How to set slots after implementing a classifier

I plan to build a project which uses NLP based classifiers to fill slots in forms. For example, if the bot asks the user a question I want to set the slot based on the predicted value of my NLP classifier from the user’s free text. I know that an alternative to this is using entities but I’m wondering if the slots for the forms can be filled in the way that was mentioned.

Hi @BillNyeSenpai,

I don’t know the answer to your question, but may be I can help to clarify what your question is…

Is your “NLP classifier” not part of the pipeline defined in config.yml of rasa? The reason why I’m asking is because I have some problems understanding why you would want to set slots rather than entities. Maybe you bring your own classifier that has nothing to do with Rasa, yet?

No, it’s something that I plan to build and import as a pickle file
