  • Context:
    Telangana AI Mission (T-AIM) has been established by the Government of Telangana State under the aegis of ‘2020 Year of AI’, with a vision to launch Telangana as a global hub for Artificial Intelligence and foster social innovation.

    Agriculture is a key area of focus for the state. With the intention of sourcing best in class AI solutions in the field of agriculture, T-AIM is launching Innovation Factory. It is a series of Grand Challenges wherein participants will compete to develop innovative AI Solutions for specific use-cases in Agriculture.


    Use Case :

    Precision Farming for improving Yield

    Background:
    Farming is a multistage process in which majorly there are 3 growth stages. Across these stages, farmers use, depending on the natural state of climate variables, resources such as water, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides. The farm output is yield which is dependent on these underlying variables. Using these variables, predicting the historical yield through an ML model could give us statistical relationships between variables that affect the yield of a particular crop.

    Selected Crops:
    • Maize
    • Groundnut
    • Bengal Gram

    Objectives:
    • Identify variable(s) in accordance with their relevant influence on crops yield
    • Recommend best practices to maximize the yield for a particular crop
    • Build a Machine-Learning model to predict yield


    This is an opportunity for innovators to:
    • Assist the Government of Telangana in helping farmers increase their income by working on three selected use-cases
    • Showcase their AI solution development capabilities at a larger scale
    • Avail an opportunity to implement a pilot within the State of Telangana, with mentorship support from Government of Telangana entities
    • Win a prize of INR Four Lakhs (Winner) and INR Two Lakhs (Runner-up), per-use-case (Prize includes cash + AWS credits)



    Eligibility Criteria:
    • This challenge is open for Start-ups/Institutions operating within India
