Comments from Judging Panel:
This entry demonstrates good use of technology elements through an analytical framework that integrates AI (classification, NLP), probability analysis and recommendation engine. In essence, its main function is to examine Request for Inspection/Survey Check (RISC) Forms and ascertain if the overall assessment (i.e., pass or fail) is in alignment of the detailed assessment/observations made by front-line workers and supervisors. Market potential is good as it can be applied to all types of projects that involve monitoring and reporting of quality assessment through RISC Form.
