson Assistant free?
A: Watson Assistant is a chatbot service available on the IBM Cloud. Once you register for a free account, you'll be able to use the free tier of the service.

Thankfully, IBM is offering you a unique opportunity to partner with them and get roughly 10 times the resources each month, for a whole year!
