We worked on a Code for a Cause and Haven OnDemand Project. Our vision is to engage masses to their local civic issues, and not just have easy access to public data but also one day be the eyes and ears of civic incidents around them and contribute to a growing central public data brain. One big reason why civic participation today, such as through proposing referendums, activism and investigative journalism is hard, is because current volumes of public data is very cumbersome to access and draw correlation from. Our mobile app is a search engine to only public records, down to being able to search every word in them. This kind of powerful capability does not exist for any current US city council. We build this project leveraging HPE Haven OnDemand APIs for indexing, document store and AI for text summarization. We only start with a list of information sources, from which data is regularly updated in an automated fashion for new records. Our search interface, also finds video links and related records. In next steps we want to expand data repository links. surface local trends to people and let them subscribe to keywords alerts.
