We have seen veteran families where a person is too tired to be angry, he talks about the innocence and honor of young soldiers. Then he may suddenly cry and the heart of the family members breaks all over again. We developed this application where a family member can click a picture of the person and using the Bose soundtouch, it will play music based their emotional state without bothering them.
We have a web application where we click the image of the veteran and recognise the current emotion on the face of the person. After recognising it, we select a playlist based on their emotion without bothering them and help them calm down. This application has been developed keeping in mind to control the anxiety issues of the veterans and help them make a smart home.
What it does
It takes a picture of a veteran and any other person too from a live running video in our application and recognize the mood of the person on the basis of our trained model and recommends the person song playlist through Spotify, which can improve the mental state and anxiety of the person.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Bose integration with Spotify and synchronization of the event with the backend, bose and spotify.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We built a home automation project helping veterans and they can listen to songs according to their mood and cheer themselves up.
What we learned
We learnt pretty new things during this hackathon. We learnt about Spotify and bose soundtouch integration. we also learnt about how we can use machine learning to recommend songs on basis of person's current emotions.
What's next for moodSwinger
We can improve the performance by increasing the training data set for more accurate results and we can also use speech recognition along with emotion recognition to have a better perspective of behaviour.
