The three young people have developed the ‘Peace software’ to help and assist people in conflict-prone areas of the world. The three young minds (Sagnik Chatterjee, a tenth-grade student of Army Public School, Barrackpore; Arunava Lahiri, a software engineer at CGI; Anirban Dutta, a post-graduate student at the Symbiosis School of International Studies, Pune) met under unexpected circumstances at the Harvard Conference of 2022. The raging conflicts around the world made them develop software which can help people in conflict-prone areas.
The software aims to bridge the communication gap between rescue agencies, provide medical assistance and find the safest route for the stranded people driving them out of unsafe areas amid conflict or war. The software developed by the three talented individuals also facilitates an SOS message in case of casualties and provides them with emergency contacts. The software aims to track the people out of the unsafe locations by tracing the places damaged amid a conflict.
The software has won a tech hackathon at the Evergreen Valley Programming Club, U.S.A. The team has been a finalist at the Hacktech, 2022 organised by the California Institute of Technology, California, U.S.A. The software launch is due shortly, with the team looking forward to upgrading and developing the software with further cooperation.
