Intel announced six student groups and three educators as the winners at Intel’s AI Global Impact Festival.
In a statement, the yearly event brings together upcoming engineers, future developers, decision-makers, and researchers who aim to use artificial intelligence (AI) to tackle real-world problems.
“I’m constantly amazed by the perceptive young technologists who understand the potential AI to be a force for good. I am excited to celebrate this year’s innovative winners. The success of the technology of tomorrow relies on them, as they embody the Intel purpose to improve life of every person on the plant,” Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said.
The following students were recognised as AI Impact Creator Global Award winners:
- BhashaX Code Summarizer, India – Krish Yadav: A AI-based paradigm that enables programmers to understand code more readily in their local language is intended to increase accessibility to programming.
- CS-M Tool, Thailand – Tanapat Charunworphan, Noppawite Chunram, Matt Tanthai Cosh: AI technology that enables anyone to have a regular heart checkup, CAR, which stands for Checkup using AI analysis, Awareness of relevant heart checkup results, and Rapid referral to neighbouring hospitals.
- Vision System Powered by AI for the Visually Impaired, China – Jasmine Liu: A curved text recognition system that makes it simpler for those with vision impairments to read objects like packaging labels and road signs that are challenging to read owing to distortion and curvature.
- Indoor Industrial Safety Program, United States – Serr Brown, Dina Marie Stager, Ryan Galbraith: Even without a GPS connection, this application uses AI and digital mapping for autonomous environment input to secure a safer workplace in indoor industrial situations.
- Nighthawk, China – Libenhua Cai, Weiyu Chen, Yufei Zhao: Full-color video imaging system that uses computer vision and deep learning techniques to illuminate images naturally in very low-light conditions and return imaging effects to normal light.
- Synthetic Data Generator, India – Sayash Raaj: A project that protects the privacy of people’s personal data by enabling researchers to use an artificially created dataset with the same characteristics as the original data. This project would make it easier to implement software data-based solutions in situations like the COVID-19 pandemic that would otherwise encounter difficulties due to data sensitivity or unavailability.
Additionally, Intel named the following three educators as the world’s top winners in the AI Impact Shaper Category for their innovative uses of AI in the classroom: Haobin Zhu from China, India’s Ambika Saxena, and Singapore’s Willoughby Lee.
According to Intel, AI has the potential to have an impact on all facets of people’s lives, particularly as digitalisation continues to grow. In particular, for the next generation of technologists and potential developers, Intel feels that demystifying and democratising AI technology is vital to promote digital preparedness. The AI Global Impact Festival offers opportunities and venues for discussing, showcasing, and honouring the significance of AI developments.
Intel has pledged to increase digital readiness to 30 million individuals in 30,000 organisations across 30 nations. The event highlights Intel’s commitment to leveraging technology as a force for good and its 2030 Goals, including making technology truly inclusive and boosting digital readiness worldwide.
