iTNT Hackathon Topics

Advanced Personalized Healthcare Using AI and IoT

Problem Statement: Create an AI and IoT-based public health system that can analyze large-scale health data to identify trends, predict outbreaks, and personalize public health interventions.

Objective: Enhance public health response by integrating data from various sources, using AI for predictive modeling, and providing tailored health recommendations and interventions.

AI and IOT

Smart Manufacturing with AI-Driven Predictive Maintenance

Problem Statement: Develop an AI and IoT-enabled smart manufacturing system that optimizes production processes and implements predictive maintenance for industrial equipment

Objective: Increase operational efficiency, reduce downtime, and extend the lifespan of machinery by using AI to predict failures and schedule maintenance proactively.

AI and IOT

AI and IoT for Real-Time Data Analysis and Decision Making

Problem Statement: Develop a system that integrates AI and IoT to collect, analyze, and act on real-time data from various sources across industries

Objective: Enhance decision-making processes across multiple sectors by providing timely and actionable insights based on real-time data analysis

AI and IOT

Smart Home/Village/City Automation for Energy Efficiency

Problem Statement: Design a simple yet effective IoT-based system that enhances energy efficiency in homes/Village/City by automating appliance usage and monitoring energy consumption.

Objective: Create a user-friendly system that reduces energy waste and optimizes appliance usage based on real-time data

AI and IOT

Resource Consumption Reduction

Problem Statement: Excessive use of resources like water, energy, and raw materials leads to environmental degradation.

Solution: IoT sensors can monitor resource usage across operations (e.g., industrial processes, buildings). AI analyzes this data to identify areas of waste and suggests optimization strategies. This can lead to reduced water usage, lower energy consumption, and minimized material waste.

AI and IOT

Pollution Monitoring and Control

Problem Statement: Air and water pollution pose significant environmental and health risks.

Solution: IoT sensors can be deployed in factories, vehicles, and agricultural settings to monitor air and water quality in real-time. AI can analyze sensor data to identify pollution sources, predict emission trends, and trigger alerts for corrective actions.

AI and IOT

Sustainable Waste Management

Problem Statement: Inefficient waste management practices lead to overflowing landfills and environmental contamination.

Solution: IoT sensors can track waste levels in bins and compactors. AI can analyze data to predict waste generation, optimize collection routes, and suggest strategies for waste reduction, recycling, and composting.

AI and IOT

Supply Chain Transparency and Efficiency

Problem Statement: Lack of transparency in supply chains can lead to unethical sourcing practices and environmental damage (e.g., deforestation).

Solution: IoT sensors can be integrated throughout the supply chain (e.g., on raw materials, finished products). AI can analyze data to track product provenance, identify potential sustainability risks (e.g., labor abuses), and optimize logistics for reduced transportation emissions.

AI and IOT

Circular Economy Practices

Problem Statement: Linear "take-make-dispose" models contribute to resource depletion and waste generation.

Solution: AI can analyze product lifecycle data to identify opportunities for product design with repairability and recyclability in mind. Additionally, AI can optimize reverse logistics for efficient product return, refurbishment, and re-entry into the market.
