5 AI Innovations by Indians Using Artificial Intelligence For Good

Artificial Intelligence can provide solutions for many problems, from fixing potholes to keeping you warm. IT can even help make healthcare more accessible in rural areas. 

Here are five such innovations by Indians that are solving a multitude of problems: 

  1. Using AI to fix potholes

When Dipen Babariya encountered a road full of potholes, he decided to develop an AI-based software that examines road health. RoadMetrics also generates reports and helps municipalities and private entities fix roads.

The Bengaluru-based startup has already analysed over 50,000 kms of roads in India

  1. Using AI to keep soldiers warm

Engineers Neel Panchal and Khushboo Patel have built an AI-powered smart jacket made of graphene to help armed forces personnel stay warm and comfortable even in the harshest of climates.

  1. Using AI to provide good healthcare in rural areas

Dr (Maj) Satish Somayya Jeevannavar launched AiSteth, a digital stethoscope that records and analyses patient heart sounds that can be interpreted by professionals across cities, in a bid to provide affordable rural healthcare.

  1. Using AI to protect soil

Jaisimha Rao’s AI-powered spot spray robots selectively provide cover only to the plants, thereby protecting the soil from excessive chemical damage. So far, more than 500 farmers in Maharashtra and Karnataka have adopted the technology.

  1. Using AI to regain mobility

John Ignatius Kujur’s AI-powered Exoskeleton uses sensor-based feedback & real-time monitoring to help the disabled gradually regain mobility. 

“It essentially acts as a mobility device for the wearer and assists in recovering the gait pattern of the person naturally, besides assisting them in the rehabilitation process. It will also help them become self-reliant, independent, and possibly increase their chances at obtaining employment,” claims Kujur.
