We are looking for developers, who are capable of creating a web-based AVATAR. The AVATAR shall be - at the order of his owner/ user - able to:
- create his own email- and Facebook account
- crawl through websites (e.g. by using the Google- or Bing-search-result-list) and look out for predefined information (e.g. did the content of a website change, did a certain product reach a defined price-level, does a website contain certain words, dates etc.
- handle this information as instructed by the user: make a screenshot of the page and save it, add the link of that page to a link-list, send a mail or sms to a defined target-address
- click on defined areas/ buttons of a defined web-page at a defined time, enter defined content in fields, save the result to an excel-sheet or word-file, make a photo of the page etc.
- and any more ideas you might have
The basic idea is to create a AVATAR which has a) a virtual identity and b) can do things in the web for his user (research, daily tasks, checking mail, sending mail or sms etc.).
We will give the job to the team that will
- come up with the best concept for such an AVATAR (capabilities, user/AVATAR interface)
- be able to prove that it can complete the job within a time-frame of max. 6 months
