Whatshappening aims to connect people through activities. Using IBM Watson personality insights, whatshappening suggests activities nearby with people who share a similar personality.

Event data is obtained from Eventbrite and passed to the TMForum product catalog API so events can be queried based on a user's location and preferred start and end times. User's Twitter feeds are analysed and passed to IBM Watson Personality Insights to allow matching to occur.

Having obtained nearby activites or events and potential people to participate with, the results are displayed to the user.

Next steps:

  • Providing messaging functions to allow users to connect through the app
  • Monetize the solution - suggest users all go for dinner at a nearby restaurant.
