Inspiration

Filing forms is panic and required a lot of data. I was inspired by some automated form filing, and how machine learning can read and translate images into data. We need an app that takes pictures of forms and passport, then use it in the future when we need to book a trip or file a form.

What it does

This Application is intended to be a chatbot that will receive images from users and use machine learning to extract information from these images. These images can be forms or passports, and the application will translate the images into data which can be used later for any other purposes.

How I built it

I built it with AWS, JavaScript and node.js. I used AWS SDK to link the application to Amazon SageMaker endpoint and to use Textract. I passed images to test the application, handle output, and I triggered the functions with messages from a Facebook Messenger chatbot. It was intended to be a chatbot, but unfortunately I wan't able to finish on time.

Challenges I ran into

I was not able to join the hackathon since it started, therefore I did not have time to finish the project as expected. Also, handling the responses was very challenging, but it general it was an amazing experience.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I am proud that I learned many new and helpful things in a short period of time. Also, I reached a good point that others can add to and build some amazing applications.

What I learned

I have learned how AI is so helpful and can be used easily in Amazon SageMaker. Also, Cloud computing is extremely fast and efficient according to my experience with AWS.

What's next for Verify Now

Anyone is welcome to build on and add to this experience. Next can be, pipe the data into a DynamoDB for each user. Moreover, develop a tool that will use these data to file a form or book a trip.
