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.
