Problem Statement

Modern life is inundated with complex paper and digital forms, spanning various activities from applications to submissions. From birth certificates to school enrollment, government loans to passports, navigating these forms is a ubiquitous challenge. Information overload and unfamiliarity with bureaucratic processes often lead to errors, causing many to miss out on important benefits, even when they’re otherwise eligible.

We are seeking AI champions to alleviate the burden of form filling and make a meaningful impact for those who are missing out on crucial benefits they urgently need.

The topic for this challenge was developed from a conversation with Dr. David Bray, distinguished fellow with the Stimson Center, about how nice it would be if forms (application forms, enrollment forms, tax forms, etc) could just talk to the user who had to fill them out. How much simpler it would be!
