What's in our candy??

We built a deep learning model to read the internet to find out what's in our candy

Built by students from AI Camp with help from our mentors.

It's often not what it seems

We often feed dangerous food to our children and do not know that we are doing so...

Thus we used a deep learning model to learn about the ingredients in our food.

Really bad candies based on our study

These results are directly from our algorithms reading Google search results. Thus most likely, this will be consistent if you are doing this research yourself via searching on Google. The minimum score is -10, while the maximum score is 10. The more negative the scores are, the more articles we found on Google that said the ingredient is harmful for your health. The candy scores are just simple average of the ingredient scores.
