What it does
Covid Stat Tracker provides in-depth analytics about the Coronavirus in Canada. It provides accurate statistics for each region and province in the country (Which is something that is not available on Alexa and other voice assistant applications). It also provides accurate information about Covid-19, symptoms, and vaccines.
How we built it
The application is running through the Voiceflow framework. We also made our own API with Python, which is being hosted on a Heroku web server.
Challenges we ran into
When we were creating the API, we could not find a way to host it publicly. This was an issue since Voiceflow is only able to access the API if it is on a public webserver. After a lot of research and experimenting, we were able to get our custom-made API running on a Heroku web server.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we started this project with no experience using Voiceflow or creating our own APIs, but managed to adapt quickly and learn the theory and implementation behind them.
