We all love music, so we wanted to help music listeners. Since the theme of the hackathon was social good, we decided to make a project that helped music listeners with emotional health.
What it does
HeartBeat is a website that recommends you a different Spotify playlist depending on your mood. The user can manually input their mood from a selection of buttons or the camera can automatically identify the user's emotion.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had not used GCP before, so setting up accounts and integrating its Python into our existing HTML was quite hard to navigate.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the GCP integration because we came in knowing nothing, and yet we created a project that has webcam and emotion analysis functionality!
What we learned
What's next for HeartBeat
With more time HeartBeat would become a mobile app for Android and iOS, and we would use the Spotify API to recommend more personalized and varied playlists depending on the ratio of emotions displayed.
