3 Indians among 10 winners of the Google Android Developer Challenge
Three Indian developers have joined the top 10 winners of the Google Android Developer Challenge, which encourages developers around the world to build apps using machine learning.
The three applications developed by the Indians are AgroDoc, Leepi and UnoDogs.
Developed by Navneet Krishna from Kochi, AgroDoc helps farmers diagnose plant diseases and establish treatment plans.
Leepi, developed by Prince Patel of Bengaluru, helps students learn hand gestures and symbols for American Sign Language.
UnoDogs, which helps owners better support their pet’s well-being by providing personalized information and fitness programs, was developed by Chinmany Mishra from New Delhi.
Machine learning technology “is becoming more and more accessible to developers who build the apps you use every day,” said Jacob Lehrbaum, director of developer relations, Android.
To encourage more developers around the world to build apps using machine learning, Google launched the Android Developer Challenge last year.
“And after months of hard work, the 10 winners of the Android Developer Challenge are launching their apps today, ready to be tried,” Lehrbaum said in a statement.
An app called AgriFarm helps farmers detect plant diseases and prevent major damage to fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, corn and potatoes, which was developed in Baloutchisan.
“As Android continues to push the boundaries in emerging areas such as ML, 5G, foldable devices and more, we need your help to bring to life the consumer experiences that will define these new frontiers,” said Google said.
