My grandma has a lot of modern technology, but doesn't understand how to use it, and is very vulnerable to phishing scams. It seemed she would contact me every week with similar questions to figure out her tech. We needed something that she could easily access and use on her own whilst having a conversation with what seems like a real person
What it does
People who are not tech savvy can come onto the easy to use application and have a conversation with Watson about how to use their technology. If grandma doesn't understand how to download her grandson's google drive photos from spring break onto her computer, she can ask Watson. We also added a Cyber news section that informs users of potential security threats and how to avoid similar ones
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We needed more time to implement all of Watson and learn more about it and integrating the Google Cloud Platform
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating a front-end application and completing more than we thought in a short time. And, we had a great time, met amazing people
What we learned
Learning Watson assistant as well as working as a team to complete a relatively difficult task. Project management was foreign to many of us, so learning that was invaluable.
What's next for Find Out Tech
The biggest thing is finalizing our features. We want to train our AI to be able to solve as many problems as possible and continue our google home development.
