Lalitpur (Uttar Pradesh), December 1 : A 14-year old girl from Lalitpur has been ranked among the top twenty in the country and the only one from Uttar Pradesh at the recent award ceremony and exhibition of artificial intelligence-based projects.Nandini Kushwaha was awarded for her smart data-based AI tool, which identifies the best crop for soil by analysing its nutritional components.
The national programme for government schools called ‘ResponsibleAI for youth’ has envisioned the entire initiative.It was jointly designed and conceived by the national electronic government division, ministry of information technology, government in India, and Intel India.
Nandini, a resident in Patha village, Lalitpur district is a student at Class 9 Government Girls Inter College (GGIC).
Prakash Bhushan Mishra, her mathematics teacher, inspired her to create the website that was created under the project ‘ResponsibleAI for youth’.
She was in Class 8 at the upper primary school in her village at that time.
Nandani took online classes via her mobile phone and displayed her talent.
She was later gifted a laptop from Intel India, which further motivated her.
Nandini was aware of the daily problems associated with poor soil quality and skewed crop production.She named her project ‘Mitti Ko Jano, Fasal Pehchano’.
Nandini explained to reporters that the model is a smart data-based AI tool which identifies the best crop for soil by analysing its nutritional components.
This model can be used to detect soil and help farmers make informed decisions.
She explained that “With the help my AI project, data are retrieved from mud for its nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content, temperature, humidity content PH value, rainfall, and temperature.” These data allow us to predict the best crop choice for optimal production.This is a problem that I have seen for many years.
Anil Kumar Pandey, chief development officer (CDO), Lalitpur, said that it was an inspiring story for all students in the district and the state.We will not only celebrate her arrival, but will also set an example for other students.”
Jamuna Prasad Kushwaha is her father and a farmer.He has no idea what his daughter has accomplished.
He said, “I know she’s won a big award and that I am thankful to God.”
