I just want to make sure the app may work when there no internet connectivity, not sync too many times and drain the user’s battery as well as waste server bandwidth.

Therefore, I had to implement a hybrid solution by making sure the app is making intelligent syncing of data.

Synk is a simple Kotlin file to abstract an intelligent hybrid syncing logic for your Android apps. It makes sure your Android app does not make repeated calls to the same back-end API for the same data in a particular time period.

Each time a sync is successful with the back-end, we save the timestamp. Next time a sync is triggered, we check if the time passed since the last successful sync is greater than our defined sync-window.

As part of our commitment at @indexlabstz in using AI in solving challenges facing our surrounding community. Today we present to you @daashabot, our new Chatbot in collaboration with Code for Africa.

Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence.

Victims of violence can suffer sexual and reproductive health consequences, including forced and unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, traumatic fistula, sexually transmitted infections including HIV, and even death.

It is estimated worldwide that 1 in 3 women will experience physical or sexual abuse in her lifetime.

The project is still under review by Facebook so that it can be publicly available, here at @indexlabstz we are excited and looking forward to hear your feedback when it will be available.

Yesterday was a good day, Ally and I talked about AI and how we can use it in our surrounding community.

Ally presented the basics of AI and demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt how we can use AI in helping diagnose Briest Cancer.

While I talk about Chatbot and how it is incorporated with AI in helping Customer Service.

I presented a demo of a Nyama Choma Chatbot deployed on Facebook Messenger and Google Actions.

It was quite rewarding how people want to know more about AI and Machine Learning. We are committed in using AI in trying to solve social issues around our community.

Ally and I will be speaking on June 27th, I am admiring the work Ally and the team at Inspired Ideas have done so far.

Ally Salim Jr. is a software engineer and the CEO/Founder of Inspired Ideas. Having studied and worked in both the United States and Tanzania developing solutions through technology, he is passionate about empowering others through teaching and mentoring and appreciates home-grown solutions for the continent.

Ally’s main interest is in using artificial intelligence to solve challenges in health and education. He is also the lead researcher of Mary, a soon to be released AI system that puts Africa first in an attempt to compete with the likes of Google and Siri.

I will talk about why Chatbot, the investment giant tech companies have invested in Chatbot and how get started building a Chatbot.

At the end, you will get to know some of the key terminologies and how conversation is processed by Natural Language Processing powered of AI.

The Open Data Portal hosts a wealth of data, visualisations, and stories from various government sectors for use by members of the general public, civil society, media, academia, politics, and public administration.

At @indexlabstz through @eshangazibot, we intend to find meaning out of these data and apply to solve community challenges face the community.

We believe Machine Learning brings the promise of deriving meaning from all of that data.

I am working behind the scenes improving the core Yesaya Software Backend System. Preparing the API to commnuicate with the Android App and the Chatbot.

Features I am working on include:
- Blog section
- Discussion section

On the app I invested time to build Yesaya Software App to demonstrate the building of a good, modular and scalable Android app using Kotlin, Android Architecture Components (LiveData, ViewModel & Room), Dagger, RxJava and RxAndroid among others.

After setting all these, I will get back to the design I shared earlier, remember all code are free and Open Source.
