Kelly Corrigan and Gitanjali Rao discuss the question of the season: what does it take to make it in America today? Gitanjali contextualizes the issue of water contamination in Flint, Michigan as she explains her invention, TETHYS, a device that detects lead in drinking water and sends data to a mobile app. Gitanjali also discusses previous ideas and failures before developing TETHYS. The conversation then shifts to Epione, a clinical tool to diagnose addiction, specifically of opioids. She explains how her device helps in screening and monitoring addiction levels, and how this can impact the rehabilitation process. Gitanjali shares her approach to scaling her solutions, including obtaining patents and considering market similarities and approvals. She also mentions her anti-cyberbullying tool, "Kindly," which leverages artificial intelligence for text analysis. Kelly and Gitanjali discuss the importance of giving individuals a chance to reconsider their words and the potential positive impact of such a tool. The young inventor also delves into the influence of mentors, particularly Jennifer Stockdale, and the role that education plays in problem-solving skills and empathy. Gitanjali emphasizes the need to reevaluate the traditional education system and incorporate creativity into the curriculum. The conversation concludes with a discussion on sustaining motivation, the importance of empathy, and the optimistic outlook of the younger generation in making a positive change in the world.
