Negativity is the killer in any conversation. Especially Telegram group chats. If you can get rid of the negativity, you can make the conversation more productive and more friendly!
What it does
Monitors Telegram chats and warns you when your they're becoming too emotionally erratic. Uses the Haven OnDemand sentiment analysis service.
How we built it
Node.js based Telegram bot server which uses the Haven OnDemand sentiment analysis api to work out if the chat is being too emotional.
Challenges we ran into
It's difficult to put people down without being offensive. As a result, we implemented the --offensive flag!
Accomplishments that we're proud of

The Telegram bot api! It was a load of fun working with it, and I'd definitely use it for a hack again!
