We came to QHacks with a great idea, but then someone bumped into me and they didn't apologize so being Canadian, I apologized for them. Then this got us thinking... what if there was an app for generating apologies?
What does Sorry Eh Do?
Sorry Eh? solves the all too familiar problem of creating situation-specific apologies, enabling our users to express regret in a convenient and effective way!
How We Built It
Challenges We Ran Into
(Anthony and Udit) There was an attempt to implement the IBM Watson tone analyser api, but was eventually scraped as it was more complex than expected. However, through all of our challenges, we've learned a lot for our next project.
What's Next For Sorry Eh?
We had some features in mind for this project that were not implemented due to time constraints. One of them being the IBM Watson tone analyser API that would read the text and tell you about emotions in specific sections. This would be something we could incorporate into our ratings for specific combinations that form an apology. Another being the ability for users to edit and add their own sections to the template, which would then be recorded and possibly displayed in the future.
