Airtel App Development Contest 2016


Airtel App Development Contest

Airtel's App Development contest is a challenge to engineering students to design an original and innovative mobile app on any software platform broadly available to the public.


Participants

  • Airtel App Development Contest is open to all students pursuing a full-time engineering degree, irrespective of specializations
  • Students from campuses not listed here as a Participating campus can submit an entry under the ‘Wild Card category’
  • All teams intending to participate in the contest are required to register themselves before the stipulated date


Know more

Airtel's App Development contest is an open-ended challenge. Teams are free to think creatively and outside-the-box, the only requirement being that the app must be related to the one of the below themes:
    Telecom and the Internet of Things (IoT)
    The Internet of Things is an inter-connection of everyday objects among themselves and applications, the central idea being that there will be more things connected in the Internet than people connected through it. From connected cars that cut insurance costs to washing machines controlled by smartphones, the "internet of things" is rapidly becoming the next big market for the world's largest technology and telecom groups. The rise of the Internet of Things – including the growing penetration of smart devices in the digital home – represents a massive opportunity for telecom players. Telecom companies have potential to play in the space encompassing devices, diagnostics, analytics, optimized communication, vertical specific apps, self-care etc.  
  • Telecom and the Mobile wallet
    The mobile wallet allows users to make payments through devices like smartphones, tablets and phablets from any location at any time. With the increase in online transactions and mobile banking, the mobile wallet market in India has grown significantly in a very short time. Last year, major application areas that drove the country's mobile wallet market included money transfer, mobile recharge and bill payments and utility applications. In August 2015, 11 companies received approval for payment bank licenses from the Reserve Bank of India. Airtel will also play in the mobile wallet space. How can telecom leverage technology in this space?
  •  Managing Customer experience through Mobile applications
    Customer Experience Management represents a major opportunity for Telecom Operators to differentiate themselves in a crowded market and achieve enhanced customer satisfaction and higher brand advocacy. The advent of digital channels has changed the way consumers communicate and search for product and service information, and this digitization means big changes in customer service architecture. The MyAirtel app is one such initiative which transfers control to consumers when it comes to providing information on usage, bills, recharges etc. How can we further revolutionize customer service through digital channels and technologies?

    Timelines & submission details

      Competition submission period:
       The Competition Submission Period begins on October 23, 2015, and ends on January 16, 2016
      Submission specifications:
      Each team must make a submission relevant to one of the 3 specified themes. The submission must contain either an original idea or a significant improvement upon an existing idea. Once a Submission is made, the team cannot make any changes or alterations to the submission until judging is complete.
      Each team will be required to provide the following as part of its Submission:
      A single zip file containing
    • The working application along with binary and source code
    • A video of the application (optional)
    • A 3 slide powerpoint presentation. The first 2 slides must provide a description of the application (the app developed must function as expressed in the ppt description). The 3rd slide must describe the technical architecture
    • Each Submission must be in English, or if in a language other than English, the Submission must be accompanied by an English translation of the full text
      Each submission will be judged on the following criteria:
    • Quality of Idea (including creativity and originality)
    • Implementation of the Idea (including user experience, UI design, and performance, technical architecture – scalable, performance oriented, secure)
    • Usefulness & Impact of Idea
    • Prizes

Gender Sensitisation

Gender Sensitisation


What is gender?
Gender is generally confused with sex. According to biological and psychological definitions, there is a wide difference between sex and gender. 

What is sex?
Sex, the term is a biological which refers to the functional differences between males and females and their reproductive potential. It can further be defined as 
a. sex is determined by genes in chromosomes, and
b. male and female are biological terms.

What is gender?

Gender is a psychological term which refers to our awareness and reaction to biological sex. It can be further expanded as
a) Gender is determined by biological, psychological and sociological factors, and 
b) Masculine and feminine are psychological terms which refer to a person's gender. 

Gender role: 
It may be defined as, adoption of masculine or feminine behavioural traits that are deemed appropriate or characteristic of a particular sex or as roles which are classified by sex, where this classification is social and not biological.
 For example, if childbearing is classified as a female role, it is a female gender role, not a female sex role.

Gender identity: 
It is a person's private, subjective sense of their own sex. 

  • Gender is not another word for woman.
  • Gender is not another word for sexual difference. 
  • Gender awareness means the ability to identify problems arising from gender inequality and discrimination, even if these are not very evident on the surface. 

Gender sensitization 

Gender sensitization refers to the modification of behaviour by raising awareness of gender equality concerns. Gender sensitization theories claim that modification of the behavior of teachers and parents towards children can have a causal effect on gender equality. Gender sensitizing "is about changing behavior and instilling empathy into the views that we hold about our own and the other gender. It helps people in "examining their personal attitudes and beliefs and questioning the 'realities' they thought they know."

Gender sensitisation is a weapon towards Gender Equity, Equal Opportunity and Women Empowerment which is essential for creating sustainable development as enshrined in our Constitution. The State & Central Government are making continuous efforts to realize these promises through Policies & Programs. The progress achieved in this direction has a mixed outcome and there is still long way to realize the objectives of the Equitable Society, Gender Equity and inclusive Development without discrimination which can be achieved bringing awareness among the people about the Rights given under the Constitution and the pro- women Acts and laws affecting women’s right and empowerment in India involves a complex pattern of advances and setbacks.

Gender sensitization training is the practical tool for analysing gender relations and provides adequate information regarding major factors that influence and are responsible for maintaining or change the structure of gender relations. It is also a development intervention which aims at awareness, knowledge, skill and behaviour in relation to gender. It concerns with developing skills, capacity to translate such awareness into very specific tools that can be used into practice.  

The pitfalls in development due to Gender inequalities, discrimination, denial/deprivation/in accessibility/violence against women are now cannot be overlooked or sidelined. The nations are well aware of the situation arising out of Gender inequalities and discrimination. The Civil Societies are making efforts by pressing the Governments in power to address these issues. But the magnitude of the problem is so high we cannot wait the situation to take its course as the danger due to neglect issues related to Gender is so phenomenal and colossal. The pro-active initiation towards Gender sensitisation is to ensure adoption of Gender Budgeting at all levels in the letter & spirit. Participation of Women in the processes of Governance is very strongly felt to fulfil the above aspirations. Commitment from the state to ensure women participation in Governance at all levels should be seen in action than in paper. The attitudinal problem of the society against women due to socio-cultural system detrimental to the safety and security of women are posing great threats. Women are pushed to be mute spectators in all the above situations living them in a hopeless situation. It is time to stop shedding tears for all the evils forced on women and get into more civilized and responsible acts leading women to a life with dignity, equity, opportunity and empowerment so that they play major role in building a strong nation. Gender equality is, first and foremost, a human right. A woman is entitled to live in dignity and in freedom from want and from fear. Empowering women is also an indispensable tool for advancing development and reducing poverty. Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities and to improved prospects for the next generation.
