Example Ecolect flow for natural language processing

This is a sample flow how you can set up and use the node-red-contrib-ecolect node to react to full sentence text queries.

This flow does not contain any actual processing, it just helps you to train and debug you Ecolect node for archive best results.

I also have a video explaining this flow if you need some help understanding the concept: https://youtu.be/Vz9qaUNLQ-E
