PicStarter is a chat-bot developed for Latitude financial services. The goal of the project was to develop a platform where a user could easy communication via SMS with the bot to help determine an appropriate loan type. We wanted to avoid the restrictive “Please select A, B or C” options. and take advantage of natural language processing and machine learning.

The entire project was built with Python due to its support for multi-threading, queuing and natural language processing.

My role within the project was to design and develop the technical and infrastructure solution along with the core application logic, queuing system and external API systems.
