Description

The objective of this project was to build a conversational interface and analytics dashboard for viaSport BC's newest inclusive sport initiative. Tasked by the provincial government to be the lead agency responsible for promoting and developing amateur sport in British Columbia, viaSport's purpose is to champion positive changes so that more British Columbians thrive via sport and physical activity. One challenge in this space is the access to resources for the community of athletes with disabilities. To tackle this, the team built an intelligent chat bot to simplify the search for resources, allowing coaches, sport leaders, and participants in all sports to provide appropriate programming and services to athletes with a disability.
