Messenger is an entirely new platform that allows new levels of interaction. We know people have a big passion for comic books as well as the entire Marvel universe, so we decided to use this to our advantage and combine the two.
What it does
We built a Messenger bot that allows your to get all relevant information you might ever need about the Marvel universe. The bot is predicitive of your needs and gives you a way to access information you want before you even ask for it. When using the bot, you don't have to use any special syntax. Just ask it a normal question, and it will answer the question for you! On top of all this, you can use Postmates to order some shawarma when you search the right term! ;)
How we built it
We built Captain Marvel using Node.js, Wit.ai, and Heroku.
Challenges we ran into
Properly training our bot to understand natural language input was a task new to all team members, so we spent some time getting natural language working.
