We wanted to solve the problem of lack of entertainment and unorganized food ordering procedure in flights. So, we created this chatbot to solved the problem.
What it does
It is an in-flight entertainment system for Airlines which gives the passengers a more personalized feel
How we built it
We build it by diving our team into three parts. 2people worked on the android application, 2 on designing the chatbot and one in designing the admin panel and database.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into lots of challenges including errors, code corruption, internet etc. But majorly training the chatbot to understand all of the user inputs correctly was a bigger challange of all.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our idea was having multiple functionalities which was very hard to implement them in a very short duration of less than 24 hours. However, we completed most of the functionalities and created a good working Proof of Concept before completion of the hackathon.
What we learned
We have learned many things including generating dynamic responses with a cognitive chatbot, dealing with special options, Image and video urls. Playing around with context variables.
What's next for IndigoBot
In near future, we will complete remaining functionalities and make it a full fledged market ready product of BotLabs.
