AllergyAlly a mobile app

 AI-powered allergy companion app that revolutionizes allergy management.

The mobile app was developed as part of submission to the Global AI Hackathon using the MIT app inventor platform by me and my teammate Viraj Marathe.

UPDATE: The Allergy Ally app secured the Honourable Mention Award at the Global AI Hackathon.

The World Allergy Organization estimates that 20–30% of the global population experiences some form of allergy.

Impact on Quality of Life by Allergies:

  • Missed days
  • Poor Sleep
  • Dietary Restrictions
  • Mental Health

Medical history remains a cornerstone in allergy diagnosis, guiding healthcare providers in making informed decisions and providing appropriate care to patients. And this app documents each and every allergic incident and provides detailed report for the healthcare providers with the help of AI. Existing solutions are not satisfactory and our mobile app Allergy ally acts as a companion to persons troubled by allergies.

Features of the app

  1. User profile creation
  2. Logging of allergic incidents via voice prompt
  3. Detailed logging of incidents with exhaustive list of symptoms and triggers with severity scale
  4. Capturing location information for cross checking with weather data for dust and pollen triggers in area
  5. Scanning of food and food labels to decipher allergens information
  6. Capturing pictures of allergic reactions and existing medications
  7. Visualisation of data in the form of detailed graphs.
  8. Summary of data on a calendar with the ability to select days of allergic reactions and seeing specific data.
  9. Integrating advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques,
  10. The app facilitates communication between users and healthcare providers by allowing users to share their symptom data, allergy profile, and tracking history in a detailed PDF with their doctors. This streamlined communication enables doctors to make more accurate diagnoses on the allergy and take the measures required.

The app collects detailed data

1. Profile Fields:

The details of the app can be seen in this presentation

The smart part of the app are powered by ChatGPT and a blog post on how we have created prompts to have AI interpret data is here

To test the app we needed a large dataset with different patient profiles and we managed to create datasets via python code and a blog post on the dataset and python code is

My Learnings from FTC

In my journey, in FTC I learned many things and came across many different challenges. I had to overcome all of these challenges and I learnt a lot in the process.  One of the major things that I learnt was 3d designing. Before I had some minor knowledge of using Fusion 360 but I learnt a lot more during this competition. As the only 3d Designer in the team I had to design many of the major parts we needed for the competition. Here are a few of the things that I designed. Battery Holder To hold the battery to our robot, we needed a holder to store it and help us attach it to the robot. To start, I took the battery measurements by the scale and created a sketch to be the base, then extruded the walls and the base. I made a slot for the wire of the battery to be able to come out.  With the rough design of the battery holder down, I started the refinement of the build and filleted down all the sharp edges. However, if I were to re-design this part, I could count this step as a mistake as

Brahma of Goa

Over the last few weeks, as a part of my participation in the E-Yantra Virtual Museum competition, I have been on a journey to discover the history of one statue and its entire story. I have scoured the internet searching for leads, visited temples, talked to priests and gone around Goa to find out about this one statue. This statue is a sculpture of Brahma, a Hindu god. It is chiselled black stone and originates in the Kadamba era (12th century). It is decorated with many details, stands tall, and is bearded with Kadamba-style designs. The figure carries a ladle in its upper right Hand, The Vedas in its upper left hand. Kamandal in its lower left hand and chanting beads in its lower right hand.  Now let me walk you through my story about this statue. First, I saw images of the statue and then tried searching for information on it online. I found a few excellent articles, but those still wouldn’t give the full details. After a lot of scouring around the internet, I found one article w
