On Future - to Constantly Redefine & Be Motivated

In a world where technology and knowledge changes daily, navigating life balance with learning (inside of schools) and lifeload (outside of school) is key. FutureCite connects with Rishi Mehta, who shares with us his outlook in Episode Series 1 to 3.

In Episode 2, Rishi talks about his interest in AI and why he looks at it as a tool to enable him to still focus on his passion in AVs. He also talks about the need to change and evolve the definition of success for his generation – Gen Z.

Episode 2
The most recent project I’ve worked on was a Road Sign Classifier which when it sees any road sign, it can determine what it is then obey the command. For example if there was a stop sign, my algorithm would understand that and stop the car. By going through three steps, Preprocessing, the Convolutional Neural Network and the Output, my algorithm can take images that are frames generated by the computer from a video. Then it outputs what sign it thinks it is by choosing the one with the highest probability.

Rishi is a 13-year-old that is extremely passionate about the emerging technologies of the future. He believes that these emerging technologies define who we are as people and show how much we’ve grown as a society. He started his journey 3 years ago when he was introduced to drag and drop coding. Then it progressed to JavaScript and now, Python. Then he started to look at the world’s biggest problems and that’s when he heard that 90% of all traffic accidents are caused by human error. That’s when he realized that his life work would be pursuing level 5 autonomy and making it a centerpiece of the future. From making Lane Detection Algorithms to Road Sign Classifiers, Rishi is currently learning as much as possible about the world of Autonomous Vehicles.
