THEMES

GOVERNANACE

In this theme, we expect the participants to develop any innovative solution that helps in developing the country in any political aspect.

Election monitoring system, digital traffic system, monitoring of public transport, reducing crime rates, politics-safe life, improving economics and reducing bribery in various government platforms.


AR/VR IN EDUCATION

Using these reality technologies, devise a system to support proficient education and improve a student's understanding of his/her academic syllabus.

HEALTH CARE

1) With high population, and concentration of poverty, low health status and diseases. There is a dire need to focus specifically on keeping track and monitoring a user's health.
Aim to improve the health status of a common man. You are expected to come up with innovative solutions to help people live the healthy lifestyle.

OR

2) People with disabilities should not be separated from the society simply because they’re less fortunate. Freedom of mobility is one of the greatest things we as humans can enjoy, but sadly some of us have been robbed of this possibility. AI is a powerful tool to harness, so put it to work where it can help those in need and assist them in their day to day activities; like day planning and execution, clinic visits, purchases and entertainment.

DISASTER MANAGEMENT

Ever felt despondent when you see the news of some tragic natural disaster happened in your locality, country or across the world? This is your chance to hack your community of all such problems.

Help the residents affected by a calamity in field of communication, material transportation, accessibility to resources, etc to interact with the victim, other citizens in the vicinity and the disaster relief committee.

AGRICULTURE

Transparency is at the forefront, there is no clarity in prices and quality standards that increases the farmer’s cost and risk in farming. In this track we expect hackers to create a technological platform for handling big input supplies and indicates reliability and track availability. Agriculture transport system should be reliable and organised .With a aim to optimise it we expect hackers to come up with ideas for efficient logistics system for storage optimisation or a travel booking guide for farmers.

RURAL INNOVATION

In a country like India, we see numerous slum settlements in every city. The growing population and poverty are just making it worse. Aim to establish a system to support the governing of the slum residents, keeping a track of their necessities, finding an ideal accomadation system and vacancies, availing food and water supply, in short - anything to improve the living conditions.
