As the AIPI summer program grew, so did the competition. After two weeks of intense hands-on learning, students were asked “How would you use AI to solve a problem in your community?” Students worked in teams and were paired with a PPG mentor to take on this challenge. With everything from solving food desert problems to creating an AI virtual therapist, our students brought their A games in solving these challenges. Judges were overwhelmingly impressed at the ideas presented when students had such little time to go from an open-ended question to a finished product. A total of 36 projects were completed from student groups from four states. Students presented in front of a panel of industry professionals who selected division winners. Those division winners moved on to re-present to the judges and which gave us our National AIPI Winner – OpenWaterAI. OpenWaterAI proposes that the majority of home insurance claims come through water damage in homes and they would like to use AI to predict when pipes will need to be replaced. This will decrease the amount of water damage that occurs. Judges felt their process and design was well thought out and explained. These students – Abril, Lucas, and Abboud – from multiple school districts worked together well and efficiently communicated their ideas. Congratulations to all of our teams for their hard work and creativity!
