– Artificial intelligence Air Mask –
Spurred by India’s persistent problem of air pollution, a team of students have developed artificial intelligence-powered anti-pollution face mask and a portable nebulizer. The products would help people with breathing ailments like asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases.
The innovation was developed by a team comprising Aakash Bhadana, Ishlok Vashishta, Vasu Kaushik, Dipesh Narwat, and Bharat Sundal. Now, they are all geared up to compete at the 2019 Imagine Cup World Championship next week hosted by Microsoft in Seattle, US. The annual competition conducted by Microsoft brings together students worldwide to help resolve some of the world’s toughest challenges.
Nine out of 10 in the world breathe polluted air, causing as many as seven million deaths every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Exposure to outdoor and indoor air pollution contributed to over 1.2 million deaths in India in 2017, according to a global study titled State of Global Air 2019.
Statistics like these and an experience living in the vicinity of New Delhi, which has one of the world’s worst air qualities, prompted the five students from Manav Rachna Institute of Research & Studies in Faridabad to use technology to tackle the problem.
