[AI] Disability related chat bot

Hi
I did try it on Google assistant.
The registration process was rather simple. However, I was unhappy that it needed to have access to my contact card. I would have ordinarily declined but to try this app, I consented. I think the developer should remove this requirement.

The interaction with chatbot was smooth. However, when I told it to send the information by email, it simply got overwhelmed and loged out.

I suppose, the developers should have taken a little more time before going live. I certainly back the efforts and it can become very handy tool. There are lot more cenerios where it can be effectively used. It is a step in the right direction and the tool can grow better only if we use it extensively.

However, I do insist the requirement of taking access to our contact should be dropped.

Regards
Harish

Hi Ankit & Pratik,
Kudos! A single-stop access to information platform is much required.
Is it possible to access this information via a mechanism that does not invoke the google assistant? Maybe a hangouts chatbot or a web portal?
Please let me know.
