With my team, we came together to create a Chatbot that can interact with the user, understand an inquiry (about a common language word) and send back a link to the Handspeak website.

From now on, I will change the format of this segment by a little bit. Continue reading “[Blog Reads] June 2017”

[5D4N] Relax, Explore and EAT in Taipei, Taiwan

Before coming back to Canada, I decided to end the semester by doing a solo trip to Taiwan after the finals. My Singapore to Taipei flight was about 5 hours and I was able to book it such that it coincides with sleeping hours. This allowed me to arrive really early the next morning to go check-in and immediately start visiting this beautiful city. Continue reading “[5D4N] Relax, Explore and EAT in Taipei, Taiwan”
