Hi! My name is Anmol Tukrel, and I am an incoming freshman at Stanford University. My projects focus on creating technology that has a positive impact in the areas of healthcare and education. My recent projects include:
- iDentifi, an iOS app that uses artificial intelligence to give visually impaired individuals more independence in doing daily tasks. It is capable of recognizing virtually any object, brand, text, handwriting and facial expression, and is available in 27 languages.
- Diabetes ID, an iOS app that enables diabetic teenagers to access hospital resources and helps them better manage their condition.
- CodeON, a program I started at my school to teach students in Gr, 6-8 HTML, CSS and Swift
- Tacocat Computers, a software company through which I created an algorithm for a personalized search engine that provides significantly more relevant search results.
Today iDentifi is being used in 105 nations, has processed more than 350,000 images, has been covered in mainstream media, and has been endorsed by local, national and international non-profits. It has also received numerous accolades including being selected as a TechCrunch Top Artificial Intelligence Story of 2016, along with Google AlphaGo, Facebook AI and 12 other stories that "describe the state of Artificial Intelligence in 2016".
It has also won a silver medal at the Canada Wide Science Fair, being a finalist for the 2017 Ontario Science Centre Weston Youth Innovation Award, winning a gold medal and the Best Project award at the York Region Science Fair, $20,500 in university scholarships, being named as a Royal National Institute for Blind People (United Kingdom) App of the Month for December, and being formally commended in the Ontario Provincial Legislature by the Minister of Research, Science and Innovation.
Diabetes ID is currently helping diabetic teenagers in 28 nations and 40 hospitals across Canada.
