YouTube money $$ encourages content creators to utilize click bait titles and other SEO tactics to receive the most views. That results in a less favorable search experience.

What it does

Allows you to search for videos based on what is actually SAID in the video. Imagine if videos were actually just web pages and you can google search them.

How I built it

We indexed over 300k YouTube videos (35 GB of transcript data) and grabbed their transcriptions(scope of the hackathon, but at scale there are no limitations) and used elastic search for searching

Challenges I ran into

Aggregating big/large amounts of data is tough at hackathons, since WiFi is flaky.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Being able to aggregate the data

What I learned

Data is fun

What's next for Invidia

We will be launching after the hackathon!
