In the midst of heated debates about the effects of Artificial intelligence on future societies, Haptik recently got recognized for its use of AI to serve a strong social cause. The bot was recently awarded “AI for Good Award” at the 4th Annual Canadian Fintech and AI Awards 2018 for its Akancha Against Harassment or AAH bot, which was commissioned for Akancha Srivastava, a noted cyber safety expert and founder of the Akancha Against Harassment (AAH) initiative.

The bot educates and empowers people about cyber safety in an engaging and conversational manner. Furthermore, it also provides detailed information on the right processes, legal rights etc. to users seeking help and protection against cyber harassment.

The 4th Annual Canadian Fintech and AI Awards, presented by The Digital Finance Institute, is an annual event organized since 2015 that brings together the best enterprises, professionals and stakeholders from Canada's robust FinTech& AI ecosystem. With over 4,000 of Canada’s top entrepreneurs and leaders from the Toronto FinTech community in participation, the event is considered Canada's largest National FinTech and AI event.

The applicants were judged by domain experts representing pioneers of the tech-world, including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, nVidia as well as and industry leaders from powerhouses of the business ecosphere such as LinkedIn, HSBC,Visa etc. Haptik’s recognition in the prestigious platform has brought laurels not only to the enterprise, but has also put international spotlight on India’s growing AI-based business community.

AAH is a trusted, continuously evolving go-to resource for information on cyber safety that contains up-to-date information on various cases, rulings, FAQs, important reading material, expert opinion blogs etc. It serves as a comprehensive consultation and guiding space for people who wish to know their basic rights pertaining to cyber safety.

Commenting on the recognition, AakritVaish, Co-Founder and CEO, Haptik, said, “It is indeed a moment of great pride to be recognized at the annual Canada Fintech & AI Awards, which is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious platforms and a much anticipated event for keen followers of the global AI ecosystem. The AAH bot is a product cherished greatly by the Haptik team, as it sets the right example of how the immense capabilities of AI can be utilized for the evolution of society and the world we live in. The award validates our belief in the technology and the way we envision its use, and is the perfect return on our efforts giving us great encouragement in the process. We would like to thank The CAFintech for this recognition and hope it continues to be a strong catalyst in bringing the best of global AI ecosystem to the fore.”

The AAH bot has significantly helped many individuals to mitigate the risk of cyber harassment in India, while making a far greater number of people aware about what they can do lest they become a victim of the same. In a time when opinions are still divided on whether humanity is better off or worse with the presence of AI, Haptik, with its AI for Good Awards, presents a solid case in support!
