Solution innovativeness

We are using a recommendation system that takes into account the characteristics and goals having as a reference the success of other people according to their studies

Solution transferability

Our solution can be used in other context, as is a recommendation system, and thus it can be used, with some changes of the user's input, to support other kind of decisions

Solution sustainability

Our plan is to implement a n algorithm for a recommendation system.

For mid term implementation will be fully implemented as these algorithms (collaborative filtering) are widely studied. For the long term, we expect to have a big amount of users so that the recommender system performs better.

Solution team work

We struggled a bit at first on how to handle the idea, but we managed to overcome pour challenges and end up teaming up quite well.
