One of our teammate Gowtham balachandhiran gave this beautiful use case which can help people with mental stress or depression
What it does
The bot selectively instructs the user to do challenges such as planting trees and asks them to upload photos as proof. The user has to wait for 24 hours to know the next challenge(disabled for testing reasons). This naturally creates a curiosity to know the next set of challenges. According to psychologist curiosity creates positive vibes and reduces stress. This phenomenon can also suspend suicide thoughts.

What's next for Olive the Bot
We are working on new updates in our bot like adding much more days of challenges so that it will consider as a complete cure for depression and we are discussing to add feature to evaluate the task images using OCR to give user a actual experience.
