Sympto-Bot welcome page
Google Cloud's Dialogueflow Essentials was used to train the virtual agent to respond properly to user input.
Sympto-Bot can display COVID-19 data visuals when prompted to do so.
Sympto-Bot can navigate you to the closest testing center.
Sympto-Bot provides free risk assessments that consider your gender, age, preexisting conditions, and symptoms to assess risk.
We wanted to create a bot that would work with the current information about the COVID-19 pandemic and help people understand what they should do in order to face the problem. The best way to return to our daily lives is to follow all the given guidelines as we go about our day.
What it does
Sympto-Bot, a virtual agent that is capable of responding to everyone’s COVID questions and concerns. Sympto-Bot uses machine learning to dynamically answer questions and offers free risk assessment, directions to COVID testing centers, and COVID data visuals.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
One of the challenges we encountered during this event was gathering enough, and accurate, data about the COVID-19 pandemic and how best to disseminate it to our users.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
For many of out teammates, this project was our first time working with technologies such as Node.js and Google Dialogflow. We are very proud that we’ve been able to not only utilize these capabilities, but make them work together to create something unique.
What we learned
What's next for Sympto-Bot
The current Sympto-bot deploys its’ capability as a web browser, but it can be deployed on any platform like a mobile or a desktop app. In the future we would like to add additional functionality like calling 911 for severe symptoms that may need emergency treatment, improvements to the scope of the questions that the virtual agent is capable of answering, and a service that can provide periodical updates on the COVID situation in your area.
