It was a good opportunity for us to explore a framework that we were interested in for a while and hone in our data science skills. Besides this, we hope that our application could give novice data scientists a glimpse of what can be achieved through data science and potentially inspire them to continue learning more about it. Moreover, we believe our application could be useful for the general population since it offers them a relatively easy way for them to learn some interesting insights about a particular data set.
How we built it
The application was written in Python using the Dash framework. We also used data science libraries, such as sci-kit-learn and NumPy.
Challenges I ran into
The main challenges came from the fact that we decided to use a framework that we weren't very experienced with. Thus, during the hackathon, we spent the majority of the time learning more about the framework and discovering which tools of the framework would be useful for us when creating our application.
What I learned
We learned how to build applications using the Dash framework and the features that the framework has to offer.
