The inspiration was to use the millions of users of Facebook, Slack, Kik, and other social communities and educate them about Solar in an intuitive way using a bot called SolarKohli.
What it does
It takes inputs from users like knowing if the user owns a rooftop, gets to know if a user is interested in solar energy, and then promotes the use of solar energy. It can also answer questions by querying into DBpedia.
How we built it
We built it using ruby, DBpedia, git, wit.ai
Challenges we ran into
Training the bot was a massive challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having a bot on the FB messenger app live
What we learned
Great insight into the solar field.
What's next for SolarKohli
Going into domains like pushing ads of solar panels and having a more trained ai
