  • Learnings: “Before joining the course I never thought I could make a chatbot. After joining, I learned many new concepts and was able to make a healthcare chatbot that eases the burden on healthcare professionals. I made it using SAP Conversational AI with guidance from my mentor, Avinash Seth, and help from my teammates. The chatbot asks for the user’s symptoms and responds accordingly with possible diagnosis, links for additional reading, and medication. I want to thank my mentor for encouraging me to build a LinkedIn profile and share the chatbot features there. It was a fun experience and I am still learning how to choose correct tags and hashtags to reach out to maximum people. I felt very happy when my chatbot post got recognized and helped me get an internship.
