At this point the estimate would go to millions and beyond:)
What we suggest here is starting the work with the Discovery stage.
Why go for the Discovery stage?
Unlike the preliminary, or the rough estimation, the Discovery assumes the solid scope of works — starting from workshops (up to 3 meetings) to the detailed technical design and estimation breakdown in time frames and budget.

Our team has recently started working on a new project. The task is to build a phone bot and an email bot which involves natural language processing (or NLP). The Client is a big company with a large flow of the incoming calls and mails. As to the email bot, it should detect and sort emails on subjects and generate the responses. For the phone bot we use artificial intelligence for the recognition of the speech and generation of the voice from text.
To achieve this, we apply third-party services (such as Google) and train our algorithms according to the needs of the Client.

Besides that, there is a background, how they ended up in it. And the situation development is in the hands of the participants themselves.
Our guys turned out to be heroes of the game “Lost”. That is, they had to procure food, wood and iron, build shelters and make weapons, investigate the mysterious disappearance of scientists.
