Techno NJR students bring prestige to Udaipur once again by winning the 1st Runner-Up prize of Rs. 1 lakh in #OpenGovDataHack, a national level competition held in New Delhi on 31st October. The event was organized by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Law & Justice.
The prize to Techno NJR team was given by Hon’ble minister Sh. Ravi Shanker Prasad. First prize was won by the team from VIT and second Prize by Techno NJR team and third by IIT, Patna.
Techno NJR team consisting of Tathagat, Vedant, Bhavya, Mohit & Jeevika and mentored by Dr. Jitendra Shreemali created Datacop Platform using data available with National Crime Records Bureau.
What is Datacop Platform:
The Datacop platform is an attempt to empower the vulnerable sections of society through the use of technology. With increased attention on crimes against women, the team has presented a technology solution to prevent major crimes against women. Going forward this system can be used to prevent all weaker sections of the society, be these, women, older generation or children.
The analysis shows that coastal states have consistently witnessed the highest cases of immoral trafficking of women. Further, correlation analysis identifies the filling up of women SI equivalent rank vacancies as the best solution to the problem since the correlation between both these factors is close to 80%. Similarly, analysis of rape data provides insights into the profile of likely rapists as well as their family background.
As Udaipur is among the select smart cities, this can help make Udaipur a safer place for tourists as well as the residents. Successful deployment at Udaipur would enable other leading cities in the country to consider this as a potential solution to their crime-related challenges.
