an Engineer turned Banker posted in Syndicate Bank Ghatampur Branch under Regional Office Kanpur invented Artificial Intelligence-based Crowd Sourced learning System.
In the wave of continuous Banking Frauds & Scams from a long time, here we have got a ray of hope from a small rural branch of Syndicate Bank, which proves there is an enormous amount of talent in PSBs which is being ignored in the negativity of media news.
As the founder of this AI based Revolutionary Idea – “Bankerpedia” was not available for comments, We contacted other sources to bring the story out, and the story is truly inspirational for those who want to help others make this world a better place.
According to Aisha, one of the contributors at Bankerpedia, The Story started from the notification of Departmental Promotion Examination of Syndicate Bank in December 2017. The written examination was scheduled on 10th Feb 2018. After the declaration of result, his Interview Date was fixed on 3rd March 2018 at Regional Office Kanpur. He was one of the 978 Candidates who passed Syndicate Bank Written Promotion Exam and was preparing for the Interviews.
He started Interview preparation from 22nd February. During preparation, he was in contact with several colleagues of Syndicate Bank from RO Noida, RO Ghaziabad, RO Varanasi, RO Lucknow & RO Kanpur to discuss the preparations regularly. There was a problem of sharing notes & study material for promotion exam due to location constraints and it was not feasible through WhatsApp or other online alternatives because of the high volume of study material to be shared. To solve this, he started creating a multi-platform AI Based Portal to share and learn the Banking Terminologies, Definitions, Concepts, Guidelines etc with his friends in form of a Comprehensive Encyclopedia. Coding of this portal completed in 6 days & he made it available Online for Free usage by everyone, it became viral among Bankers all around the country in few days after it went live due to Word of Mouth Advertising done by the Bankers who liked it. In the span of Just 10 days, it had more than 500 posts from all over the country & some from even Foreign Countries.
“Most successful entrepreneurs share their knowledge as a way of giving back. They do not demand compensation. Those who do are usually trying to take advantage of you.”
Strange thing about the founder, he doesn’t use mobile phone(for making & receiving calls) & Social Networks because according to him, both of these things were meant to reduce human time & increase efficiency by speeding transfer of data but humans are using these inventions for totally opposite function for which they were meant to be used. That’s why he forwards the calls of his mobile to a switched off sim card & use mobile sim internet for creating amazing things without any disturbance & he doesn’t have any social media profile to waste his time.
The most Interesting Fact about “Bankerpedia” is, The Portal was coded in 6 days on Mobile during the daily commute from Elgin Mills Civil Lines Kanpur to Ghatampur (because he lived in Kanpur and was posted in Ghatampur approx 100 Km of daily travel to & fro). At the time of coding, he didn’t know that one day it’s going to be used by thousands of Learners. His imagination of finding a way to ease the efforts of collecting Notes & sorting out what to study & what to leave and how to share all these notes to the Colleagues who are going to appear in the same exam turned out to be a great Idea.
Imagination and invention go hand in hand. Remember how lack of resources was never a problem in childhood games? Shift a few pieces of furniture around the living room, and you have yourself a fort.
How Bankerpedia works?
- Contributors from different location of the country having a strong hold on concepts of a particular topic share it to Bankerpedia in form of Miniature posts.
- Lots of miniature posts accumulate and forms a large source of Database on the same topic known as KnowledgeBase.
- Artificial Intelligence bots of Bankerpedia crawls through all the accumulated Database and sort out the most accurate and useful data.
- The useless data are sent to trash for Deletion or Updation.
- If the updating process doesn’t initiate in 7 days the AI bots permanently delete the data.
- Learners/Users who are in need of notes, Search it on Bankerpedia.
- The AJAX Search Technology embedded in Bankerpedia returns the required Data Immediately.(AJAX Live Search is a PHP search form that similar to Google Autocomplete feature displays the result as you type.)
- The Learner/User can start learning digitally through his mobile/tablets anywhere anytime.
By far, the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it.

Here is a Screenshot of Artificial Intelligence-based “Bankerpedia”, Since he is employed with Syndicate Bank & doesn’t have time to write all the study material, he crowd-sourced it with several bankers & to update study material & maintain them, he created Artificial Intelligence Bots to take care of all these things. Apart from this, he has kept Security of Users and user’s data at top priority by using SSL(Secure Sockets Layer is a standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in an online communication). The usage of SSL technology ensures that all data transmitted between the web server and browser remains encrypted.
