Venter - Intelligent Complaint Resolution for IITB Campus
Many civic problems fail to reach resolution because of barriers to submitting a complaint or knowing the right person to contact. As a solution to such problems, Venter is an intelligent complaint management system being developed at IIT Bombay, in collaboration with Microsoft Research which aims to create a platform for categorizing and routing civic complaints to relevant officials. Advances in speech and image understanding have made it possible to create an AI intermediary that speeds up complaint categorization and resolution.
Currently, the day to day issues faced by the students, faculty, and staff at IIT Bombay find it difficult to reach a resolution due to multiple factors ranging from ease of accessibility, unawareness of correct channels to cumbersome processes to lodge complaints with the institutional authorities. What IIT Bombay needs is an in-house Complaint Management System to facilitate the above and to set up a mechanism for effectively collecting, categorizing and addressing the institution’s internal issues.
This project aims to create a mobile and web platform for students and faculty to lodge complaints which can be recorded, classified and rerouted to the appropriate institutional authority for speedy complaint redressal.
The app provides a service to register complaints, along with supplementary information such as the location, images, etc and authenticates the user through his/her official credentials. The primary goal of the app is to create a community setup where the users can lodge new complaints, upvote, and comment on the existing complaints. These complaints are analyzed at the backend using a Machine Learning model to generate complaint categories or group similar complaints. Administrators need to manual intervene to moderate complaints and route them to the appropriate authority for resolution.
