Implementing Chat Features with React Native in a Personal Robots Context
MAS: Media Arts and Sciences
Alex Chenl: email@example.com
This project would involve writing React Native features for a chatting mobile app, including search functionality, push notifications, etc. The features to implement would be open ended! The core features are completed, but I'm searching for a creative, motivated individual to help me build out fun and interesting extensions to the app. Our lab is exploring how we can use personal robots in the homes of senior citizens to promote socialization and decrease loneliness. One of these projects involves building a chat feature for the robot, which would allow users to chat with friends and family through their robot. The robot would send messages to a mobile app, which family and friends could download and respond with. I'm hoping to polish this app over the next couple of months and launch it in mid spring.
