Music and Images are the strong triggers of Nostalgia

What it does

Our app creates a simple, yet beautiful short clip that takes you down the memory lane by combining relevant photos, Facebook posts, and music!

How we built it

We matched a user's photos (from Facebook) to favorite songs (from Spotify) during specific time periods. We then stitched the photos into a short clip that also includes positive Facebook comments related to different events shown in the photos.

Challenges we ran into

Connecting to BlueMix, Fetching Facebook content

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting the app to fully function

What we learned

Flask (python platform), Ibm-watson

What's next for ThrowBack

Adding more photo sources, improving algorithm's efficiency!
