We wanted to harness the power of Clarifai's image recognition to take more control over what we see on the internet.

What it does

This is a chrome extension where the user can choose celebrities they do not want to see while browsing the internet and a category of gifs to replace their photos with. For example, I could tell the plugin that I do not want to see images of Donald Trump and instead I want to see gifs of kittens.

How we built it

We used JavaScript to get information from web pages, make requests to Clarifai and Giphy, and replace certain images with gifs.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into challenges figuring out how to create a chrome extension and how to formulate our request to Clarifai

Accomplishments that we're proud of

This is my first hackathon and I am proud to have learned so much and accomplished creating this chrome extension

What we learned

We learned more about how to use Chrome developer tools and JavaScript to interact with webpages

What's next for Grab it by the Giphy

We want to make this plugin more customizable
