As the COVID stay at home orders near the one year mark, more and more people are experiencing quarantine sickness and depression. We’ve been unable to see friends and family for months on end and that lack of social interaction takes a large toll on anyone’s mental health.

How I built it

Our team used React and Node as the main framework for this project. We chose this route because it was the best way for us to make an interactive and dynamic web app.

Challenges I ran into

We were all very new to building an app from the ground up and it was a learning process even to just get the project set up. We had issues with sending data from the front end to the back end but eventually, after a lot of error testing, we were able to figure it out and get the app working

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We are very proud that we were able to successfully build a functioning app from scratch incorporate IBM Watson into this project. The use of AI allowed us to reach our goals for the product.

What I learned

We learned a lot about React and how to incorporate APIs, node, and Firebase along with it.

What's next for Tranquility

The next steps for Tranquility is ideally for it to be cleaned up and perfected so that it looks like a more cohesive and professional website. We want it to be actually put to use by doctors and their patients since we're all feeling the quarentine blues and an outlet for you to talk about your emotions is very useful in these times. In addition to that, this technology can save someone's life in the right situations.
