As machine learning and natural language processing enthusiasts, we decided to build a data-driven application, which could help students like us. We love MOOCS, and we wanted to build something new and challenging with it.
How it works
We use some machine learning techniques (Latent Dirichlet allocation) on MOOCS video subtitles (coursera, udacity,...) to generate a map of the knowledge of someone, based on the speech in the MOOCS he saw.
Challenges I ran into
We are not front-end designers, and learning d3.js was a challenge.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
http://moocs.us -> Fully usable online application (responsive, fast, beautiful :) )
What I learned
How to code fast
What's next for Moocs.us
Startup maybe ?
