Our Latest Vision

This project will be incredibly transformational for Sikhs across the world. We will be providing users with the tools to ask questions that they have and to get answers inspired completely by Gurbani. We all often have questions in our mind we want answered - where it’s something that is happening in our lives or maybe we just need some advice on a life event. Sometimes we feel we have nowhere to ask these questions anonymously. With the Hazoor app, your deepest questions can be asked privately to get answers instantly with Gurbani to help guide you.

How Does It Work? 

Let’s say you have a question such as “What happens to my soul after I die?” but are not sure where to even begin looking for the answer or how to go about asking it. Even if you don’t speak Punjabi or Gurmukhi, our Gurbani Chat Bot would make it possible for you to ask your questions and based on Natural Language Processing (NLP), our application will automatically recommend certain shabads to you, and highlight the context that applies to your specific question.

But there is more to this. We are building the next generation of Sikh-orientated apps and tools based on cutting edge technology that includes artificial intelligence and machine learning. We will be able to learn a lot from user behavior and patterns, and also improve the experience of other products whilst keeping the privacy and anonymity of the individual.

 

Our Inspiration

Bots are everywhere. You are probably already using many of them even at your home. Think about Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri, perhaps your thermostat or even your fridge. You might have interacted with one at some point recently where you were speaking to a bot that responded and sounded like a real human. However, the responses you were being provided were by a bot, based on conversational AI that includes machine learning and NLP capabilities.

Our inspiration to build the Hazoor app comes from the emergence of chat bots over the past several years. We have the most user data for Sikhs and the largest, most accurate digital Gurbani database ever created that continues to evolve daily.

SikhiToTheMax is one of the most popular Gurbani websites as well as being the most popular Sikh desktop application. One of the capabilities missing today is precisely what we are trying to build with the Gurbani Chat Bot. Data suggests that users are looking for direct answers to their questions. Current Sikhi apps and websites are not setup to answer these types of searches, unless they are an FAQ-type database - but even these don't have the capability to answer such questions directly.

This app will also allow us to connect non-Sikhs and non-Punjabis with Gurbani who may have felt they had not have access before.

How Can You Help?

Donors can be a huge help towards this project as funding this project can help make this a reality and a success. By donating, you'll be able to help many people get questions on their mind answered in a safe space. This will be crucial for people who are researching, confused, need directions or a little help.

 

How Will Funds Be Used? 

We will be using funds to employ a dedicated engineer, designer and a data analyst to work on this product over a six-month period. This will be an ongoing development effort and improvements will be released overtime. Funding from this project will also be used towards building the infrastructure required to host the data and models to serve responses based on "Natural Language Processing" (machine learning).

Khalis Foundation employees a teams of paid staff located in places like the United States, India (Punjab, Delhi) Australia and Canada, and we have volunteers located globally.

Entire cost of the project will be excess of $50,000 USD but will be offset by volunteer contributions towards the technology and research.

We are hoping that this will make it easier to seamlessly inquire about any doubts or seek guidance without the need to search through multiple options. Your user experience is of utmost importance to us, and we hope this change makes accessing Hazoor a more user-friendly and intuitive process.

    We have also recognized that many individuals might not be aware of the existence of Hazoor or its potential to address their queries. This method may help raise awareness and make it more accessible to everyone in the Sikh community. By simplifying the process, we hope to reach out to a broader audience and provide valuable assistance to those who may have doubts or questions related to Sikhi.

    The impact of Hazoor has been truly remarkable, thanks to the continued support of our donors and the engagement of the Sikh community. This feature has been instrumental in addressing people's doubts, fostering a sense of belonging, and sharing knowledge within the community. We are committed to refining and expanding Hazoor to realize its full potential.

    Khalis Progress Update

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh Sangat Jee,

     

    The Khalis Team hopes that your new year has gone off to a great start. We wished to provide an update on the Hazoor App. We have extended a proof of concept that was built during our hackathon and tried using tensor flow within it. Various AI and non-AI technology has been researched to find out what would be the best route for this app. We are getting close to finalizing our architecture, tech stack and project plan for the Hazoor app. Following this we are hoping to start development on this architecture and walk towards reaching our milestones.

     

    We are getting closer to our target goal of $50,000 - reaching this will allow us to work on this vision at a greater capacity and allow us to fully develop this concept. Thank you to all the sangat that has donated. We would love if you could share this with your family and friends and help us reach our target.

     

    With Gratitude, 

    Khalis Team.

We really appreciate your donations, every dollar makes a difference in getting closer to creating this programme. Hazoor will provide an answer for many people, for those with doubts, queries, questions and seeking further knowledge.
