IIIT-H students' project “Aarogyam”, a software enabled tool for patient diagnosis, has been awarded the first prize at the VNR VJIET, Hyderabad organized national level techno symposium, on February 16, 2011.

The four-person team, which worked under the guidance of Dr. Shubhajit Roy Chowdhury, from Center for VLSI & Embedded Systems Technologies (CVEST), consisted of MV Kaushik, Sravan Bagalkote, Rajeshuni Rajeev and Sai Krishna Srirampur, all from the B Tech (CSE), second-year. The patient diagnosis tool was designed and developed as part of the SSAD project.

Aarogyam takes clinical symptoms and other details – like age, gender, duration, severity, etc. – of the patient as input, applies machine intelligence techniques, and tells the possible set of diseases.

“We are planning to add regional language processing and speech recognition features to the tool so that the system can be used at rural kiosks by semi-literate people too,” Dr. Shubhajit said explaining the future plans for Aarogyam.

Recently, under Dr. Shubhajit's guidance, IIIT-H's bachelor's students of ECE won the top 4 place at the Finals of the World Embedded Systems Contest 2010 (WESC 2010). The team showcased its work, the “Red Eye”, a laser technology based virtual gaming environment, in the finals at Seoul, South Korea, in November last year.
