We take the internet for granted. But for many millions, the internet and information is a luxury.
People in developing countries can only access low bandwidth networks at disproportionately high prices compared to their personal income.
This limits access to information – while education platforms like Khan Academy are ostensibly free, they are prohibitively expensive to access.
Our technology enables people from developing countries to download and access this content at a fraction of the price.
OpenCV for Computer Vision analysis
7-Zip for Text Compression Algorithm
OpenCV for Android for mobile app
A web server to host our compressed videos
Khan Academy API and Google TTS for audio
We can give people access to a wealth of information at a fraction of the cost.
Compression rate of appx 120 - 150 times
People can use our application to download and render entire Khan Academy videos on a wide range of devices.
We believe that there is strong scope to implement this sort of product with Facebook’s Internet.org initiative to provide leading education to a wider range of people
In addition to Khan Academy, there is plenty of opportunity to expand to other MOOCs – including services like Coursera, MITx and Udacity
