Punarnirman – Rejuvenating India’s Heritage

Culture is a living phenomenon that survives through our Heritage – which is not in a sound condition, with many of them on the verge of extinction.

We need to step up and act before it’s too late. We believe we can rejuvenate our Heritage Sites with the help of emerging technologies like Deep Learning, AI, Machine Learning and cutting edge Image Processing. Are you willing to take the challenge?

“This is a great initiative by Rishihood University, Internity Foundation and Sapio Analytics for the much-needed preservation of our rich heritage. I firmly believe our talented youth will come up with the most innovative ideas to preserve our rich cultural legacy for future generations.”
