AI for Youth Uses Intel Technology to Solve Real-World Problems

In Bangalore, India, 10th grader Rahul Jaikrishna developed Cyber Detective – an artificial intelligence-based model that detects cyber bullying with an accuracy of up to 80%. Fourteen-year-old Jaikrishna was inspired after learning that “confession pages” created by school students – online diaries on social media where young people post confessions and secrets – often make teens easy targets for bullying. Jaikrisha didn’t learn AI programming in his everyday 10th grade syllabus. He picked it up via the Intel® AI for Youth program, which launched in 2019 in three countries and…
