Chatbot helps asylum seekers prepare for their interviews Springwise


MarHub is a new chatbot developed by students at the University of California-Berkeley's Haas School of Business to help asylum seekers through the complicated process of applying to become an official refugee – which can take up to 18 months – and to avoid using smugglers. Finding the right information for the asylum process isn't easy, and although most asylum seekers are in possession of a smartphone, a lot of the information is either missing or out of date. The development team quickly realized that there was a gap in the market which they felt they could fill. What other original ways could we implement to help refugees and the process of asylum?
