Biography
Anmol Tukrel is a student at Holy Trinity School in Toronto. His project involves using Artificial Intelligence to help visually impaired individuals. He plans on presenting his findings to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and subsequently forming a non-profit organization to distribute this technology for free to any visually impaired individuals who wish to use it. If there was any advice he could give to other students doing a project, it would be that the only thing needed to create something innovative is curiosity.
