MOONSHOT PROJECTS

Building Projects and Initiatives nobody has done before.

 

I pitched all of these ideas before we built it out and was responsible for doing Market Survey, hiring people for the projects, laying down the product roadmap, writing code and building the product and eventually evangelizing the products and doing Customer Validation !

Project FiB
Stop living a lie

  • Won Grinspoon Entrepreneurial Concept Award 2017 

  • Why its a Moonshot? We were the first people to innovate in the field of media for being able to build a fully functional MVP to detect Fake News through AI and Machine Learning. I worked on building the Fake News detection Algorithm while my teammates worked on building the Chrome extension and integrating my Algorithm to the Chrome extension.

  • Our team talked to various company CEOs like CEO of Craiglist regarding collaborations and the response was immense. Today we are featured on several books, research papers, resource at top universities on how to detect Fake News. 

Text to VR 
Let your imagination come to life
This project "VR Storytellers"  was built at the World's largest VR-AR Hackathon - Virtually Reality Hackathon at the MIT Media Lab. The interface converts text (stories) in real time to Virtual Reality Experience (mapping keywords and its descriptions to objects in unity) coupled with a Background score based on the mood of the story.

  • Why its moonshot? Nobody else has built this yet. When I pitched the idea at the Hackathon, a mentor told me to discard it since its thesis level. Well, we built it in 24 hours and even got an invite to a Film Festival.
  • Awards
  • MIT Media Lab Up and Coming Hackers and Qualcomm's Most Refined Mobile VR Experience Award
HelpHer/LawBot
Low cost Legal help and job opportunities for Acid Attacks, Sexual or domestic abuse victims through AI
  • Background: I created the project around the painpoint of targetting women in developing countries like India who arent necessarily equipped with education, resources or awareness of help available and go through vile crimes like Acid Attacks and domestic violence. It is basically an app which contains a chatbot which uses Artificial Intelligence to understand the case entered by the user and tries to understand its law implications and classifies the case into domestic violence, rape, acid attacks or none. Further it talks about laws pertaining to the particular crime and provides the user with the nearest law and enforcement places like Police Stations and Lawyers to report it. In the future iterations of the app, a platform for recruitement and training of these individuals to find jobs would be done.

  • This project received recognition in the form of Project Lawbot at Techcrunch Disrupt. We received the honor of Techcrunch Disrupt Qualifiers and free tickets to Techcrunch Disrupt NYC 2017.

  • Why its Moonshot? There is no lowcost solution out there in the market to raise awareness for laws for such cases, neither are there any dedicated websites to help them rehabilitate and find jobs or opportunities.
