Bring Science and transparency into Politics
What it does
It scans transcripts of political debates, analyze personality of the candidates along a rich set of criteria and maps it with your preferences to recommend you a candidate. You can also send direct feedback to candidates.
How I built it
We've used Flashband, a new platform for feedback and personal brand management and integrated it with IBM Watson, mashed them up in a new application hosted by .Club
Challenges I ran into
Access to long enough transcript of debate to have reliable personality analysis
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We managed to bring Science into political debate and choice of candidate in 24 hours !
What I learned
IBM Watson API
What's next for Find your favorite presidential candidate
We can not only help you find your best candidate based on their debates and personalities, but we can also allow you to rank them along skills you think are important and send them feedback anonymously or not and see all the statistics sent by all other people. A crowd-sourced political feedback which can finally provide to politicians a clear view of what people really think about them and their program, and the gap with the image they try to project.
