AI Diagnoses for Home Repair App

  • 30

My idea: an app that uses AI to diagnose a home repair issue and then guides you through how to fix it. You use your phone camera to take a picture of the issue, the app guides you through other pictures/videos needed or questions to answer to determine the root cause of the issue, and then it guides you through how to solve it. This is for DIY aficionados and home handypeople who want to learn how to fix up simple issues in their homes.

  1. Nice idea. I can see my husband really enjoying something like this. Would you also provide the tools you need to fix an issue? Or maybe a project timeline? My husband loves fixing things around the house but frequently gets frustrated when he doesn’t have the tools he needs, runs back and forth to Home Depot, and then ends up being too tired to get work done that day. A project plan alongside tools would be really helpful for us in a tool like this.

  2. Great idea, but a pretty complex execution. You’ll need image recognition, machine learning and/or attribution algorithms. I’m also wondering if you might want to look into liability issues, e.g., if someone follows your app’s directions and ends up damaging their property and needing to pay a lot of money out of pocket to fix the damages.

    It’s a nice idea, but it’s a steep undertaking.
