How we built it
We tried to do a reactive meteor website with mongodb but it had problems so we redid the backend and finally settled on nodeJS and deployed it with Heroku. We are still integrating NLU technology but development is under way.
What's next for Ami-app
At wearhacksMTL 2015, team Ami-app is leveraging Nuance's Natural Language Understanding technology to deliver an application prototype poised to enhance patient care in the mental healthcare profession.
Therefore, moving forward, we wish to deliver a platform upon which the scientific community can participate in iterating the application towards an effective treatment enhancing solution. This technology integrates seamlessly with existing text-based medical software developed in Montreal in the psychiatric field.
