Motive to find a person's social account after a meeting.
What it does
Users take pictures of people they meet at meetups, conferences, hackathons. With the image / person's name as input the application finds social profiles of the person in the image. We started with LinkedIn for now.
How we built it
An Android frontend for a Django based https server.
Challenges we ran into
No LinkedIn API's to search for a person's profile. So we created a work around.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to search LinkedIn without a default API, and import the data into our app
What we learned
What's next for FLMatcher
An app that can find all social profiles of a person in a meetup, maybe with just facial recognition.
