Problem Statement:
Innovation is essential to address the issue of excessive alcohol consumption and its associated problems. Existing methods like public awareness campaigns and law enforcement can only go so far in mitigating the problem. An innovative system to detect and de-escalate individuals under the influence can provide a proactive and tailored solution. It can offer timely intervention, potentially preventing violent incidents, while reducing the overall societal and personal costs associated with alcohol-related issues.

About the Innovation:
Young inventors from DiscoverSTEM devised an AI-powered intelligent system that detects if an individual is under the influence of alcohol and showing aggressive behavior. If such a behavior is detected, the system administers a pre-prescribed dose of calming medicine, thus preventing any untoward incident and escalation of aggression.

DiscoverSTEM founders Mirza Rizwan and Mirza Faizan have made history by becoming the first Indian to win the coveted George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation – USA.

Started in 1949 by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Freedoms Foundation honors exceptional contributions of Americans towards communities in the USA. Generally reserved for the US citizens, the awarding organization made an exception to recognize the stellar research work and its impact of India’s Mr. Rizwan in designing and implementing a unique STEM & Innovation program for American children, thereby revolutionizing the education system in the USA.

Few of the other notable non-US citizens who have received George Washington Honor Medal include Ms. Margaret Thatcher (Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom), Lech Walesa (Former President of Poland and Noble Prize winner) and world-renowned Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. As the latest recipients of this prestigious honor, Mirza brothers join historically acclaimed group of citizens whose work and dedication advance the American ideals, the award letter says.

Some of the distinguished US citizens who have received this award for their stellar contributions in their field are Walt Disney, Astronauts Sally Ride and John Glenn, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, Athletes like Arthur Ashe, George Foreman and Tiger Woods and famous US educator Jaime Escalante.
