Second Place: Team Esperer— BlinkALS
BlinkALS is the World’s first portable intelligent personal assistant for ALS patients that helps them communicate easily and effectively with their caretaker, reach out for help in case of emergency situations and save his thoughts to the personal notebook on Cloud. BlinkALS offers low-cost context-specific assistance for people suffering from ALS in low and middle-income countries. BlinkALS system comprises of a portable BlinkALS device plugged on to a spectacle frame and a BlinkALS mobile phone application (mobile is placed on a stand in front of the patient). BlinkALS mobile phone application allows the patient to communicate by displaying a sequential array of characters on the mobile-phone screen one-by-one along with the options to send the message, save the message to the personal notebook on Cloud or to ask for assistance. The BlinkALS device senses user input through the eye-blink gesture detection and sends it to the BlinkALS mobile phone application in real-time which in turn builds a string of characters. The mobile app then applies text-analysis algorithm on the character string to split it into words before speaking it out and sending it to the caretaker’s phone or before saving it to the patient’s personal notebook on Cloud.
Second Place: Team ReSeed — Project Decentralized Stock market for farmers
Synopsis: we are providing a platform for the common Man to invest in Farmers, each Farmer can set particular shares on his products so that the consumer can buy it before the seed is sown hence this transaction takes place in a blockchain ensuring legitimate transactions. The IoT devices on the farm will give holistic real-time progress of the crop growth which will be recorded on a permission distributed ledger, we have also developed an ML model to detect diseases in plants.
