Hello Product Hunt!

We initially built Instant to track your life automatically on a dashboard. We track your phone usage, sleep, places, travel and fitness. (Apps on Android too)
But we realised, users need more value out of their data. We started out with building weekly reports. Moving ahead, a Chatbot Coach in the app made sense since users can easily query their data. More importantly, the Coach passively analyses your trends and correlations. Example: You’ve been sleeping better from the past three days since your walking has increased.
Looking forward to your feedback! Here is a Medium post on how we built it: https://medium.com/@shashwatprad...

@shashwatpradhan this is awesome.. did you guys build chatbot as a lib that can be integrated in other apps? or was it an extension of an open source lib..

@maddynator if you are talking about the UI, on Android we built it from scratch. For iOS we used JSQMessenger: https://github.com/jessesquires/...
I would recommend building it from scratch to keep it flexible.

@shashwatpradhan thanks but I am interested in the AI part... you mentioned in medium that its all done locally.. how does bot interpret and extract data from local store.

@maddynator we have some basic NLP algorithms and mappings to understand the user input. Further it is converted into DB queries to fetch the data.

@shashwatpradhan awesome.. any good resource for quick ramp up.. or a dirty objC example.. which NLP algo are you using.. I found a couple on google..

@maddynator all our NLP/mappings was made from scratch since the data and logic was specific for our app. You can drop me an email on shashwat@emberify.com if you need help with anything specific.

@shashwatpradhan this is awesome, did you guys build the messaging platform in house?
M
Shashwat Pradhan — CEO/Founder @emberify

@shashwatpradhan thanks for the quick reply, PH newsletter!

@shashwatpradhan is there a reason why you didn't use external chat api ? (e.g. white label solutions, FB and etc)

@yaekyum we wanted to build a native solution since we keep all the user's data only on the phone for privacy reasons.

@shashwatpradhan Looking forward to giving this another try!
