Nittany AI Challenge 3rd Place - Fall 2019

Participated in an AI challenge (solo team) at HackPSU (Penn State university-wide public Hackathon, 1000+ attendees)

The Java software for first responders and local governments scrapes social media by hashtag or a list of residents, scans the images uploaded which can be sorted by date, uses AI to evaluate what's going on in the pictures, sends the data from Google Cloud Platform to MongoDB Atlas, and then sends the data to the Java application to be viewed by the user. The iOS phone application allows residents to see local news stories quickly, request items, request assistance, see if other neighbors are meeting up, and see who else needs help and if they can help themselves.
