2nd Best Startup - American University of Beirut- Maroon Semaan Faculty of Engineering and Architecture
I was accepted to be a part of the American University of Beirut Youth Summer Program with 25% acceptance rate. The program was from July 1 to July 19 under the theme “Engineering for Good: Big Data and Artificial Intelligence”. Various skills were developed from this workshop from programming using python, 3D designing and printing, Arduino, Photoshop, and Natural language Processing(NLP) till introducing me to entrepreneurship skills via lectures and hands-on projects . My team and I came up with an artificial judge Python program which implements AI technologies and can come up with final statements (guilty/ not guilty).
This program focused on three main pillars of technology, entrepreneurship, and social good. As a part of it, I was introduced to new concepts of Arduino developing, coding, leadership, and entrepreneurial skills. My team was able to to secure the first place by developing an interface in which Arduinos are used to track and warn ambulances about how crowded a hospital is and reroutes it to the nearest uncrowded hospital.
