Girl Effect

Girl Effect

Girl Effect’s chatbot is aimed at adolescent girls in India, a place to ask questions about sexual health and relationships. Mana built the foundations of a Natural Language Processing and conversational AI based chatbot that can recognise the mixed codes/multiple languages that the girls use (Hindi, English, Hinglish) and distinguish the most relevant keywords so that the girls can be provided with relevant information.

How it works

1.Before beginning their placements, Profusion puts students through an intensive bootcamp which includes: Data Science Consulting, SQL and Advanced SQL Databases, Reinforcement Learning, Alteryx and Sisense and Statistical Traps.


2. Each student works closely with the Profusion team at their disposal and supervision from a Profusion Data Scientist.


3. After the project, their work is yours to keep, implement and use in the most impactful way for your business.
