I have been in the financial services industry most of my life and found financial planning to be a slow, costly and inefficient process.
What it does
My Finchat skill for Alexa tries to make the process immediate, cost-effective and as painless as possible.
How I built it
I built it using node.js in Lambda triggered by an Alexa skill.
## Challenges I ran into
The challenges were numerous, especially as there were so many possible paths. To address this I tried to keep the user on "rails" giving few options as an utterance.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud that I got to the end although there is no end as it will be on a continuous path of improvement
What I learned
Keep the user on rails
What's next for Finchat, revolutionizing financial planning
I think this technology has a great future in all the professions.
