Humans today don’t wonder, they wonder-then-Google. As a result, the accumulation of Google searches over a period of time acts as a reliable proxy for one’s state of mind, curiosities, ambitions, and fears included. We wanted to take a step closer towards awareness and use this data to analyse the self.
What it does
We've seen that Google has a lot of data about each and everyone of us, so we decided to transform that data into something which everyone can see. Our project takes your data from Google and shows you some charts for Youtube and Google searches.
How we built it
We used AngularJS for the front-end, with Amcharts for displaying the data. The backend is powered by ASP.NET and some of the data computation is done in python.
Challenges we ran into
Bringing the C# and Python code together was a bit tricky, but we decided to do it so to maximize the potential of every team member.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Actually finishing something, after lots of bad ideas and brainstorming.
What we learned
More about the data stored by Google, we consolidated our teamwork and toned our coding skills.
What's next for Search4Self
Integration with Facebook data, more intelligence for suggesting new things you should try, based on relations with friends, etc.
