Waleed Mohamed Rdwan, a student from Egypt, created VirtuAssist, your personal AI assistant using PictoBlox. This remarkable project enables users to stay organized and on top of their commitments effortlessly. Through the VirtuAssist app, users can input events and tasks, receiving daily reminders at 7 am. The app also features a chatbot that provides psychological support, offering users valuable advice and guidance on various topics.
The project integrates advanced technologies, such as Amazon Web Services’ Text to Speech Extension, Natural Language Processing, and IFTTT Webhooks. The Text to Speech extension allows users to output synthesized speech, while Natural Language Processing enables the creation and training of text classifiers. Additionally, IFTTT Webhooks are used to send data to the cloud.
