It's always disappointing when you've had a great night out, but you can't remember the details the next day. It would be creepy to photograph everyone, but simple to take a short video with a quick scan of the room. Your goal is to build a social media platform with video upload as the main user interface. Your back-end processing will apply open source machine vision libraries such as OpenCV, OpenFace and others to capture faces, match them against known friends, see who is talking to who (from head orientation) and so on. You should package the results as a fun and engaging social media site. Consider making a plugin using the WeChat Video API - or perhaps this could be the next Facebook!
