Well, you can build a solution for just about any use case. Whether it’s a lead generation bot, a bot to take appointments for doctors, a bot for checking the weather, a bot that can onboard customers, a bot that can help people with first aid. You can choose one from these or you can come up with your own unique use cases. 

Number of team members required
You can either work individually or form a team of up to 3 people. You can start learning how to use the developer.dhee.ai platform right now.

Submitting your bot entry
Please find below the process to follow.

  • Create a Project on developer.dhee.ai . The project name should follow the following naming convention. <Hackathon2021><TeamName_Captain_Full_Name>_<Project_name>
  • In the description space, while creating the bot, you would write what is the use case of the bot. A good explanation will help the judges understand your solution better.
  • In the Agent setting, under Team, add hackathon@dhee.ai as a team member with access permission as “Administrator of Project”. 
  • Make sure you test the project to your satisfaction ( No need to Deploy)
  • Rest is on us. 

Do I need to purchase any of Dhee.AI’s SaaS plans to create the solution?
Absolutely not. Select the plan depending on the requirements of your solution. You won’t be asked for payment or for entering your credit card details. Payments are asked only when you deploy your bot to a channel. Here, there’s no requirement for deploying your bot. You just build, and test your bot to your satisfaction & leave it there before the deadline. Make sure all the above processes are done correctly. In case of any queries, we are always just a telegram away.

When will the results come out?
The jury will consist of experts from the conversational AI industry and also from various industry verticals.
