After our last meeting, the entire team agreed on a direction for the metric. The students agreed that the most interesting approach would be to go the way of natural language processing for analyzing the reviews and descriptions of applications in the Google Play store.
At this step, the team is tasked with finding the tools to perform the natural language processing as well as writing a script to crawl the relevant websites and gather data for processing. We will meet again in the next week or so to discuss our progress on these tasks.
