Elite Search
Advanced social media search engine using OCR (optical character recognition).
The problem Elite Search solves

Now you can search social services like Instagram the way you always wanted to. Social services only perform basic text searches, which seriously hinders what you can find. Elite Search is generic enough to have many use cases. Two of them are:

  • For important updates: We all follow companies, TV shows, etc. that we love. But in order to do so, we must check Twitter, Instagram, etc. on a daily basis. Not only is this time consuming, but you could easily miss out on the one important update you were spending all that time reading spam on. Using Elite Search, you can go through archives of posts in a fraction of the time.
  • For fun: Although mostly for fun, many (many) people like to see where they and there friends have been mentioned. One very popular such scenario is the user's college's confession page ?. So now you can quickly find who was mentioned instead of scanning through the hundreds of posts made each year.
Challenges we ran into

We wanted to use bleeding edge technologies like blockchain or ML, but hadn't learnt any yet, which is why we struggled so much with using OCR. We got over it by sleeping for only 1 hour in the last 30 hours.
