Yantra Learning under the umbrella of Yantra 7.0 is the second edition of Yantra Learning with the theme of Agricultural Disaster Response and Medical Assistive Technology. It is a software competition where programmers develop software project that can make the Yantra (machine) learn from external environments, past data and patterns to take a decision as per the current situation. The theme of Yantra Learning is to design and develop algorithms and application whether it be web or mobile that can predict and alert about the possibility of upcoming natural disaster using present and past data in order to improve the productivity of Farmers or an application that assist medical professionals for diagnosis, treatment queries and suggestion.
Yantra means Machine so this competition will be focused to develop some algorithm to solve the problem where a machine will become smart. The algorithm is the main innovation in the challenge, and to approach it any programming language or software tools is permitted. Development of app or PC software will be the main target and the technical challenge will be in making the Yantra (machine) learn from external environments, past data and patterns to take a decision as per the current situation.
Overall, the main challenge is to come up with theme basis algorithm that can teach machine and upgrade its performance based on the past and/or present records.
