In our globalized world, Indigenous Languages are dying as we speak. It is our duty to preserve the languages. Inspired by the issue, we decide to create a website to raise awareness of the matter in a fun and interactive way.
What it does
- Have awareness that indigenous languages are being endangered and facing extinction.
- Explore the indigenous languages in countries (through a world map).
- Learn or search up with SUSI.AI for some phrases of Ainu by linking them to their English meaning.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We did not have enough programming experience, and had never participated in a hackathon before. We were not sure on how to implement SUSI AI into our web app. Moreover, we did not have knowledge on how to integrate SUSI skills.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to integrate the SUSI AI into our website, and make a SUSI skill to use it. Moreover, we managed to make a website at all despite our lack of experience. Finding and compiling the phrases of Ainu with their suitable English translation, and using it in our website, really pushed our limits
What we learned
We have got some experience in a hackathon, and learnt how to collaborate and delegate roles. Moreover, through this event and attending some workshops, we managed to gain some technical skills, such as learning how to use SUSI AI, which proves useful as he dive deeper into the industry.
What's next for AndWhyJayCee
We will add more languages to our translation tool and finish up countries on the map. We could also improve our write-up and design of the website.
