Problem Statements

A State Web Portal for Women Sexual Harassment at Workplace

Sexual harassment at the workplace is a serious issue that affects women all over the world. It can be defined as any unwanted behavior or act of a sexual nature that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment for women. Unfortunately, many women do not report sexual harassment due to fear of retaliation, lack of support, or knowledge of how to report the incident. Therefore, the need for a state web portal for women sexual harassment at the workplace is necessary.

Empowering Social Networks with Blockchain Technology

In recent yearsa, social networks have become increasingly integrated in our live. These networks enable us to make connections with anyone in the world. At the same time, blockchain technology enables frictionless cross-border payments and trade with anyone in the world. The similar functions of these two nascent technologies present a number of new business opportunities for us to explore. In this challenge, we would like you to use your creativity to build a product by combining popular social networks and Algorand blockchain. The goal is to make value flow through the internet as frictionlessly as information does today. You can think of this as creating ‚Äúthe Internet of Value‚ÄĚ.

Online Tests Proctoring

In online tests without proctoring, cases are often reported of impersonation and cheating. Students either ask someone else to take the test on their behalf or use methods of cheating like referring to a textbook, using smartphones or other devices to search for answers online or taking help from a friend. The two major concerns of the customer are cheating and student authentication. It ensures the candidate focuses on the test screen during the test; there is enough light in the room and checks for suspicious objects to red flag the test. It also uses face recognition to do student authentication. Develop a suitable product that can perform all these functionalities. Use suitable Computer Vision techniques for face recognition and identifying objects. The product should be able to detect each of the mentioned unfair means used by the student. Students are supposed to deploy the model using a website or android application.

Speech to Sign Language Conversion

AI for Community initiative. Help the hearing impaired. Participants are requested to train an AI model that converts text from videos/presentations to sign language.If you are using any pre-trained model then you are supposed to fine tune it once instead of directly importing the model using an api call.

Voice Based Travel Booking (Eg. Alexa Skill)

The System will allow users to book a hotel ticket using voice commands. The system will ask travel details to the user like origin, destination, travel date, number of guests, etc. The user will answer the queries and based on this he will get hotel suggestions(on other channels also like email/whatsapp). The user will select a hotel and further enter his contact details like phone number, email address, etc. The user will receive a payment link on his email address. (You may provide a dummy link of upi payment) After successful payment he will be informed about the booking status whether it is booked or failed. You can use APIs for the given tasks The Machine Learning part consists of converting the voice commands to text and displaying them on screen. Students are not supposed to use APIs for these purpose but use NLP techniques to create model The product has to be deployed on web/app Assume that the user will complete the payment in 30 seconds

Text Classification using ML and AI

Text Classification is the task of assigning a sentence or document an appropriate category. The categories depend on the chosen dataset and can range from topics. Text Classification problems include emotion classification, news classification, citation intent classification, among others. It can be used for various purposes like spam filtering, sentiment analysis, and content moderation. For this problem participants are challenged to build a text classification system that can classify a given new headline in one or more categories. Students are needed to develop a product that can search for recent headlines from the web related to an incident/person/event given by user and extract the most recent one Students are supposed to scrap the most recent website and extract the headline from it. Students are needed to use suitable NLP/ML/DL techniques to classify it into various categories and display the output. Students are also needed to apply sentiment analysis on the headlines and classify them as positive, negative or neutral Students should not use a pre-trained model directly for sentiment analysis but should also fine tune it themselves before using it in their product. The product must provide a user interface that allows users to give an input, view the resulting headline and get the headline category. The user interface should be easy to use and understand and should include features such as auto search complete.

Build a device that can measure the health of cows and check the quality of milk

When milk is brought by farmers or cattle-farm people from their cattle farm to the dairy collection center, there are chances that it gets spoiled. They do not get money for that. Sometimes they also do some mixing and adulteration and after that so many problems occur. If we can get the important milk parameters from cattle farm to dairy collection center then we can have a complete record of all farmers bringing milk to collection center. Here we must know the health of animals, their health parameters as well as milk parameters e.g fat and related milk parameters. Make a project which can determine suitable parameters at both the farm and Dairy collection to check the quality of milk.

Build an IOT-based dustbin that can send the status of the dustbin to the webpage.

In the present day scenario, many times we see that the garbage bins or Dustbins placed at public places in the cities are overflowing due to an increase in the waste every day. It creates an unhygienic condition for the people and creates a bad smell around the surroundings that leads to the spread of some deadly diseases & human illness. Design an "IoT Based Waste Management Model for Smart Cities " which can monitor real-time data of that garbage collection Bin and show that on the respective Website/App. NOTE: All the garbage bins seen on the platform should have respective indicators such as, It should be Red if it is overflowing, Yellow for partially filled and Green for empty.

Create a device that can detect a driver's sleepy eyes and send an alert to the driver while also slowing down the vehicle.

A major cause of road accidents around the globe is due to the driver being ignorant or sleepy. For this problem, build a device that can detect the sleepy eyes of the driver. If the driver is detected to be sleepy ,then the wearable device should alert the driver through vibrations and the speed of the vehicle should be slowed automatically to prevent any mishap. NOTE 1 : You can make any wearable device like a neckband or a wristband. NOTE 2 : You can demonstrate the speed control by showing any small scale vehicle which uses motors.

Create a smart wearable device that can be used by dumb people for basic day to day communication

A major problem faced by dumb people is that they lack basic communication. For this problem build a wearable device that can translate and send messages in the form of Morse code. NOTE 1: The input should be a touch based response by the index finger and the thumb. NOTE 2 : The output should be a speech signal of the converted Morse Code through any speaker.

Build a robot that is able to detect the fire and extinguish it by itself.

Nowadays , It is an essential safety measure for large scale buildings to be equipped with a Fire Safety Sprinkler System. As far as small scale structures such as houses, shops are not well equipped and are always at a risk of Fire Hazard. For this problem, build a smart Robot that can be used for any fire incident at any particular area. The Robot should navigate automatically to the area of fire and use necessary measures to eradicate it. NOTE 1: For testing purposes, there should be multiple sensors which are to be placed at various areas where the robot could navigate. NOTE 2: The robot should extinguish fire using carbon dioxide or water.
