We were driven by emotion and the desire to engage human element into technology.
What it does
Our project utilizes Clarifai's face-recognition API to detect facial expressions on the human face, namely in the form of a selfie. The facial expression calls on a random gif using the GIPHY API.
How we built it
We used JSON, Curl, Twilio API, GIPHY API, terminal, flask, python, and Clarifai's API.
Challenges we ran into
Exposing the local host to a public server, which would serve as a link for parsed data from Clarafai's API.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to send texts to and from our phone with Twilio API and GIPHY API. Additionally, we were able to gather specific classes from results.
What we learned
We familiarized ourselves with Terminal syntax as well as with 3 other APIs.
