The rise of fake news inspired us to tackle the issue of misinformation in the modern world.
What it does
This app provides users with summaries of news articles and suggests related sources for them to read as well in order to consider alternate perspectives. Moreover, they will receive suggestions for news articles related to trending topics and their location.
How we built it
We built this app through Python and its supporting libraries including sumy, and NLTK.
Challenges we ran into
The major issue we ran into was of accessing relevant news based on the user location.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud to apply the skills we learned in a short period of time to create a successful product.
What we learned
Specifically, we gained experience in data analytics through technologies like the Jupyter Notebook.
What's next for What's Happening?
In the future, we hope to expand to include articles in other languages.
