Johnson & Johnson: Problem Statement - Developing AI-powered Chatbot for Mental Health Support

Prize: 6-month paid SG internship with J&J (for eligible students only)

1st place $450 USD - Microsoft Funded
2nd place $225 USD - Microsoft Funded

Challenge Description:
In recent years, mental health awareness has significantly increased, highlighting the need for accessible and effective support systems. As part of our commitment to mental wellness, we are organizing a hackathon focused on developing AI-powered chatbots to provide mental health support.

Problem Statement:
Design and build an AI-powered chatbot leveraging GPT technology to offer mental health support and resources to users. The chatbot should be capable of:
1. Providing empathetic and supportive responses to users expressing various emotions and mental health concerns.
2. Offering resources such as helpline numbers, self-help articles, and coping strategies based on user input.
3. Conducting conversational assessments to gauge the user’s mental state and keep a record of the mental state over time.

1. Functional AI-powered chatbot prototype capable of engaging in meaningful conversations related to mental health.
2. User interface for interacting with the chatbot, including input fields for text-based communication.
3. Documentation outlining the chatbot’s functionality, technical implementation, and integration possibilities with external systems.
4. Presentation or demo showcasing the chatbot’s capabilities, user experience, and potential impact on mental health support.

Evaluation Criteria:
Submissions will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
1. Effectiveness in providing empathetic and supportive responses to users’ mental health concerns.
2. Authenticity and accuracy of mental health resources and recommendations offered by the chatbot.
3. User experience and interface design for ease of interaction and engagement.
4. Security measures implemented to protect user data and ensure confidentiality.

1. Use following FAQ dataset to answer generic questions related to mental health:
2. Use RAG on authentic sources to increase authenticity of the response. For example:
b. Mind
c. NHS Mental Health
3. Leverage existing scrapping pipelines:
4. You might find following technologies useful: VectorDB, RAG, Agentic-Flow, GPT, GRadio

Tech Stack: Azure OpenAI, Azure AI Search

Circle: Problem statement 2 - Build Next-Gen Apps with Novel Use Cases

Prize: 1000 USDC or $900 USD

Problem statement 2: Best Application using AI and blockchain to build an application that is not a part of the 3 above solutions. We are offering a bounty choice of either 1,000 USDC (1 USDC = 1 USD) or $900 USD. We are offering a slightly larger payout if you choose to receive funds in USDC.

🏆 Best Applications for Emerging Use Cases
Build an application (mobile or web app) that focuses on innovative solutions with novel and bespoke use cases.

Examples may include the following;
– Use blockchain in an AI use case around payments for inferences or compute. Extra points for developing AI agents that can bank themselves by receiving USDC for tasks they perform, and spending USDC on services or other AI agents to complete more tasks. –
– A blockchain-based social platform that also leverages AI, empowering secure transactions and sustainable growth through trusted identities and digital content creation.
– A creator-focused platform that utilises AI, USDC and smart contracts for content production, distribution, and monetisation with full creator control and ownership.
– A DeFi application that leverages AI and CCTP for improved interoperability, enabling cross-chain payments and swaps with enhanced security and liquidity.
– Gaming applications

Recommended Developer Tools: USDC, CCTP, Programmable Wallets, Smart Contract Platform, Gas Station, Azure OpenAI, Azure Speech.

Submission Guidelines:
Please make sure to include the following within your submission:

1. Functional MVP – The submission is a fully functional Minimum Viable Product (MVP) covering any of the abovementioned criteria.

– Presentation
– Video demo
– Testable code
– Deployed URL or Mobile application
– Survey submission by following the link here:

Refrain from submitting only pitch decks, marketing demos, and product documents without functional and testable code and demos.

2. Development Process – The submission includes clear and comprehensive documentation of the development process, including gists, sketches, discussions, and any issues encountered. Ensure the commit history demonstrates a steady and iterative development approach, not just one large pull request.

3. Integration Challenges/Feedback: The submission meticulously details any integration challenges with the provided API and documentation and the adept use of GitHub Issues to document problems and their resolutions extensively. We look forward to seeing documented feedback around how the solution and the corresponding resources can be improved and what you’d like to see to enhance your use case’s building.

4. Presentation and Documentation: The submission’s presentation and video detail its features and the integration of the programmable wallets API, while its well-structured documentation, including code comments, simplifies understanding and further development.
