Couple of months ago, I posted about a chatbot Maya that can answer basic capital markets questions. The chatbot was only accessible on Telegram at that time.
The chatbot is now accessible on Facebook Messenger with the same id MayaBOBot.
Below are the details of Maya is you missed the last post.
Maya is a chatbot which can answer basic Capital Markets domain questions, primarily focussed on the Back Office areas. It is built to help developers, BAs, testers and support personnel with quick access to information they need and greatly improve productivity. They can ask the what, why, how, who, where, etc about various types of instruments, various types of parties, various BO processes and related terms, SWIFT Messages, key SWIFT tags and qualifiers, corporate actions, accounting and key regulations. Maya aims to eliminate the wasted time in searching for information in intranet/internet or waiting for an in house expert to help.
Technically, Maya is powered by a Natural Language Understanding (NLU) model trained with more than 600 entity/value pairs across 6 intents. Maya is available with the id MayaBOBot on Telegram. This is still a beta version of the bot though.
