Success Story Garje Marathi AI mentoring
Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is impacting all areas of our life.
I teach AI at the University of Oxford. I have been mentoring students and start-ups at Oxford for AI.
So, when Anand proposed to me the idea of creating an AI mentoring programwithin the Garje Marathi Innovation Academy, I was happy to set it up from a technical perspective.
We started with some simple guidelines for the AI mentoring program
• We received a wide range of applications from farming, personal feedback,
• Youngest participant only 19!
• All five participants completed the program and have a demo
• Selection criteria was based on practical feasibility(building a baselineproduct in three months)
• The initiative required time and effort with regular follow up
The selected initiatives and members were:
Farm Assistance Device for fruit farmers to improve farmproductivity while reducing use ofirrigation & fertilizers. – by Sanket Kedar. Objective: Develop AI & IoT based intelligent farm assistancedevice for farmers. Uses time series data
Object detection utilizing AI and Secure Edge ComputingByShreyas Panditrao. Objective: Use computer vision to detect the presence of hardhats (PPE) in the field in hostile environments(ex: mines). Uses computer vision on edge devices
Public Grant Prediction and Fraud DetectionBy Samir Gujar & Yuwaraj Shinde. Objective of this project is to learn the grant makingpattern/model for EU grants and Applications. Using thesepatterns/models we will be helping the Organization to catch thefraudulent attempts and to predict which application will begetting the grants. Uses natural language processing.
YouBetterMe Personal feedback tool –by Amol Parab and Akshay Sankpal. Objective - To enable important conversations and feedback. Uses natural language processing.
To develop an anomaly detection toolBySagar Warke. Objective: Develop models for anomaly / outlier detection for IoT Data. Uses supervised and unsupervised anomaly detection models
