Students need to keep track of multiple information sources to get information about locations, faculty, process information, calendar details or to keep track of current events in the university
What it does
Cincy is a virtual assistant which answers user's queries about University of Cincinnati or it's entities. It also allows administrators to create events and add faculty information which will be shown to users if they ask about the same.
How we built it
We used a Azure bot builder sdk in python with a combination of Microsoft QnA service to create the Bot. The web admin part of it was created using Bootstrap and PHP
Challenges we ran into
Linking up the Microsoft Bot Builder to FB Bot was not successful. Hence deployment was not complete. For demonstration had to use local system with ngrok to receive messages from FB.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Successful usage of MS QNA service. Building the bot and integrating it to MS QNA Service. Building basic web admin part using bootstrap. Building API Service to add events and faculty details.
What we learned
Using Microsoft Cognitive services
What's next for Cincy
Make it available for public. Add more features
