🪔 | The 'Lovely Ladoos' Challenge!

Last week our India-based chefs - Microsoft Student Ambassadors Aditya Raman and Soumya Naraparaju - shared of their favorite festive recipes from the Diwali season for our Week 2 challenge.

The Lovely Ladoos Challenge Crew

As ladoo perfectionists, they know they have a perception challenge! Everyone makes ladoos (a Diwali delicacy) differently - and it's hard to know if the sweet you are presented with is, in fact, a recognizable ladoo! They came up with the perfect plan!


"Machine Learning can rescue me ..
Are these ladoos that I see?"

From the project brief

Create a machine learning model that can analyze images of ladoos made for Diwali. This way, folks can upload an image of their ladoos and see how well the model predicts whether they are a proper ladoo. You'll want to create a serverless function to handle image uploads to test the model. You'll also need a dataset of ladoos, and ...

Your ladoo model will serve as a judge to your skill in making ladoos. This is a playful way to channel your inner child for Diwali!


👨🏼‍🍳 | Our Chefs Weigh in!
