Lightning Talk

The four lightning talks in this session are examples of technology applications, where simple and cost-effective methods have been used to positively impact key areas of our society – agriculture, education, health – in different ways. These include a smart data-based predictive solution for helping small-scale farmers, an Uber-like application to make volunteering flexible and easy, a community enablement initiative that addresses education problems for migrant labourers’ children and another designed to reduce childrens’ susceptibility to diseases through timely vaccination reminders and follow-ups.
