Project 1: SDK for StoryWeaver reader experience
StoryWeaver progressive web app (PWA) has a content reader experience built which allows easy consumption of stories (both online/offline) on the platform for children who are in the stage of developing the conceptual model of associating words with their corresponding visual representation. This project would aim to build a Software Development Kit (SDK) which could allow porting this reader experience to mobile platforms (Android/iOS).
Expected Impact: The easy to use web reader experience availability via SDK would encourage developers on mobile platforms to recreate the seamless reading experience on mobile.
Deliverable: SDK for reader experience with a dummy Android app using the SDK for the currently available PWA reader experience
Project 2: Predictive Multilingual search on StoryWeaver
StoryWeaver supports story consumption in ~280 languages including a lot of underserved languages. The aim of this project is to build a predictive search platform which supports this large language scalability.
Expected Impact: A predictive search available in native underserved languages would help users easily discover high quality content available on the platform.
Deliverable: A multilingual predictive search module using open-source tools like ElasticSearch which can be integrated on the current StoryWeaver platform.
