Design Automation Of Network Configuration Using Artificial Intelligence

Computer Networks and Security - BSc (Hons)

Introducing DANCAI: A smart assistant using AI to quickly and affordably configure computer networks, revolutionising the setup process for both businesses and individuals. 

Brief Overview of Your Project

DANCAI is like a super-smart assistant for setting up computer networks. Instead of people spending lots of time figuring out how to make all the computers communicate with each other, DANCAI does it much faster and cheaper using artificial intelligence.

What Made You Want to Develop This Idea?

Have you ever waited a long time for your computer network to be set up? It can be frustrating and costly, especially for small businesses. I wanted to find a way to make this process quicker and more affordable for everyone.

Why Is There a Need for What You're Creating?

Similar to when you move houses. Setting up the furniture takes both time and effort. It's similar to computer networks, but it's even more complicated. DANCAI helps by arranging all the "furniture" (which are the connections between computers) much faster and cheaper, especially for small businesses who might not have lots of money to spend on fancy setups.

Can You Explain About the Kind of Equipment You Are Using, and How You Are Creating the Physical Product?

DANCAI doesn't need any special equipment. It's all digital, meaning it runs on regular computers or laptops that most people already have. No need for fancy gadgets or expensive tools. As for creating the product, it's all about coding and using advanced algorithms. Think of it like building a really smart computer program that knows how to set up networks quickly and accurately. It's like teaching DANCAI to understand the language of computers and telling them how to connect effectively.

Where Do You Envision the Future of This Project?

In the future, I see DANCAI becoming the go-to solution for setting up computer networks. It's like having a super-efficient assistant who can do the job in a fraction of the time and cost. As technology advances, DANCAI will keep getting better, making network setup even easier and more accessible for everyone. This means businesses, big and small, as well as individuals, can benefit from the power of computers without the headache of complicated setups. It's all about making technology work for us as simply and cost-effectively as possible.
