We were inspired by Google Search Engine and voice recognition services such as Siri and Bixby for our queries.
What it does
Our application provides easy access to questions regarding space, using both written text and voice recognition. Also offers visual representation for the orbit of our solar system and precise location of International Space Station.
How we built it
We built this program using Python, APIs and several modules available for use. We first came up with a rough idea of our program and split up the work between the three of us. Then we started working on the logic behind the backend parts of the program and how the main screen would look. After we finished coding the bulk of the application, we put everything together and started debugging our code.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into problems with the application crashing on different operating systems. We also had trouble getting the different parts of the application to cooperate and work together without raising errors.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of how the application came out and how much we were able to code in just 24 hours.
What we learned
We learned about all the libraries and APIs available for use in Python, as well as different machine learning algorithms used in natural language processing and how we could incorporate that into our application.
What's next for Space Query
SpaceQuery intends to launch a website for a more professional feel. We also plan to add more interactive features and some simulations to help further the understanding of the world outside of our world.
