Reflections: Innovation Challenge 2018

Having been an entrepreneur for close to 14 years of my life, I have seen people making it big then to suddenly go missing and those who persevere and make it to the end. And it all boils down to spotting trends or problems that requires solving or just standing the gap of needs or opportunities and making it a learning opportunity. True that it comes down to luck but also to determination and being relevant. So then what makes one relevant specially so when everything seem to be undercut by the word TECHNOLOGY, ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE AND MACHINE LEARNING. 
Some which we just try to belong to but know nothing of. 

Random Research
Artificial Intelligence (AI) are Human-like capabilities such as understanding natural language, speech, vision, and making inferences from knowledge that will extend software beyond the apps. Explains how it can be used to build smart apps that help organizations be more efficient and enrich people’s lives
create your own visualizations based on real data
Build, evaluate, and optimize machine learning models; including classification, regression, clustering, and recommendation.
intuitive approach to building complex models that help machines solve real-world problems with human-like intelligence

Okay I digress. 
So this all came about because....

I was honored to be invited as a reviewer for the projects in Innovation Challenge 2018 and it dawned on me how there are simple answers. and. we actually do not need to think too far to try and make an impact. We just need to see the existing problems and serve with our heart to want to make the world a better place.

The best ideas does not need to be BIG But instead those that make an impact in someone's life. So to share (hopefully) it was not meant to be a secret what I felt was the best idea. 

Problem: Elderly inability to reach for items on the shelves.
Solutions: To install a lever so the shelves can rotate - the elderly can do some physio exercise while spinning the lever and at the same time do things independently themselves.

AWESOME idea right?

Side note: I chanced upon this course outline that I found quite interesting
Shall go and research about it. $530 for this course. Also not very expensive but I better make sure I have some interest before registering
