Axis Bank is one of the first new generation private sector banks to have begun operations in 1994. Today it the third largest bank of the country, providing a wide-spectrum of financial services to multiple customer segments – Retail, SME, Agri & Corporate. Axis has always been forward in technology adoption and using tech in creation of customer centric products & services. This Hackathon is an initiative by Axis Bank to promote innovation in the country and help Startups/Developers and Student entrepreneurs to think out of the box and come up with great solutions for the bank. Purpose of this hackathon is to identify the talent and engage with them for co-learning and co-creating tech & business applications in a collaborative and fun way.
A person’s signature is a representative of his identity. For us at the Bank, a signed document by a customer is an instruction from him for carrying out an approved transaction for him. On on-boarding a customer we capture an image of his signature in our systems, and on receiving a signed document (Cheques, DDs and others) from him we match the signature on the document with the one recorded in the database before proceeding with the instruction.In case of skilled forgeries, it becomes very difficult to verify the identity of the customer.We want you to build a system that can help us distinguish forgeries from actual signatures. This system should be able to study signature parameters as strokes, curves, dots, dashes, writing fluidity & style, in a Writer-Independent manner and create features for identification of the signature. The system should not use any existing APIs and should be completely self-developed. How should it work?
With advent of AI-RPA, document reading and analysis are on their way for becoming mainstream. Tables in documents help represent information in a structured way. For a comprehensive document analysis, it is important to be able to identify, read and understand tables present in documents. This step, although despite a successful OCR, may become difficult, as tables vary a lot in their layout, formats and encoding. The problem at hand is to build a solution that can detect tables in given documents, then make sense of the information they present. For this problem too, you cannot use any existing APIs. How should the system work?
You can submit the solution ideas anytime after the registration and before the end date.
You may submit your hack any number of times.Please note we will consider the final submission only.
Participants will be informed on email.
Phase 1 winners start building the prototype.

In this phase your deliverable is a working prototype solution for the problem chosen. We shall provide you with training data sets. Teams may either submit their work via their GitHub repository links, or via uploading zipped folders, along with instructions for creation of execution environment and running the solution. The solutions will be executed and judged for their accuracy and experience.Besides, you need to submit a write-up covering:
For the finale you shall be invited to Axis Bank’s Innovation Lab, Thought Factory, for a 24 hour exciting hack. You will be accompanied by Bank’s tech leaders & data scientists in final refining of your solution. The final solutions, on submission will be executed by our mentors and judged for accuracy, scope coverage, usability, experience and novelty. Finalists shall get an opportunity to present and talk about their solutions before the senior most management of the Bank.
The solution will be judged on its accuracy, security aspects, usability, customer experience, performance & scalibility.
During all the 3 phases of the Axis Bank AI Challenge, the judging will be based on the following criteria:
