Hello!!. we are building an easy-yo-use deep learning platform to analyze and get metrics from text and conversational data. You can check it in https://Deep-Talk.ai
You can cluster, classify data, or train custom deep learning models without programming a line of code. You did not even need to study something related to engineering to use the platform. We are also in Product Hunt https://www.producthunt.com/posts/deep-talk
We are working with a couple of insurance companies, it's really interesting what you can get from emails, chats, surveys, reviews or social media using deep learning.
That’s insightful! I’m assuming the quality is higher for the curated options compared to a random pick. Also booking/arranging the event for them. But I’m unsure if the value added is enough for customers to pay for it.
Deepfake Offensive Toolkit offers real-time deep fake web cam videos, An ethical usage I can think of using it for is for faking smile on my videos as remembering to smile on videos is cognitively exhaustive to me.
As a solution, it could help companies to buy analytics products in which they can watch and see if their ads are effective and they can target the right customer. I could make an analytics company that can help other companies to analyze and know if their ads are targeting the right people and getting positive responses so they can get a better idea of who are their customer base and how to sell to that crowd.
What do you think could be done which Google, Facebook Et al. haven't done so far to provide better insights for their advertisers? And they have the capacity to track their users beyond their platforms from birth to the grave.
I agree that online advertising is a mess though, At least for those without unlimited budget to throw at it.
As a solution, I could make a social media platform in which investors of any kind can find financial information regarding the results of the company and investors can be comunicated using this platform so they have a better idea of how can they perform.
Issues with accessing financial data seems to be a region specific problem, Where I live there are numerous services which offer such data + analysts view of the company's performance and if not it's accessible through govt. website since it's a public company. So if you mention your region, I'll ask the moderator to update the problem statement with it.
As for social media for stock market investment/trading, The main issue is people trying to game each other i.e. If one wants to sell, They'll tell others that they're buying; This is rampant in any stock market information website which has built-in social forum. E.g. Look at forum section of this highly rated stock information website in India - https://www.moneycontrol.com/india/stockpricequote/pharmaceuticals/drreddyslaboratories/DRL ; It's either people trying to game each other (or) outright spam trying to advertise their services. If you want high quality discourse, Then you need extraordinary moderation in place which is difficult to keep up with with high phase of stock market and so you need to solve these problems first.
Maybe impose some rules right when they begin creating an account where they can't scam other people and if they do so are banned. Another option is to pay a premium price in which users can comment to avoid scams and see if the user is not trying to scam other people.
Also, a good idea is to sign up in two ways: sign up as a company or as an investor. Companies can only make posts but investors can read their financials without dealing the bots trying to pump the stock/crypto they're promoting.
Nicely done! When I was using Wordpress coming up with open graph images was a sure.
For non WordPress websites, You could start by targeting the static page generators such as Hugo, Jekyll by writing and extension/plugin for them; At least that's what I had in mind to address this problem but never got to building it.
Everyone who is apart of the e-commerce,l and logistics world. Consumers need it cause it will save them a trip to the mail center and companies need it because it will ultimately get them some money back in theire pocket on these without having to do anything other then issue the refund
After using many productive apps I decided to create my own combining time, habit and mood tracker. I think that a great title of this could be 'A tracker for everyday activities' because the idea is to track all 24h of the day without gaps. The greatest difference of this app in my opinion is the feature to track time while unlocking the phone.
The design was built from ground up by me combining some inspirations, I hope you like it.
HR They put a huge list of requirements they have no idea what they even mean. Compouter science has nothing to do with web development. I been doing this for 20 years and dont even have a bschelor in anything. Most full stack dont go to college.
They put bachellor required to scare newcomers like you
Finally, I've built a project which directly addresses a problem related to Human memory, lack of thereof in the form of Memory Hammer to address the problem of Anki review accumulation ( /problems/384 ) .
Memory Hammer uses e-paper display to show the Anki cards which are due as an when its due, So that we need not wait for our review schedule. With Memory Hammer, Any time is good for a review like taking a break from the work (or) during a workout session since it's always by our side.
As a possible idea, I could make a platform in which customers can search, look and buy/rent their best tuxedos so they can decide what tuxedo suits them the best and get ready faster for their next wedding.
True, I've seen on numerous occasions people asking for a single subscription services for Movies/TV series/Gaming but unlike News these Entertainment subscription services doesn't seem to be struggling (at-least the top ones) as people are willing to pay for multiple subscriptions and with complex region-wise licensing issues of movies I doubt whether multi-subscription service would ever be a reality in this space.
Utmost, I see one big streaming service being acquired by a bigger one which again is a bad news for the consumers.
Although subscribers moving to other subscription platforms where their favorite show or movie is; could be one of the factors, I don't think it's the primary or at-least cannot confirm unless we see substantial rise in the subscriber numbers for the competing platforms. I think apart from the factors Netflix admitted(Pulling out of countries due to war, Password sharing etc.), I think global inflation and consumers cutting down on their non-essential expenses(which includes subscriptions not just limited to entertainment) are the real reasons.
TiPY keyboard is a one hand keyboard - https://tipykeyboard.com/en/home/ with their own TiPY layout, Regardless of having to learn new layout for typing the keyboard, The price is 350€ which although is relatively less expensive than other one-handed keyboards is still not an affordable keyboard for all.
If one is ready to learn a new layout for typing with one-hand keyboard then I think going for a DIY solution like https://artsey.io/ is the cost-effective way, Not sure whether this particular project - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dicYf7OiS3Q is currently maintained but there are other similar DIY projects out there.
I'm not trying to vilify smartphones in general, After all the advancement of smartphone technology have had numerous beneficial consequences from spill-over effects like advancement in compute power, optics, Internet penetration, Secure communication etc.
But I wanted to point out what I think is the root cause of smartphone addiction and I don't think a small population switching to dumb phones can address that.
Added a note to the monthly insights email about individual problem subscription, Those who subscribe to the Ideator plan can subscribe to individual problems for their monthly insights by clicking on 'WHO NEEDS THIS' on any problem.
Monthly insights are tailored for each individual, So apart from trending problem, startup idea for the month it would also contain insights for the problems you are subscribing to.
Those who have Ideator plan and not subscribing to individual problems are missing out on great value.
Because of this, I had the idea for how to solve it. I recently I finally started spending a few hours, here and there, putting together an MVP. So glad to say that it's ready for testing and to earn some feedback!
With this finally out there, I hope to learn if there's a market for Inviteable. It's very similar to Facebook Events, which I know gets plenty of use, so at the very least, I would think the market exists for certain groups.
I hope that Inviteable can help fill in the gap, and is a platform that provides a simple UX that accomplishes the basics exceptionally well.
In response to this, I decided to create my own music theory learning resource over at https://muted.io/. I wanted to create a website that would make it easy to play the different scales and chords online. I also wanted to make a resource that would be an easy reference and help me and others avoid having to remember so much. For example, I created this page for an easy reference to major and minor scales: https://muted.io/major-minor-scales/
My plan is to continue expanding this resource and add to it more and more, especially as I learn myself the music theory concepts and think of good ways to break them down in a simpler more straightforward way.
I hope that this solution is helpful to others that are facing a similar challenge.
It might be worth to note that most Windows & macOS users download all their software from their App Store and an average Linux/Unix user likely knows how to execute commands so this problem likely affects only those who download software from websites manually in Windows/macOS.
Although technically any file (e.g. .pdf) can be compromised to execute malicious code on our systems, Generic files don't usually come with hashes for integrity checks(Perhaps another larger problem?).
You need a development toolchain like Vercel/Netlify but our own CDN?
I guess it makes sense for large scale users who would want total control, But aren't majority of Vercel/Netlify users in early stage who cannot run their own CDN and find their edge delivery very useful?
Indeed! The target audience is users who'd like to take more control and deploy their application on alternative destinations. Usually, these are either applications with high traffic or users with GDPR concerns. When the application has a lot of traffic, Vercel/Netlify becomes very expensive.
We just released an integration on https://www.stormkit.io * which allows users deploying directly to BunnyCDN for instance, this was a request coming from a user who had concerns with:
I'm also considering individual hashtag based subscription, Say like subscribing to just eCommerce based problems and whenever a problem for eCommerce is posted you'll receive the email notification. Would you be interested in such a feature for monthly USD 5?
Who needs this are self-taught programmers which finished learning programming via courses or bootcamps and they want to apply for a job but don't want to compete against programmers with CS degrees.
What I could do is create a platform like a job board in which HR people can find self-taught programmers and they can have more confidence while applying for these kinds of jobs. This would solve the problem of finding a job in which they can perform the same tasks better than a person with a CS degree.
Btw, Many startups have been recruiting programmers without a CS degree for a while now. Udemy & Coursera certifications can add value, Of course one should be able to prove their programming skill without a degree creating and contributing to open-source projects has proven to be successful for many.
I am currently building ( https://tryonzauth.com ), basically to solve this problem, which I myself find painful, first thing I always build is authentication/login. With this solution, you can add authentication within 5mins with the SDK, ease the signup process (no forget password etc...), using magic link passwordless authentication. JWT token is just a standard token where most languages got libraries to read it (email claims) etc...
Focus on building your product, and it's free to get started. Free tier atm is about 2.5k active users per month, but not set in stone yet.
We are looking for feedbacks and features suggestions, to get to our MVP/Beta version, currently in alpha/testing phase.
I'm very interested in learning about this need! I would love to know where or how I can engage with manga artists so I can learn more about where they're publishing currently, what's not working, how they would like publishing to work, etc. (I am a web developer.)
I have read manga throughout my life and have long thought that the current manga infrastructure is unjustifiably broken. (I am only familiar with Japanese manga, however.) At least for Japanese manga, the publishers in Japan make their manga so incredibly inaccessible to foreign readers despite the huge popularity in some of their works and the unbelievable amount of scanlation work that fans put into (voluntarily!).
As an avid manga reader, I would love to see a platform where I pay a monthly fee to legally read manga and support creators. But I am not a manga artist and don't understand their needs and obstacles, so I would love to learn more.
Hey Bakshara! We also believe that it is important to measure the carbon footprint of your everyday tasks. We, as a team of developers, are trying to use our skills with technology to empower businesses and individuals to become more sustainable.🌳 We were really driven by the fact that we as developers want to contribute as little as possible to digital pollution. Instead, we want to have a positive impact on the environment! 🌍 GreenFrame helps developers build low-carbon, energy-efficient web applications and reduce their environmental footprint, using a state-of-the-art platform based on real science. Feel free to check it out yourself: https://greenframe.io :)
Since I posted this problem it's now proven that individual climate action is a propaganda by the Big Oil and that large corporations are responsible for the climate impact.
Perhaps companies operating at the scale of Google or Facebook could benefit from solutions like yours, But then again they are mostly green as making data-centers green is great for their profit margin. But I don't think an individual developer or startup need to worry about their web application impacting climate; I'd love to be proven wrong with evidence.
I see where you are coming from, Bakshara. We believe that we as individual developers can indeed make a difference. We had the opportunity to work with Le Monde, one of the biggest newsletters in France, and we managed to reduce their website's emissions by 23%, or more precisely a reduction in carbon emissions from an initially 50 mg to 38.5 mg. With 120 million visits per month to their website, this represents a saving of 1.38 tonnes of CO2 emissions per month. This shows that even "small" improvements can have a major impact. If you're curious to find out more about our approach and research, feel free to check out our blog: https://marmelab.com/fr/blog#sustainability.
I appreciate the reply, I guess any reduction of energy consumption is good and so your direction does seem reasonable but at the starting price of 125€/mo it's way beyond the reach of entry-stage startups let alone individual developers.
I think there needs to be a separate open-source version of your framework so it can be used by many and can get valuable data to prove your claims and you can charge large organizations for setting it up/support like you already do.
For the last months I've been working on Cluee - a toolbox for all the freelancers to help them organize their work and finance. As there are many such apps on the market, I wanted for mine to be fun, beautiful and easy to use. The first MVP took me few months to complete, and is available at https://cluee.app/
The key features are:
- Time tracking combined with reports for customers
- Setting goals and tracking finance with your monthly timesheets
- Invoicing with the ability to automatically remind your customer using defined scenarios
I agree with Yogesh, If you could build a levels.fyi for freelancers then I don't see why it wouldn't be just as successful. Instead of salaries for companies, You can compare fees for common skills across different freelancing websites according to their experience.
r/covidlonghaulers subreddit is a good resource for those suffering from long COVID, It functions as a support group for people suffering from the persistent complications of COVID-19 including but not limited to issues with Cardiovascular, Pulmonary, Neurological, Gastrointestinal etc.
Who needs this are small business owners who are planning to sell their preferred objects to a niche market or the entrepreneurs who want to scale as big as they can by choosing the right people. So the solution is implementing AI and machine learning to help these people obtain the customers they want to have so they can grow their business knowing already which customers they can get and expand once they obtain those customers.
I think that a platform which includes a dashboard about how are you marketing your product and which strategies best work for you can be extremely helpful since it helps them to know what the customer needs so the business owners can sell their products to them and they can expand efficiently. Other features might include helping analyze how is the business spending money so it can track records of their expenditures and know if they are making a profit or not (checking employee salaries, inventory, etc).
What I'm thinking about is to make a platform based on trading certain stocks with the help of machine learning and AI which can help the users to make better financial decisions for themselves according to the goals they want to take. For example: they create an account so they can retire earlier, so the AI can help them predict which course of action is the best according to their needs. Or they want to receive the best dividends so the AI can help them choose the best performing dividend stocks.
There is a running joke in the industry, If someone comes up with 'law of universe' then they would be the richest person in the world because they could predict the stock market.
People have been trying to predict stock market using mathematical models since the dawn of computers, Alogrithmic trading is allowed by most exchanges and Hedge funds using Quantitative models have largely been successful.
So the answer for why there is no AI service which I can pay $5/month to get profitable returns next month is because no AI could predict stocks for short-term movements due to large number of variables.

A new non-invasive biomarker sensor from Rockley Photonics seem to address this by using infrared instead of traditional LEDs for measuring biomarkers. Since it's infrared and that the melanin pigment is invisible to it; Color of the skin is not a factor for such sensor.
Upcoming wearables like smartwatches with such laser-based spectrophotometer sensors are en-route and can measure wide range of biomarkers from blood glucose to blood pressure.
Oh that explains why this need-gap has higher than average views than most new need-gaps. Thanks for bringing it to me.
I'm not into NFTs, I presume the URL to the actual content stored on the NFT becomes invalid? IPFS should address this as long as peers exist, But just as archive.org there could be need-gaps to make this process seamless and accessible.
Sir, but isn't the non-interactive nature i.e the simplicity of being able to convey deeper meaning with a static image the core philosophy of a meme?
Hence even the cave man paintings are technically considered a meme.
I wonder whether making a meme interactive would make it cease to exist as a meme Or whether an interactive meme would add additional depth to the memes like depending upon the reader action the meaning could change.
Occasionally I see people are using reddit's gallery feature to construct a meme with multiple images where the reader is required to slide each image, So some basic level of interactive memes do seem to exist.
Thanks for letting me know about people using the gallery feature like that - it's the kind of story that we remember!
The creative way people use very simple features to build new experiences is the kind of "aha" moment I want to make possible with Touchgram - https://www.touchgram.com/ .
I'm not (just) targeting memes. It's a convenient example of the many popular things people consume which are almost-always static experiences - you sit and watch something, rather than being able to interact with it.
"since Touchgram functions inside iMessage, It probably doesn't suffer from chicken-and-egg issues of larynx"
I was originally working on a cross-platform version using a similar game engine (Cocos2D-X in C++, rather than Apple's SpriteKit in Swift). A mentor advised me in 2018 to try to get it working either inside Facebook Messenger or Apple iMessage. The only platform with a rich enough API is iMessage. Apple take care of the notification side, because Touchgrams arrive like any other message. They also provide streamlined installation - if you don't have Touchgram installed and I send you one, Aple put the install link right there in the message bubble.
Great points about platform reliance and these are why I decided Messenger was too dangerous (and limited) for us to use.
Apple's approach with iMessage app extensions is very different - they run as a kind of pure native app, which is called to take control over 95% of the screen for user interaction and then hands back a bundle of data for the message. So Apple preserve user privacy but we aren't running in a weird non-native environment. Much of Touchgram's core logic runs on Mac also and changing it to be "just" a normal iOS app would be very straightforward. We have an in-house testbed app which is just a standard app. Most of the work would just be adding notification support and a bit of UI to replace what iMessage gives us.
All the other extension mechanisms for different messaging platforms that I've evaluated do so via some kind of cut-down HTML running under control of the messenger app. That's much more limiting and vulnerable.
You also make a very good point about monetisation control - Apple don't impose any special restrictions on apps inside iMessage - we have similar subscription and marketplace plans to many apps. I've not reviewed FB Messenger's restrictions for a couple of years but unsurprised.
As a solution, there could be better looking cash registering machine with fresher looks and an easier to use software in which you can register objects faster and easier. As a result, this can lead to people paying for their products so much faster that the time spent in the line to pay will be dramatically shorter.
There could be few shops which are still using old mechanical cash machines while the majority have switched to computerized systems; All it requires now is a mobile app, a PoS machine and so it's not a matter of cost to set it up.
Did you ask why they didn't switch to a computerized system? My guess is that they are not just willing to change, Perhaps and old mom&pop shop with very few customers at a time.
As a solution, there could be a platform in which is a full marketplace but instead of buying the product completely, you rent it for a certain amount of time and you pay the one who gives you the object to keep it and use it well. If it breaks, you pay a fee so the buyer won't mishandle it.
Services like archive.org saves web pages among other things and help address link rot directly. But saving individual pages protected by captcha are not scalable and to address this archive.org provides couple of solutions:
ArchiveBot; An IRC bot which saves entire website upon request.
I've used ArchiveBot to save entire websites with hundreds and thousands of URLs before and yet to try the API to address the aforementioned problem.
Even if URLs are archived in real-time, Identifying and replacing the URL when it's not accessible anymore requires additional work. So there's a need for for an end-to-end solution for identifying and addressing link rot.
Netvyne - A Chrome extension to leave and read comments on any URL
I was first introduced to this Chrome extension idea by a friend a couple years ago in college, and worked on it on-and-off as a side project (in Python+JS). At the start of last year, I picked it up as a serious undertaking and re-wrote the tool in Golang+React with a tightly-knit team of 5 fulltime people.
What differentiates us is that we’re building content moderation from the very start, which is more of an operations problem than a technical problem. We’re committed to civility of discussion over all else; if that means sacrificing “free” speech, or taking the site down temporarily while we scale up moderation, so be it. Timing-wise, people are increasingly familiar with the idea of Chrome extensions, and have also recognized the value of comments due in large part to the popularity of Reddit in recent years.
If you have a moment, try out our extension and please let us know what you think!
