Our Inspiration was based on the recent push for more content exclusivity, and lack of knowledge to use that content.
What it does
Our website takes your document and tells you plagiarized phrases, combined with where they came from, and a shortcut to citing them instantly. Secondly, we built a companion app that allows users to track their essays and content over time.
How we built it
We built it using HTML5, Php, Bootstrap4, and Swift
Challenges we ran into
We ran into challenges when converting the file uploads, into searchable text
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we were able to implement, plagiarism checking, citation creation, and a companion app
What we learned
We pulled a lot from this project. One of the biggest things we learned was working with Bootstrap 4.
What's next for Essay Buddy
We plan to implement a machine learning algorithm, using our current feedback form, to better identify plagiarism, and create more accurate inline citations.
