Whenever I finish writing an essay, I always have to stop and think "what should I name this thing??" I had also heard about Watson and thought that this would be a good opportunity to learn about the api while making a useful app.

What it does

It takes an essay as input and generates some possible titles based on the ideas contained inside of it.

How I built it

I utilized the concept insights service provided by IBM Bluemix in order to analyze the input text and I used python on the backend to generate the titles.

Challenges I ran into

My own confusion about how webapps run.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Learning the javascript necessary to complete the app.

What I learned

Interacting with IBM Bluemix and usage of cloud foundry tools for deployment.
became more familiar with javascript and web app

What's next for Essay Namer

More refined title generation (including clever use of idioms).
