We were trying to think of something to do with the Microsoft Cognitive Services API, and it occurred to us that we didn't know whether or not we were the Senate.
What it does
It's a website where you can upload images, by file or by URL, which will then be sent to the Microsoft Cognitive Services API. With state-of-the-art computer vision techniques, we will find out whether you are the Senate or not.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
We had to retrain the model a few times so that it learned that not all old people were Senator Palpatine. Also, styling web pages is harder than it appears.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
This is officially the dankest project we have ever submitted.
What I learned
style="box-sizing: border-box" fixes everything if you're laying out a form.
What's next for Am I the Senate?
We may attempt to identify not just whether or not you are the Senate, but also whether or not you have been granted emergency powers.
