Yantra Learning

Yantra Learning is one of the new program added this year under the umbrella of Yantra. It is a software competition where programmers develop software project focusing on agriculture theme. It is an open Machine Learning competition to develop algorithms and software that can make the Yantra (machine) learn from external environment’s past data and patterns to take decision for the current situation.

The algorithm is the main innovation in this challenge, and to approach it any programming language or software tools is permitted. Other challenge will be to make a platform where the algorithm can get its implementation. Platform can be in form of External Displays, Mobile or PC apps.

The overall project should have positive impact on the productivity of farmers.There will be seminar on Yantra Learning before the competition.
