According to Aditya Shankar, Co-Founder Doubtnut, “Amid the recent reported cases of COVID -19 there has been a panic all around following which the advisories have been issued by the schools to remain closed for the safety of the students. Our free-of-cost tutoring platform which uses image recognition technology to provide quick solutions to the questions has proven to be the most viable option for students.”
Doubtnut’s platform allows students to find the solution to their questions by simply clicking the picture of the problem and uploading an image on its application. The app extracts text from the image and tries to match it in its database of questions, which are pre-answered and have recorded video solutions. If it finds a match, then the result is provided to the user otherwise it asks the user to post their question publicly for tutors available on the platform to provide a video explaining the query.
The services are available through an Android app on the google playstore.
