Our inspiration was to minimize the addictive nature of social media while still being able to share information about yourself to others in a quick and virtual way.
What it does
Internest allows people to get a better idea of their habits and activities in an easily digestible format. They can then choose to share this information with others and easily recognize common interests.
How we built it
We built this site using NextJS for the frontend, elasticsearch for categorization and indexing, Python for the backend, Clerk.JS for auth, spaCy for word embeddings, GPT2 for keyword extraction, MongoDB for storing general data and Docker for hosting MongoDB ad elasticsearch. We also used vis.JS for the graphical representation and Fast API.
Challenges we ran into
We had set our sights pretty high for what we could accomplish in a 24 hour period. A lot of the tech stacks we were not all completely comfortable with.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to have finished the primary functionality of our web app.
What we learned
We learned how to work well in a team and separate different tasks.
What's next for Internest
We hope to scale the project up to compare graphs with other friends. We also want to focus more on growth and personal development patterns.
