Deploy models programmatically

I'd like to automate the process of building, training, and deploying NLU models. This is a larger feature track of work.

    Hi George - could you please provide more context and use case around this? We do have plans to provide a training and deploy api soon, and your inputs will be valuable.

    Training and deploying programmatically would be a huge step toward automating the deployed NLU models. As a user I would like to be able to have my NLU models treated as code, checked into VCS, and autodeployed when a build is pushed through a CI/CD process. Having a training and deployment API would be a huge step in this direction. If you'd like a beta user for your api I'd be more than happy to take part and offer feedback.
