It started with the team wanting to take on a challenge to improve health in our society with wearable tech. Some of our members have had family diagnosed with Alzheimer's; so we strove to find a way to make communication easier between patients and their caregivers and to remind patients of certain events, hoping we could find a way to make connections with their long term memories.
What it does
Memble uses voice data from the pebble smart watch to find patterns in Alzheimer's patients stories and sentences. Using our algorithm we decide on the most frequently talked about ideas, and at a consecutive time each day the patient is informed of the 3 most frequently forgotten things.
How we built it
Memble uses a python-flask web server which is directly connected to a mongo database, separate android and pebble applications interact with the flask server to push/receive data.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into many challenges, the most difficult one being integrating the servers and various apps we built together, and also the time constraint gave us some challenges, we may have bit off more than we could chew because we were focused on making Memble scale able.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're very proud that we take images from online and display them on the pebble via an app on our smartphone. We are also very proud of how we can record data using the pebble and send it to a caregiver so they can get updates on them.
What we learned
We learned about working as a team, setting dedlines for each other, and most importantly we learned a bunch of problem solving and CS skills that we will keep with us after the hack.
What's next for Memble
We plan on winning the competition...see our pitch
