Driven by my curiosity of knowing what the latest academic research is, I created this app which shows a random trending academic paper each time I open a new tab in chrome called Paper of The Day
I leveraged the Mendeley Recommender API to get a list of trending papers each day for a range of academic disciplines.
I then applied a topic classification model on each paper’s title and abstract to try and guess the main topics. This topic was the passed to the Unsplash API to return an appropriate background image and make everything pretty.
I go into more detail about building this app in my blog post, which you can find here.
