Helping obese gamers make lifestyle changes
For over a decade, obesity in gamers has been a growing problem. This problem is often overlooked - mainly because the ones suffering are sitting at home alone, out of sight to any who wishes to be of help.
Many of these gamers spend a lot of time on social platforms. These platforms are a leading factor in the trouble of balancing their life. After all, these platforms are designed to keep you around and give you recommendations that fit you, while often not being the best for you.
These social platforms, while being a major antagonist, also create a great way to reach these isolated gamers. Through Discord, a leading online platform which for a long time was mainly aimed at gamers, I aim to reach this group of people and help them make the changes they have been wanting to make.
With the use of Machine Learning, the Discord open API allows users to collect data about users which can be used to give adjustable, personalized recommendations for the steps you need to take to make changes to your lifestyle. Feedback loops ensure the quality of these recommendations.
