We were inspired by futuristic novels about A.I., the growing interest in machine learning concepts, and simply the idea of human-robot interaction (possibly in the near future!)
What it does
Visualyrics is a game/quiz in which the player guesses the song based on the sentiment analysis that the machine has performed on the lyrics.
How We built it
Challenges We ran into
Retrieving lyrics was a hassle, due to multiple multiple data formats, proprietary restrictions, software versions, installations and web authentication problems. Finding a proper library for WebGL, because all of them were waaaay too complex and time-consuming for our simple visual output.
Accomplishments that We're proud of
Taking on the craziest API ideas and scraping websites like a pro. Working with both Watson and Lexalytics machine learning APIs - certainly a lot of fun!
What We learned
MACHINE LEARNING!! OpenGL into WebGL! Extra networking protocol stuff! There are a lot of different curious utensils.
What's next for Visualyrics
We're gonna improve our program to output more accurate results! Yay!
