We wanted to facilitate the research and booking of train tickets in Switzerland!
What it does
The BOT we made, permits to see all the solutions to reach any destination using SBB along with many details. But it will look like chatting with a friend thanks to the artificial intelligent and the language recognition,
How we built it
We coded a telegram bot, using the Microsoft Bot Framework and a node.js Application
Challenges we ran into
Many! SBB APIs got many tough problems. As well Microsoft Azure is not optimized for Node.js. We had also to train a lot our artificial Intelligence
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our artificial intelligence recognizes lot of our useful phrases, it gets into your mind!
What we learned
We learned that creating a bot it's not that easy, especially when you have to put together many different technologies
What's next for SBB_TelegramBot
We want to add a trip planner functionality, we are almost there!
