Grant Proposal: Tali.AI

Grant ID: 865c0az2r


The core of technical Web3 projects depends on a healthy ecosystem of developers using the protocols. Developers learn how to use the various projects through inspecting developer docs and Github repositories. As expected, the documentation doesn’t cover everything and a team of people are needed to provide “front line” support to those building / using the protocol.

Enter Developer Relations, a team tasked with being the first human interface with protocols who (according to Chainlink) provide 2 critical roles the project: building developer communities & tracking product market fit.

The issue that often arises is a lack of human capital to be able to deal with the number of requests & questions that populate a DevRel teams day.

We propose to provide a solution that will enable the DevRel team to be able to focus on what they do best: solving unique customer problems and building trust in the protocol. By providing a bot that can answer previously asked questions it will enable DevRel to become more effective and in turn provide higher-quality support to end users.

We currently have a working MVP and are acquiring initial customers.

What type of grant are you pursuing?:

Please select the category your project best fits into:

Please select who you think will benefit from your project?:
Subgraph Developers

How much funding are you looking for? (USD):

Provide a breakdown of your requested funding:
We propose to build a private Discord or Slack bot for the Graph developer community that will use the latest technology around LLM’s (Large Language Models) to import the Graph’s Github repos, documentation, Slack and Discord Q&A’s to provide an interface for Graph developers and users to ask questions in natural language.

The idea is to provide another member to the Graph’s DevRel team, reducing support hours on Discord and Slack and a path of triage for commonly asked questions (making the team and users get answers quicker).

The funding would support our time (4 weeks) and host for 3 months.

I have few comments:

What do you mean by hosting for 3-months here?

Do you have also a live demo that you can eventually show us?

Thanks so much for your answers.

Thank you for submitting your proposal. After review of the content, this appears to be a tooling grant application and is therefore not within scope of community grants that the Graph AdvocatesDAO oversees.

You can submit your proposal directly to the Graph Foundation following this link: The Graph: Grants Application. Good luck!
