Team Name: Capiche

IDEAS Project Pitch: The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India has launched a new MOOC’s initiative called Swayam Prabha that telecasts free academic material for millions of underprividelgents students in India via satellite television. Through in-person meetings with the leaders of the initiative in New Delhi, India, our team has identified problems faced by its students and administrators. As a response, we have built Capiche, a discussion platform for students in India powered by Artificial Intelligence. Capiche provides Swayam Prabha detailed engagement analytics to evaluate student learning and aims to create an automatic Q&A platform where any student can have his/her question answered instantly. We have our first pilot slated for early February and request for support through the IDEAS challenge to deploy our product more widely.
