In today's world, several pressing societal issues demand immediate attention. These encompass social inequality or inequity, sustainability challenges, mental health concerns, and housing crises. Technology has played a pivotal role in both exacerbating these issues and providing potential solutions. While advancements have brought connectivity and efficiency, they've also widened societal gaps, contributed to environmental degradation, added complexities to mental health concerns, and highlighted housing disparities.

We would like you to choose one of the issues mentioned above (social inequality/inequity, sustainability challenges, mental health concerns, or housing crises) and identify a specific pain point within that issue. We would then like you to propose a new technology solution or new component of a current technology to address it.

NOTE: Your idea should be feasible within 2-5 years based on technology today.

Bonus points for software-based solutions!

  1. Describe in detail a specific pain point within the societal issue you selected.
