Most Successful Innovation Project You've Worked On

I worked on a school project, something similar to Spotify but more text related where a user can give out a few words that he/she likes, and the AI model would then go back and suggest the top 5 songs with the highest ratings with those words in it. This way, the user gets to pick what kind of lyrics he/she wants to listen to and then get recommendations based on ratings, genre, artists, etc.
