Pixal is a Slack Application that connects cognitive computing with a knowledge-base that is comprised of the information within a Slack workspace. This enables for someone within a workspace, especially a more active one, to be much more capable of extracting important information as efficiently as possible. Since the application is fed the conversation data from the public channels of your workspace, it will be able to answer any question that you may ask that was publicly discussed within your workspace.
Here is a demonstration of Pixal in a Slack channel:

These answers were based on the following conversation:
Bob: Hey everyone, have you heard about the new smart home assistant? It can control all your devices with just a voice command. Joe: Yeah, I got one last week. Setting it up was a breeze, and now I can adjust my lights and thermostat without lifting a finger. Ralph: That sounds cool, but I'm a bit concerned about privacy. Is this assistant always listening? I don't want my conversations recorded. Steve: I get your point, but the company claims that it only starts recording after you say the wake word. Plus, you can manually delete your recordings from the app. Zack: Speaking of apps, did you guys know that this smart assistant integrates with other third-party apps too? I can order food, call a ride, and even check my email through it. Ryan: Impressive, but I'm more interested in the sound quality. Can it play music? I'm a bit of an audiophile, so I'm hoping it's up to the mark. Matthew: Absolutely, it supports various music streaming services. I tried it out, and the audio quality is surprisingly good. Not studio-level, but definitely enjoyable. Mohamed: Hold on, how much does this thing cost? I've been thinking of getting a smart home setup, but budget is a concern for me. Ibrahim: Well, the price varies depending on the model and features. There's a basic version that's more affordable, and then the premium one with advanced capabilities. So, you've got options. Siddharth: I've seen some reviews mentioning occasional connectivity issues. Has anyone experienced that? I'm worried about investing in something that might not work reliably. Bob: I haven't had any major problems so far, just a few minor hiccups that were resolved with updates. It's still a relatively new product, so some growing pains are expected. Ralph: Good to know it's not all smooth sailing. I guess I'll wait a bit longer before jumping in. Overall, though, it sounds like a pretty cool addition to the tech ecosystem. Steve: Definitely worth considering, especially if you're into smart home gadgets. Just do your research and weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. Zack: And keep an eye out for any holiday deals or bundles. Sometimes you can snag these products at a discount, which makes the investment more reasonable. Ryan: Thanks for the advice, everyone. I'll keep these points in mind while making my decision. It's great to have a community to discuss these things with. Matthew: No problem! We're all here to help each other out. Just remember that what works for one person might not work for another, so take your time to figure out what suits your needs best. Mohamed: What if we design our own product and launch it, but at a cheaper price? Bob: Nice idea, Mohamed. Let's do it. Let's make a slack channel to discuss this further
This is the logic that was implemented for Pixal's response system.
