About the project

The student team of Laurea UAS started the project in September by interviewing foreigners living in Finland. The purpose was to find out which things in their everyday life are challenging. The collaboration with Mount St. Joseph University’s Center for IT Engagement (cITe) began when the results were analyzed. cITe has created an easy-to-use chatbot platform which they developed even more during the project. In general, the project provided valuable international experience in cross-cultural cooperation.
