SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AI—Nerdify,
a leading educational platform that connects students and personal
assistants, is excited to announce the launch of Nerdy Bot — a new
educational project on Facebook Messenger. Nerdy Bot will help students
speed up their studying routine by instantly delivering answers to
simple homework-related questions.
Nerdy Bot is a smart Facebook Messenger bot that is powered by a
combination of AI and Human Personal Assistants. Designed by Nerdify to
tackle a range of college-related tasks through Messenger, Nerdy Bot
relies on AI to quickly answer simple questions and refers to Human
assistance to deal with advanced requests. The AI component of Nerdy Bot
excels at solving math equations, plotting graphs, looking up
definitions, and finding historical events. On complex tasks where AI
falls short, Nerdy Bot gives students an option to find a qualified
human assistant to handle their task. Unlike other bots, communication
with Nerdy Bot is seamless and natural. This is achieved through the use
of open source and proprietary NLP engines which enable Nerdy Bot to
easily recognize students’ questions.
The official launch date of Nerdy
Bot is May 20, 2017.
