Inspiration

As Corona virus outbreak hitting the world badly I thought I should contribute something to fight against it but initially I was not aware how?

CEO of Inference solutions who built the first corona chatbot using Google Dialogflow NLP framework and which inspired me to extend this solution further by adding support for multiple languages.

(#InferenceFightBackCorona #CoronaFAQ)

What it does

As we all know that Information is Vital during these hard times. Getting authenticity of information is very essential to fight together against the Novel COVID-19 pandemic.

This corona FAQ bot provides text answers to questions related to COVID-19 with reference to World Health Organisation (WHO) website and also includes some useful video links with the answers to share the information in a better way.
