We were interested in developing a product with machine learning and utilizing the SurveyMoneky API.
What it does
The web application accepts an image using a computer webcam and detects whether someone gives a thumbs up or a thumbs down and sends this information to SurveyMonkey through an API call.
How I built it
We created our product using Python along with the ImageAI library to create a custom machine learning model for the purposes of our project. We then created a web server using Pyramid to showcase our product.
Challenges I ran into
There were several challenges we tackled. First of all, learning how to use the ImageAI library to create a custom model for thumbs up and thumbs down was quite difficult. We also had difficulty setting up the web server with Pyramid and sending data between the back-end processes with the server.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We created a working product in under 36 hours that utilizes technology that none of us were not familiar with before.
What I learned
We learned how to create custom image classifying models with ImageAI and how to set up a server with Pyramid.
What's next for Just Your Feedback
We want to improve our image recognition algorithm so that it can detect more hands in a larger crowd of people
