Afinidata uses artificial intelligence to create a chatbot to deliver smart health care and nutrition assistance to parents for children under 6 years old. Afinidata connects users (parents or primary caretakers) to a virtual ‘assistant’ similar to Siri on Facebook Messenger to help facilitate early childhood education activities. The virtual assistant will start a conversation, and after getting to know more about their children, the virtual assistant will suggest a new educational activity to play, sing, talk, and/or engage with their children in their own household. Additionally, the chat-center feature allows conversations to be transferred to human interaction for user questions requiring more expert knowledge.
Afinidata incorporates a proven model of parent intervention combined with the power of technology to enable a cost-effective method to scale a solution to enhanced early childhood development. They reach out to parents in their Facebook inbox and provide them with relevant content for their children, which improves engagement with parents. Furthermore, Afinidata is different from other technology-based solutions in that our technology integrates and runs directly within the highest growth and penetration app, Facebook Messenger, which has 1.2 billion active users.
