About three months ago, Nym the DoD acronym chatbot, was brought into the world and I’ve been receiving a lot of great feedback.
For those of you who don’t know what CVR is, it’s a temporary commercial instance of Microsoft Teams, that has been stood up for DoD in response to COVID-19.
If you have a CVR account today, give Nym a try — ask it about a DoD specific acronym. Currently, the database contains around 5,000 terms.
This is a great example of how crowdsourcing can empower people to improve operational readiness, even in simple ways such as acronyms and doctrine.
I’m really proud to see this bot I made a few months ago being used and I hope to see it live on with more improvements (more on that soon).
