About T-AIM

Telangana AI Mission (T-AIM), powered by NASSCOM has been established by the Government of Telangana with a vision to position Telangana as a global hub for Artificial Intelligence and foster social innovation. To encourage innovation within the AI community the ITE&C Department’s Emerging Technologies Wing and T-AIM actively conduct various initiatives throughout the year.

Objective of the challenge

To foster the entrepreneurial spirit amongst the students, T-AIM in collaboration with Wells Fargo is seeking applications for Academic Grand Challenge.

In this challenge, student teams from colleges across India are expected to build solutions for two areas. One involves building a futuristic, pure digital bank that integrates modern technologies to enable banking wherever and whenever. The other will require building a predictive analytics model to estimate if and when the financial markets will crash during this year.

The following Rewards are available
Grand Prize

A total sum of Rs. 1,00,000 will be awarded.

2nd Prize

A total sum of 50,000 will be awarded

3rd Prize

A total sum of 25,000 will be awarded

Top 20

Merchandise/Gift Vouchers will be awarded to the 17 other teams that made it to the top 20 positions

The Neo Bank
Use Case
The Neo Bank
Business Context
  • As future generation bank customers (Gen Z) use more and more digital services and products, it is important that banking should be available at their fingertips, and it should integrate well into their life.
  • It is imperative that pure digital banks can tap into these customers well. However, it is important for these banks to provide all services that offline banks provide. This requires the neo banks to be more open to integrations with various merchants and other institutions to provide services and products seamlessly. These banks also should innovate constantly on par with the latest technology trends like metaverse; block chain etc., to be relevant for Gen Z. This will also benefit the banks to save cost.
Desired Outcome

An innovative and viable solution using emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) to build a futuristic pure digital bank, which is highly available, integrates with modern technologies, and enables the customers to bank wherever, and whenever.

The Asset Bubble
Use Case
The Asset Bubble
Business Context

In a largely placid market for the most part in the prior years, we are staring at a stretch of considerable volatility in the financial markets. Now more than ever, investors need a good plan to move forward, and what good is the plan without the predictive power of analytics?

Desired Outcome
  • Help the investors by building a predictive analytics model or providing actionable analytical insights to this problem.
  • Output should be a confidence score on whether stock market will crash in 2022 or not and if it does find an approximate time interval in which this can possibly occur
