Corona Virus has become a worldwide pandemic, so we built a text-based machine learning tool to tackle it

What it does

What it does is the following:

  1. You text our phone service with a county and state
  2. You get back information specific to your area. These include # of deaths due to Covid, # of cases currently, and predicted cases in 30 days

How I built it

It works like this under the hood:

  1. Send an SMS notification
  2. This gets intercepted by intelepeeler's API
  3. We send a response back to our nodeJS server with machine learning model data in mongoDB
  4. We send back the information to intelepeeler
  5. User gets an SMS notification

Challenges I ran into

Getting familiar with their API

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud of hooking up everything into an endpoint

What I learned

I learned how work with SMS based workflows on intelepeeler

What's next for Covid Advisor

More fleshed out SMS user experience
