Best Technical Solution – OpenHack 2017

Stephanie participated in OpenHack Uppsala 2017 together with her brother and two friends. They created an application that matches your abilities with mined skill keywords in job ads from Arbetsförmedlingen and tells you what additional skills you need in order to satisfy job requirements. In 36 h they managed to crawl ~700 job ads (unfortunately ran out of daily trial request) from three major career fields, mine for keywords using IBM Watson Natural Language Understanding tool, and set up a working prototype hosted on Amazon web service.
