Sophie Bot


For businesses in sexual health, Sophie Bot provides instant customer support as opposed to overwhelmed human customer support by automating responses using artificial intelligence. Talking about sexual health is not only awkward, but also taboo. Without the right information on sexual health, people make ill-informed decisions which are a contributing factor to the high prevalence of STIs, early pregnancies, and unsafe abortions in Kenya. Sophie Bot is an artificial intelligence persona that answers questions about sexual health. Analogous to a virtual assistant for sexual health, she provides private, curated, and verified information from UNFPA Kenya and the National AIDS Control Council.
