Programs

We have identified the following area of interest and are inviting applications for our
research cohort program:

1. Realtime tracking of objects of interest in live streaming.

2. Intelligent traffic signal system.

3. Smart Document Compliance Model.

4. Anomaly Detection and Incident modelling in a Cloud Environment.

5. Crop Health Analyzer.

6. Covid – 19 Tracker/ Detector.

7. Medical Diagnostic Tool.

Who is it for?

We are inviting scientists, analysts, coders, tinkerers, students, basically anyone with the
passion and curiosity to explore these areas. 

Provisions

To make things interesting, for mentors, we are happy to:

● Provide everything you need to conduct your research, including infrastructure,
mentorship, guidance. We have industry experts who will guide you through your
problem.
● Provide assistance from our partner companies to see your idea from conception
to completion.

For students who want to be a part of this journey, we will provide:

● A chance to work on a real world problem.
● Assistance in publishing your work in major scientific journals.
● Certificate of Participation and a Letter of Appreciation.
● Internship Opportunities from Partnership Companies.

Workshops and Training

For Mentors

For mentors, we believe that the best way to learn a subject is by teaching it. And if you can teach a human brain, you can definitely teach an artificial one. Teaching Artificial Intelligence can be tricky, and HRCP provides the following in this regard:

● Access to a world class research facility in Mehdipatnam, Hyderabad.

● Standardized online teaching and lecture delivery structure.

● Teaching a subject via a real world problem.

● Learning by teaching approach.

● Workshops on Machine Learning.

We start with an orientation session of one week in which we expect you to attend our workshops. And from next week, we expect you to conduct your own workshops with your team. We will be supporting you in every way possible, so you have nothing to worry about.

For Students

For students, we believe that learning by doing is far more efficient than first learn and then do approach. So we put you straight in a group working on a problem. You know something, you do it. You don’t know something, either ask us or learn by yourself, and then do it. We provide the following to assist you in your endeavor:

● Access to a world class research facility in Mehdipatnam, Hyderabad.

● Open access to all mentors and industry experts involved in our program.

● Workshop on demand facility.

● Supervised work on cutting edge technologies.

After your orientation session, you will be drafted in a team which is working on something cool. We will explain everything, one-on-one if we have to, but we will make sure that you get it. After that, pick a problem and solve it. Each area of interest that we have has hundreds of them.

Execution

For Mentors

Hexart.In Research Cohort Program constitutes of the following steps:

● Proposal: In the attached proposal form, please explain your problem statement from our identified areas of interest. This should also include an expected timeframe for Proof of Concept Development.

● Team Formation: In accordance with your problem statement, we will create a team of other mentors/industry experts to support you in your problem. We will also assign students on this project. You can also create your own team. As a Team Lead, your responsibility will be the following:

    ○ Explaining your solution/idea to your fellow team members and ensuring their participation.

    ○ Ensuring the implementation of your solution to the best of your abilities

● Proof of Concept: In the discussed timeframe, you will have to submit a Proof of Concept for your problem. This PoC will then be evaluated by a panel of experts from our partner companies

● Prototype: Selected PoCs will be developed further into prototypes. You will get additional support from our partner companies.
