I was lucky to find a professor who enjoys robotics as much as I do. She was my advisor for my Master's Thesis. Others might have trouble finding professors and/or students with matching research interests. That is why we built this platform.
What it does
It indexes students and professors, and generates matches like a dating website; however, the compatibility rating is based on the shared areas of research interest and proximity.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Filtering search results and displaying them in an intuitive way.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Fluid and responsive UI; hosted on Heroku.
What we learned
CSS should not be trifled with.
What's next for Scholaborate
Improve heuristics for filtering, allowing people to create their profiles.
