So during a TechCrunch Disrupt SF Hackathon, a group of hackers grown PickMe, a Facebook-integrated chatbot that helps we confirm that internal grill to go to. Just summary a bot with what you’re looking for, such as French restaurant, and it will content we behind with a internal suggestion.

PickMe uses synthetic comprehension to learn your preferences and make a idea that you’re hopefully confident with.

The contingent pronounced that they were desirous since they had difficulty determining where to eat before streamer to a Disrupt event. Team members David Tedgui and Antoine Bungert were in city from Paris to open a 42 campus in Silicon Valley and Devin Platt is a internal Amazon employee.

PickMe “gives we one choice and it’s a best choice,” pronounced Bungert. “It learns from your form and your tastes and experiences.”

It’s “very easy to get started,” Platt added.  “You don’t need to implement anything.”

The group skeleton to make PickMe work for some-more than only restaurants. They cited cars and dentists as examples.

They also design PickMe to confederate with APIs from Yelp, Foursquare, Google Maps, OpenTable and IBM Watson.
