FactCheck Initiative, a registered non-governmental development organisation has announced plans to launch a Mobile Application and WhatsApp Chatbot – Kaci Help; using automated machine learning technology to help with real-time updates, confirm doubts, report problems, fight climate change, and request specific services such as emergency assistance, ambulance service, and more.
The Country Director of FactCheck Initiative, Adeoye Temitope, in a statement on Monday in Abuja, said that “emergencies are never anticipated, having to be in a tight spot especially a life and death situation can leave one overwhelmed and confused as to the next step to take to get the desired help.”
“With one click of the button we are enabling an option for anyone to request for help and a go-to in emergency cases for easy tracking, alerting dependants and help services. Travelers can check-in with their travel details, Kaci will then keep tabs to ensure the user gets to their destination safely.” Said Temitope.
“Climate change is having an impact on the social and environmental determinants of health, such as clean air, safe drinking water, enough food, and safe shelter. Kaci Help will be providing individuals and businesses with a simple and effective way to make a significant contribution to the fight against climate change.” Temitope Stated.
“It will guide our users through the process of changing their habits by providing a list of quick steps they can take right away to reduce their CO2 emissions, and then calculate the amount of CO2 produced by each action to ultimately help fight climate change.” Also stated by Temitope.
The society is rife with many false, misleading and inaccurate news, stories and articles usually because people who propagate this information are more interested in creating a buzz than in passing across the true story. Very low access to government activities, information, participation in decision making and access to justice.
Asides the several other benefits added like iReports, Filing Petitions or Complaints; Kaci Help is built out of the desire to provide all categories of authentic and accurate information; this is the foundation upon which it stands upon. Kaci will help to bridge the gap between the government and its citizens; allowing our users to easily resolve issues by linking or granting them access to the right agencies.
In Partnership with FactCheck Initiative, IDC Platforms designed the Kaci Help Mobile App and WhatsApp Chatbot. IDC is a Nigerian multipurpose corporation headquartered in Abuja, Nigeria. IDC began officially operating in 2010, and in a short period of time, it has created platforms with various products and delivered various types of solutions.
