In the bustling lives of nearly 20 million students across the United States, finding the time and opportunities to explore local communities and share meaningful moments can be both energy-consuming and time-consuming, particularly when it comes to researching and scheduling group hangouts. As a result, many opt for the easy solution of eating out, thus missing out on the memorable moments that local events can offer.
We are bridging this gap by aligning with people’s intrinsic habits of passive event discovery, bringing the events directly to them.
We utilize machine learning to generate hangout ideas, functioning as a personal assistant to help students discover the best places and times to enjoy meaningful gatherings with their friends.
This approach transforms the often burdensome task of planning get-togethers into a breeze, offering a seamless experience and enabling people to discover the true hidden gems all around them: memorable moments spent enjoying unique activities, together.
