We're tackling the issue of college students drinking past their personal limits. We envision that this helpful chatbot will allow college students and spirit enthusiasts to practice safe and responsible drinking while maintaining a nice buzz. It's a quick and simple tool that one can use while on the way to a party or a bar.
What it does
BuzzyBot teaches you about responsible drinking by calculating your blood alcohol content (BAC) based on your sex, weight, how long you plan to drink, and how much you plan to drink. BuzzyBot also calculates the number of drinks for an optimal buzz and allows you to compare the BAC for that amount to that of your own estimation.
How we built it
Built using Node.js, Visual Studio, and Microsoft's Bot Framework
Challenges we ran into
What's next for BuzzyBot
More educational/disclaimer content, ability to recalculate based on new estimates, ability to share bot with a friend Thanks to the versatility of the Microsoft Bot Framework, we look forward to implementing this bot on a multitude of platforms to reach as many users as possible.
