The future with Chatbots

What can development organisations do with the technique of Chatbots?

Share this event

In 2018, The Spindle and HumanityX (Centre for Innovation of Leiden University) collaborate in organising a series of monthly inspirational working sessions for our mutual communities! In these sessions, we’ll explore the relevance of (technological) trends for the future of development cooperation. The sessions are high in energy and always involve an expert. See what’s going on and get more grip on the implications and ideas that would work!

How can chatbots allow us to communicate more directly with (local) communities?  During this session, you will explore possible relevant applications of chatbot technology for sustainable development and your organisation together with Anne-Haaksman de Koster (Free Press Unlimited) and Thomas Baar (HumanityX).

We will showcase the testing of chatbot application with local communities in  Sudan together with Free Press Unlimited, as well as in Kakuma (Kenya) together with the World Food Programme and HumanityX.

What can you expect from it?

  • Increasing understanding of new (technology) trends
  • Identifying potential applications and use cases with real-life examples
  • Knowing how to start leveraging these opportunities for your organisation
  • Knowing trajectories to bring ideas further, the networks and methods to do so [see HumanityX and The Spindle Summer Labs]
