I want to create a platform that connects people to local experts when they travel. Through the platform, people would be able to search for local experts they’d want to work with: photographers, tour guides, musicians, and more. The website would work in a similar way to how Uber and Lyft work, but instead of being able to just request a ride, you’d be able to be matched with a local expert for whatever you might need. When someone searches for a local expert, they would be presented with a list of experts that match their search. When the person selects an expert, they would have the option to request a session. The expert would then accept the request, and ...Read more

The expert would then accept the request, and the expert and the person would be able to chat about the services that the expert offers and the cost of the session. The expert would also be able to provide the person with a price estimate, or the expert could simply charge the person a flat fee for the session. When the session is completed, the expert would be able to provide feedback and a review for the person, and the person would be able to do the same for the expert. 

Is this something you’d find useful when traveling?

I want to create a recommendation engine so groups can decide what to watch on Netflix together. Right now, the algorithm works well for individuals, but what if two or more people are watching together, and they can’t decide what to watch? This algorithm would take each person’s personal preferences and blend them together to recommend films and TV that the group would enjoy together. As groups watch more frequently together, the algorithm understands what to recommend better and the recommendations get more and more personalized Is this something you’d use?

Everyone knows that exercise is good for you, but it can be really intimidating to get started. Maybe you feel like you’re not fit enough, you’re not good at sports, and so you just decide not to start. Having friends and making things a social experience might be able to help lower that barrier to getting started and discover new ways to get active and meet people, without already needing to be really good at the sport. My idea is for an app where users put in a sport they want to learn, and they’re matched with other people who put in the same sport and are also beginners. The app suggests a location where they can play that sport that’s ...Read more

Everyone knows that exercise is good for you, but it can be really intimidating to get started. Maybe you feel like you’re not fit enough, you’re not good at sports, and so you just decide not to start. Having friends and making things a social experience might be able to help lower that barrier to getting started and discover new ways to get active and meet people, without already needing to be really good at the sport.

My idea is for an app where users put in a sport they want to learn, and they’re matched with other people who put in the same sport and are also beginners. The app suggests a location where they can play that sport that’s equal or so distance between the people in the group, and can help book the space, if it’s a reservation-required location. 

This way, people can get started both with getting more physically active and meeting new people, without the existing barrier of needing to be good enough at something that you don’t embarrass yourself. I think this could have some interesting social and health consequences, and I hope it helps people try out new things and lead healthier lives.

Is this something you or someone you know might like to try?
