Remember the things you easily forget

The simplicity here is wonderful. If it works as well as the examples on the homepage then I think you're onto something.

I know I often find myself struggling to remember things these days, and with Google having replaced a large percentage of our memory needs, I imagine others are the same. So for me, this product clearly has a good use case and seems like a super slick experience, but I'd still rather invest in my memory again, otherwise I fear what it'll be like by the time I'm 70!

Great work with this @jsngr @shivkanthb ๐Ÿ™Œ

Just 'remembered ๐Ÿ˜', nah, thought of a great use case for this!

When going to catch the train, what do I need to remember? Ticket, Railcard, Keys, Wallet (etc)

Command: Train Journey
Response: Don't forget your ticket, railcard, keys and wallet

Next level could link physical e.g. 'just tracked that you left your keys in the fridge again'.

@bentossell @jsngr @shivkanthb Yeah auto setup quick commands like that that know what you'll need to take with you would be cool. If you could then customise them like 'flights' returns medical details and any other custom bits. I could see the benefit here.

This looks awesome! Any more info on how you built it from a technical point of view? Plans to expand to other platforms? (Telegram, Messenger, etc.) Sending an SMS from a +44 to a +1 number gets pretty expensive ๐Ÿ˜

If it works as well as you claim, this could really take off. Nice one!

@sprusr Thanks! It's built on Ruby on Rails, uses Twilio for text messaging, Wit.ai for natural language processing, and a handful of other algorithms like Jaro-Winkler distance and overlap coefficient to determine string similarity to find the best key-value match.

Plans are certainly to expand into other messaging platforms, just wanted to get the universal one out of the way :)

@jsngr great! ๐ŸŒŸ

Second @sprusr would be great to see this on one of the messenger platforms, I vote Telegram
@jsngr @sprusr Does this mean that the quality of service you can provide is limited by the natural language processing capabilities of Wit.ai?

@jsngr @sprusr Quick tip: In addition to asking for the phone number on the website also just put the bot's number on your site and have people text "hello" to get started. Often, that's a more "natural" interaction for people rather than entering their phone number. Worth testing.
