Data Scientist Creates Python Script To Track Available Slots For Covid Vaccinations

Bhavesh Bhatt, Data Scientist from Fractal Analytics posted that he has created a Python script that checks the available slots for Covid-19 vaccination centres from CoWIN API in India. He has also shared the GitHub link to the script.

The YouTube content creator posted, “Tracking available slots for Covid-19 Vaccination Centers in India on the CoWIN website can be a bit strenuous.” “I have created a Python script which checks the available slots for Covid-19 vaccination centres from CoWIN API in India. I also plan to add features in this script of booking a slot using the API directly,” he added.

We asked Bhatt how did the idea come to fruition, he said, “Registration for Covid vaccines for those above 18 started on 28th of April. When I was going through the CoWIN website – https://www.cowin.gov.in/home, I found it hard to navigate and find empty slots across different pin codes near my residence. On the site itself, I discovered public APIs shared by the government [https://apisetu.gov.in/public/marketplace/api/cowin] so I decided to play around with it and that’s how I came up with the script.”

Talking about the Python script, Bhatt mentioned that he used just 2 simple python libraries to create the Python script, which is datetime and requests. The first part of the code helps the end-user to discover a unique district_id. “Once he has the district_id, he has to input the data range for which he wants to check availability which is where the 2nd part of the script comes in handy,” Bhatt added.

How Is TCS Helping With COVID-19 Testing In India

COVID-19 cases have only been on the rise. With the non-availability of effective drugs and vaccines, one of the effective ways to control it is to detect it early in patients. However, the task is easier said than done. While a large number of test kits are being produced, they are not enough to conduct testing in large numbers.

Government-run body, C-CAMP or Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platform, has been a key enabler in driving COVID-19 testing as it has been aggressively building, managing and scaling the ecosystem of MSMEs to produce test kits indigenously. However, they might not be enough.

Inside ABCD, A Dataset To Build In-Depth Task-Oriented Dialogue Systems

According to a recent study, call centre agents’ spend approximately 82 percent of their total time looking at step-by-step guides, customer data, and knowledge base articles.

Traditionally, dialogue state tracking (DST) has served as a way to determine what a caller wants at a given point in a conversation. Unfortunately, these aspects are not accounted for in popular DST benchmarks. DST is the core part of a spoken dialogue system. It estimates the beliefs of possible user’s goals at every dialogue turn.

To reduce the burden on call centre agents and improve the SOTA of task-oriented dialogue systems, AI-powered customer service company ASAPP recently launched an action-based conversations dataset (ABCD). The dataset is designed to help develop task-oriented dialogue systems for customer service applications. ABCD consists of a fully labelled dataset with over 10,000 human dialogues containing 55 distinct user intents requiring sequences of actions constrained by company policies to accomplish tasks.

The dataset is currently available on GitHub.
