Meet Women Leading The Artificial Intelligence Based-Startups In India

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is bound to impact society in numerous ways but when and where this influence will be felt can’t be foretold. However, one thing is certain that AI will disrupt conventional work models.

AI is supporting in smashing norms too. Like every other discipline, women in technology also, found it difficult to make a name for themselves in an industry dominated by men. But space is evolving. Now, we have women who aren’t just operating staff positions in big technology start-ups but are creating them, from discovery to final implementation.

Here are some women who are killing it in the AI industry:

Aditi Avasthi’s passion for developing education in India is apparent from the point that students who have adopted Embibe’s programs have gone on to accomplish exceptional results in undesirable circumstances.

Embibe’s pilot plan was with the tribal students of Rajasthan who didn’t know how to work on computers before Embibe’s mediation. The students were self-sufficient and also went on to answer the most competing pre-engineering and pre-medical examinations in India.

Niramai in 2017 raised seed funding of $1 million from Pi Ventures and had just begun clinical trials. Today, the team holds nine U.S. patents and one Canadian patent. The start-up is the only Indian company recorded in the 2019 group of AI 100 Start-ups in the World by global business data intelligence platform C.B. Insights.

Embibe, a customised platform, is intended to address education and life outcomes for students. Aditi Avasthi was presented ‘Accenture Vaahini Innovator of The Year’ at Economic Times Prime Women Leadership Awards 2019.

IFFCO Tokio General Insurance provides insurance ranging from office, motor, health, home, accident and travel. In the motor insurance category, the company ranks third among all private players. However, as many as 30 percent of its customers were not satisfied by the amount assessed by the claim officers.

“To overcome this issue, we supplemented our model that involved claim officers with another model wherein we tied up with an agency, which in turn tied up with motor garages. In case of any damage to the vehicle, a customer could upload the photographs from the spot directly from our mobile app. Upon receiving the photographs, the garage provided the repair estimate. While this proved to be effective, its impact was limited because this model was not pan-India,” Seema Gaur said to the Economic Times.
