Project Egg is a Yelp bot built on Microsoft’s Bot Framework. The bot, named Egg, helps people find businesses in a particular neighborhood. Where Egg differentiates from using Yelp itself, is that it can remember genres that you’re not interested in (i.e. not a fan, can’t eat certain foods, not feeling a particular type of food…). But where Egg really shines is that when you’re in a conversation with multiple people, Egg knows what everyone in the group isn’t interested in and only gives you recommendations that everyone is collectively open to and in a location that is central to all parties in the group. Egg’s intelligence eliminates out all the back and forth in any group that occurs to find a venue that all parties can agree on.
Egg is accessible through Skype, Facebook’s Messenger, and through the web right below:
