Inspiration - The concept of using chatbots for finding restaurants.
What it does - Finds restaurants and reviews in any location.
How I built it - Using AWS Lex and Lambda, along with the Google-Places-Python API.
Challenges I ran into - I initially started with a different idea and then switched to this idea late in the competition.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of - Building my first chatbot!
What I learned - How to use AWS Lex and Lambda, along with the Google Places API in python.
What's next for SuperRestaurantBot - perhaps restaurant recommendations and ordering service with restaurants.
