AI for Agriculture Hackathon by MyGov, Google and HUL

Closing Date: 17 Mar 2021 (Check Contest Website)

About AI for Agriculture Hackathon:

AI for Agriculture Hackathon is organized as a partnership with MyGov, Hindustan Unilever Limited(HUL) and Google. The World Water Day is celebrated around the world on March 22 each year. In this Occasion MyGov, Google and HUL want to partner with the ideators to bring AI solutions to the Agriculture field.


Problem Statement:

80% of India's fresh water is used in agriculture. Water is an integral part of India's food security and improving the efficiency of its use is essential. The aim of this event is to catalyze solutions that can reduce the use of inputs (especially water) and transform agricultural yields. Participants will develop ideas and build prototypes to solve the main challenges farmers face in water use and sustainability. In addition to Insights from HUL and hardware and technical support from Google, selected attendees will receive ongoing support through partnerships, technical advice, funding and market testing until launch.


Areas of intervention / possible challenges to be resolved for:

  • Inputs (wasted water), the market (yield sales) and crops (which crops to grow with what water consumption).

  • Participants must choose a problem statement given by experts (or their own problem statement related to water sustainability)

  • Google hardware will be shipped to selected participants for prototyping solutions

  • Technical advice and support from Google, regardless of participants' experience and level of AI expertise

  • A dedicated Google contact point (POC) for online assistance to participants during the 3 days

  • Dedicated office hours and networking opportunities with agricultural experts and the Google technical team

  • Long-term partnership and access to resources and funding to deploy hackathon prototypes in the field

3-Day Virtual Hackathon:

The program begins with a 3-day virtual workshop from March 22 to 24. 2021. The workshop brings Google Tech to startups and agribusinesses to brainstorm and prototype to solve the key challenges farmers face today in water use and efficiency.

  • A 3- Day virtual workshop wherein Subject Matter Experts (SME) will develop problem statements

  • Agri startups/ corporations shall take up the problem statements or suggest their own and come up with AI led Agri solutions

  • Participants shall be provided with the infrastructure and support for solutions to be built along with AI tools and platforms, including:

  • TensorFlow

  • Coral

  • Jacquard

  • Google Cloud

  • By the end the hackathon, we expect to have multiple prototypes to take forward and roll out to the field to test and further develop them
