Gurugram, 18 January 2021: The software solutions company – Daffodil Software bagged the award for the Best Financial Services Mobile Application at the recently held annual Mobile Web Awards organized by the Web Marketing Association.
The software services provider won the award for its AI-enabled Mobile App for Currency Detection called MANI (Mobile Aided Note Identifier). The exemplary mobile application was built for one of Daffodil’s prestigious clients – Reserve Bank of India (RBI) – which helped the visually-impaired identify the denomination of Indian banknotes. The application proved the scope of Artificial Intelligence benefitting 8 million visually impaired people across India. With more than 1 million downloads, the MANI app functionality has been lauded for its utility and simplicity.
The development of the application came with its own set of challenges such as identifying the notes in different light conditions. To overcome this, team Daffodil used Machine Learning (ML) with Image Classification. Another major challenge was to enable the app to function in offline mode for users with low or no internet connectivity. This raised the problem of self-training in the data set for which the team at Daffodil rigorously trained the data set to provide accurate results.
“AI has great potential to help and improve the life quality of the marginalized. We at Daffodil are constantly identifying areas to use Artificial Intelligence to solve real-world problems. Eventually, it’s not only the client satisfaction that we focus on, but as a technology partner we are here to do our bit in making a better world for everyone through Artificial Intelligence and other technologies,” said Yogesh Agarwal, CEO & Founder (Daffodil Software).
What sets the Web Marketing Association from other award programs is its commitment in recognizing and boosting the morale of the creative minds behind the success of a brand or campaign.
