Items used in this project
This project is designed to help improve people's moods. It does this using machine learning to detect emotions, and if they're consistently sad for a long time, then it will email them an image of a dog fetched from Reddit. I thought this would be a fun project, and it meant I got to see lots of dog pictures, and who doesn't like that! It works using the methods from the Google AIY python library, this allows you to continuously analyse a scene and detect faces and give their joy a score from 0 to 1. If their joy is less than 0.1 for 20 scans in a row, then the program will trigger the email section of the program, this fetches an image using the Reddit API, then sends it out using SendGrid.
