Challenge Project


Open source conversational platform for Climathon projects


  • What challenge(s) apply to your project?

The running of the Climathon itself. I am one of the organisers, and this is not an official project submission - but still something that was mostly developed at the Climathon.

  • Describe the problem and why we should care in 3-5 sentences.

We need to track the progress of many teams, and bots can do it better than humans. So, we made one.

  • Describe your solution in 3-5 sentences.

This is a bot that connects to participants through Slack and bugs people to improve their conversation through good habits (like taking a walk and drinking water), and provides various tools, like a project and open data search, and a way to easily create documentation about all the teams.

  • Add any screenshots / demo links / photos of the results we should look at.

See the #startnewteam channel, or talk to the @sodabot bot yourself on the Climathon Zurich Slack.

  • Enter any links or datasets that were key to your progress.

Hubot was a basis for this project, data is from Biggest help of all were all the people that tried the bot and gave their feedback at the Climathon!

  • Where did this project stand prior to the Climathon?

A new script was started at the Climathon within an existing framework for bots called Hubot.

  • Why do you think your project is relevant for the City of Zurich?

Zurich should (also) be the center for A.I. innovation!

  • Any other comments about your experience.

Loved every minute. Thanks everyone!
