    Hi guys, nice to see you are making progress. The service itself looks good and the plan is understandable. I’m just thinking how difficult it is to gain market share (though I know nothing about your market segment), but yea indeed if you make it, there are great opportunities to scale and bring a lot of activity on the SNET platform as well.       Here are some questions that came to my mind: Are you planning some kind of reputation system for participants and if yes how would it work? How would your predictive maintenance system work? Are there factors such as brand, age, driven kilometers, maybe integrations into cars’ monitoring systems and maintenance history etc ? Could it include user observations and feedback?      As you list the “Recommendation Systems” in the ‘AI services (New or Existing)’ -section, I assumed you are going to create the recommendation algorithm by yourself and then launch it on the SNET marketplace. However in your response to Aokishi’s comment you say that you are not going to develop any new AI services. So what exactly is your plan regarding the recommendation system ? If such a system is not yet available on the SNET platform and you will not build one by yourself, how are you going to get it?     The final question: What is the expected timeline for the project?

      Wow that's quite a lot of questions @HenriqC lol, but will do well to answer them accordingly.  First on market share gain, our approach to this is guerrilla strategy ( bold creative thinking, more advanced technology, leveraging novel tactics, disruption and surprise and focusing on low-cost strategies to captivate the audience) and again the car rental ecosystem in Africa still lacks the technology to streamline process and enhance user experience which is what Drivepadi will be leveraging on and we're also building enterprise solutions for car rental companies to leverage our technology and we have some on our waitlist already.  On reputation system, all our users both renters and car owners will have a verification badge on their profile,users who have completed certain security checks using face recognition on SNET will then receive this badge to indicate their trustworthiness and is mandatory for all users, and also renters and car owners will be able to rate each other and leave feedback on on-time returns, vehicle condition, and user communication will contribute to a user's reputation score. On predictive maintenance systems, yes this will work well by analyzing multiple factors, like Brand, age, driven kilometers, and integration with car monitoring systems. maintenance History: Detailed records of past maintenance and repairs. user feedback: Incorporating user observations and feedback regarding vehicle performance. AI analysis: Using AI to predict when maintenance is likely needed based on patterns and anomalies in the data. On Recommendation Systems, we will integrate existing AI services from the SingularityNET (SNET) platform that suits our platform needs and any unavailable tool will be recommended for custom development and deployment to the SingularityNET marketplace by our team (in the next round) or to the community.  Lastly on the project timeline, we have a 6month clear roadmap to develop, execute and implement this project as captured in the milestones.  Thanks

    I am really confused after reading your proposal. I am well aware of your Ideation proposal from the last round (3) when you ideated and planned your path. However, after reading this current one, I do not understand what it is you are proposing to build. Is the user you keep referring to a renter or the car rental company? Is this a Dapp that will be used to rent cars or to rent cars out? Please clarify for me since I really do not comprehend what you are seeking $100,000 for. Thank You.

      Hello, Many thanks for the questions and concerns. Firstly, let me clarify what we are building is a car rental platform more like Airbnb for car rental or platform similar to Turo. Secondly, Drivepadi is a B2B,B2C startup so the user mentioned in the proposal refers to both renters (individuals looking to rent cars) and hosts (car owners or car rental companies) using our platform. The proposal outlines the integration and implementation of Snet AI services within DrivePadi's platform. These services will analyze user data, enhanced security, user verification, including renter preferences and market trends, to provide personalized car rental experience. DrivePadi is a platform that facilitates both renting cars (for individuals) and renting cars out (for car owners or rental companies).   Lastly, the $100,000 funding is to develop, integrate, and optimize these AI-driven features of SingularityNET AI marketplace within DrivePadi's platform, ultimately improving user satisfaction, engagement, and business outcomes as detailed in our milestones. Hope these addresses your concerns, if not please feel free to indicate areas you still need more clarifications. Thanks.

    Potential but not realistic

    Actually, this is not a new idea for the current technology scene everywhere. Your project proposal shows a careful preparation of the plan, the development team knows what they need to do in this plan, and you have also outlined a very realistic roadmap. But for me, I've met a lot of software that have big ideas like yours. Many other car rental companies exist out there, and the idea of using a software to rent cars has been around for a long time and has even become quite popular today. Is it a bit late to enter this market now? And how can you compete with the other giants that exist today? At the same time, investing in technology transportation projects is often very expensive and the budget can become overloaded. With the intention of using 100,000, is it enough for your project to works well and without interruption? I think the proposed team should research and learn carefully about the current market for this transport technology industry, which is already very complex and requires very high requirements.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your time and reviewing our proposal, all you concerns are well received and appreciated.

    You're very correct the transportation industry is a huge ecosystem that requires huge capital and of course there are already players doing that. But let me say this, the transportation sector has many categories like carpooling, ride-sharing, car rental, p2p ride-sharing, logistics, haulage etc so each player pick their niche to operate in. 

    In Africa for instance only the ride-sharing ecosystem are fully using advanced technology unlike ours (car rentals) which is still fully operated in local and traditional way, that's where Drivepadi advanced technology and SNET AI tools integration platform comes in to be the software and technology leader in the car rental ecosystem. We currently have some car rental companies on our waiting list, so our technology will be even more beneficial to them as we will onboard them and their fleets on our platform as we launch.

    Right direction - service breakthrough

    Welcome the cooperation of DrivePadi and SNET. Identifying the customer as the center has the most important meaning in the service orientation that the author wants to aim for.

    Implementation AI SNET should be analyzed clearly

    The 7 milestones are presented at length, showing the seriousness of the author.
    Success was partly proven when the proposal received funding from DFR3. This is also quite convincing evidence to the community.
    Overall, I think the idea is good, but the implementation is a bit vague as the team only gives theoretical arguments. Hopefully the team will clarify more about applying AI SNET to their products.

    Good value proposition but faces challenges

    The DrivePadi project has a good value proposition but faces challenges in competing with established players, acquiring data, and ensuring regulatory compliance.

    Feasibility:

    • AI Integration: Integrating AI for personalized recommendations, pricing, and maintenance requires expertise and data.
    • Data Acquisition: Obtaining sufficient data to train AI models effectively might be challenging initially.

    Viability:

    • Competition: The car rental market is competitive, with established players and peer-to-peer rental services.
    • Regulation: Navigating regulations around car rentals and data privacy in Nigeria and Egypt is crucial.
    • Blockchain Integration (Optional): While optional, integrating blockchain for secure transactions adds complexity.

    Desirability:

    • Convenience: The focus on a seamless and user-friendly rental experience is desirable.
    • Value Proposition: Personalized recommendations, dynamic pricing, and predictive maintenance offer value to both renters and car owners.

    Usefulness:

    • Improved User Experience: The platform can simplify car rentals and improve customer satisfaction.
    • Increased Efficiency: AI-powered solutions can optimize pricing and maintenance for car owners.

    Besides, the project should consider:

    • Start Small: Begin by launching the platform in a limited area to test the concept, gather user feedback, and refine the AI models.
    • Focus on Core Features: Prioritize core functionalities like car search, booking, and secure payment processing in the initial launch.
    • Strategic Partnerships: Partner with existing car rental companies or car manufacturers to leverage their network and expertise.
    • Data Sharing Agreements: Explore data-sharing agreements with other car rental companies to enrich AI models.
    • Phased Blockchain Integration: Consider integrating blockchain technology in a later phase after establishing a user base.

    By addressing these points and focusing on a data-driven, user-centric approach, DrivePadi can become a competitive player in the car rental market, transforming the rental experience for both car owners and renters.

    A project has not clarified key information

    To be honest, I have a negative impression of this project. First are the inconsistencies in DrivePadi's claim to ensure secure and transparent transactions through blockchain technology. I don't see any mention of public blockchains and since DrivePadi is a company I assume they use a private blockchain. I think the claim of enhancing trust and reducing security risks for both car owners and renters is just an empty promise. How is the element of enhancing trust and ensuring security implemented? I don't believe in vague statements like "Because I use blockchain, it's secure". AI algorithms are used to personalize the experience so I don't have any complaints but I would like the team to ask themselves whether user data is secure. What guarantees do project and internal teams not use user data? Additionally, the two technical members of the project do not appear to have any experience with blockchain or AI. Fawaz Adeoye is a software developer with less than 1 year of experience and Famous Ubiokor only has experience in website design and development.

    Hi Aokishi

    Thanks for your review and feedback. So i will begin by saying that the blockchain aspect is more of an optional infrastructure rather than the core technology for DrivePadi hence the reason it was not captured in our milestone deliverables.. In that case, integrating SingularityNET (SNET) AI tools for fraud detection, security, and personalized recommendations makes sense, along with using Paystack for secure payment transactions. Here's how that works:

    Payment Option and AI Integration for DrivePadi

    To ensure robust fraud detection, security, and personalized experiences, DrivePadi leverages SingularityNET's AI tools. These tools empower us to:

    1. Fraud Detection: Utilize AI algorithms to analyze user behavior, identify suspicious activities, and prevent fraudulent transactions, safeguarding both car owners and renters.

    2. Security Enhancements: Implement AI-driven security measures to protect user data, prevent cyber threats, and ensure a secure platform environment for all users.

    3. Personalized Recommendations: Leverage AI-powered recommendation engines to offer personalized car rental options, tailored suggestions based on user preferences, past bookings, and market trends, enhancing the user experience.

    In addition to AI capabilities, DrivePadi partners with Paystack for secure payment transactions. Paystack provides a trusted and reliable payment gateway, ensuring seamless and secure payment processing for users across Nigeria and Egypt.

    By combining AI tools from SingularityNET for advanced functionalities and Paystack for secure payments, DrivePadi prioritizes user trust, data security, and personalized services, offering a comprehensive and user-centric platform experience.

    Lastly on our technical team AI and blockchain experience, we are not developing any AI tools for now hence we will be integrating SingularityNET tools for all our AI services as quoted in our milestone 4 deliverables.
