Locrafts **Personal Project**

Locrafts is all about generating a buzz for local creativities using machine learning. It finds  local gift makers and designers situated in the United Kingdom. Everything is pulled together, analysed and displayed in a single portal/website where the designers and their gifts are then displayed. The results can be filtered by the colours of the gift products and the location of the designers.

There are many factors behind Locrafts decision making process. Some of these include, analysing what you post on your website and what you share on your social media accounts (if api’s are permitted). Other factors are hidden for obvious reasons but the algorithm takes into account a lot of factors; it may decide against displaying some authors and their gifts on the platform. Therefore some of the gifts discovered may never reach the website in its attempt to reduce any spam gifts that  could be posted and shared on the platform.

The system is built using cutting edge technologies: AWS is used for hosting the machine learning models, React is used for the front end interface and NodeJS  is used for the backend api configuration.

Testimonials

BAAM has worked with Dean for the last 2 years. He helped us set up a website for BAAMfest 2015 and it was a great experience. After the festival Dean was more than kind to help us revamp the website and personalise it. After initial brainstorming he successfully translated our sketchy ideas into a vibrant website. He has always made time to accommodate our requests and assist with hiccups. He is very easy to communicate with and is fast responsive. I particularly like his work cause he has a strong understanding of how to illustrate and communicate ideas through design. Last but not least Dean has worked voluntarily with us all this time, which speaks volumes for his ethos and character.
