COVID19 has confined us all in our rooms. Most if not all the time, we are in our rooms working on homework, doing projects, for like 4-5 hrs a time. According to studies, this is the exact opposite of how we should be maintaining our lives. Studies show we should be sitting for a maximum of 30 minutes at a time. We sit in a chair for hours doing homework to only then realize we are now exhibiting back/neck pain. This is where the idea of MoveAI comes. MoveAI is a web app that tracks how long you've been sitting and lets you know when to get up to stretch or just take a break.
What it does
MoveAI uses the power of machine learning to help those that lose track of time to improve their lifestyle and physical health. It uses image classification to determine whether a user is sitting or standing, and if the user is standing too long, the app will let the user know by alarm.
How I built it
This project was built on ReactJs and uses an image classification model trained by Google's AutoML. MoveAI also implements Google Firebase for authentication purposes.
Challenges I ran into
Difficulties that were run into was the duration of running a model with many images. You had to be sure your dataset was spread out.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm proud of the accomplishment done with the ReactJS web app development.
What I learned
I learned that patience is key in these hackathons. Yes, you have only 24 hours, but you should sketch out a plan before attack blindly.
What's next for MoveAI
Next for MoveAI is to collect user data with permission. I plan to use the Cloud Firestore to collect necessary data needed to make MoveAI a better experience for users.
