MY DREAM IS TO CHANGE THE WORLD USING TECHNOLOGY, TO MAKE IT BETTER FOR PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, IN EVERY CLASS OF LIFE.
I WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
More than 253 million people suffer from blindness or visual impairment worldwide, and in most circumstances, they require the assistance of others to guide them through life. In order to help them navigate the world, VocalEyes was created. It is an app that uses a proprietary machine learning algorithm to help identify objects, text, scenes, and faces in their daily lives. Use the simple UI to take a picture and listen to what the camera sees.
More than 700 million people are suffer from chronic undernourishment. The underlying problems are crop diseases and ailments, which usually wipe out 30-50% of an area’s harvest, deeming it inedible. PlantumAI is an app that is able to detect, diagnose, and provide treatment options for plant diseases straight from your phone.
I started an MIT Launch Club at my school, to help kids delve into the deep world of entrepreneurship. Together, every week, we teach each other and learn the skills to become successful entrepreneurs. We have successfully started two companies, companies that will help students like us all around the world.
THE PERFECT RECIPE FOR FOOD
Almost 11% of the entire globe is used for farming, but (coincidentally) 11% percent of the world's people still do not have enough to eat. The current methods for farming are inefficient and wasteful, which is why a group of students, including me, is working to help provide food for people everywhere. Our food computer uses the precise amount of water, nutrients, and light, to create a 'recipe' to grow different crops with as few ingredients as possible. We hope to help people all over the world struggling with starvation by providing an efficient way for them to grow their own food.
DATA OUTSPEEDS EARTHQUAKEs
Every year earthquakes kill thousands of people, and injure thousands more. To help alert people in less fortunate areas to upcoming seismic events, I developed TremorScan.TremorScan takes advantage of the internal accelerometer as well as a specialized server to process information. By alerting users to earthquakes far before they reach them, many lives can be saved.
A BEAUTIFUL way of showing ugly air
Every day we breathe in 11,000 liters of air, and if this air contains harmful elements, it will damage our bodies for many years. That is why I, along with a group of great entrepreneurs, created Air Flower. Air Flower is a device that informs people to the quality of the air they are breathing in a user friendly way. Depending on the quality of the air, Air Flower glows a different color, which can allow people with special needs (asthma, lung disease, etc.) as well as other people (pollen allergy) to let them determine to take precautions.
