Building the app is the easy (or at least the relatively easier) part of the bigger picture. The challenge is in finding the first solution to a business problem that's costing companies millions (or billions). Since you have the experience and skills to build a software product, I recommend seeking a dev/architect position in an early stage company that has (or is close to having) stage 1 funding. The rewards (both professional and monetary) can be significant. I strongly recommend not trying to find solutions to business problems - you won't have time to do any development if you're busy doing that.
Any existing app - that is written / designed poorly - is a candidate. Take a look at any of the available productivity apps in the app store and see which one is horse crap, and is a kind of project you'd enjoy working on.
I'd like to see an app that can make sound visible. It might not be a mobile app though.
Think along the lines of night vision goggles making infrared visible, but using sound waves and their frequencies instead.
Does anything like that already exist?
yeah, it looks interesting. It definitely has a different feel than other Star Trek properties...

Patrick Stewart is a pleasure to watch, and I was surprised to discover he's also one of the Executive Producers. But as he has admitted, I think "Picard" will be a hard sell. I'm not exactly taken by the plot so far, and the previews for the next episode left me less than inspired.
So, given my "meh" reaction, I think I'll wait until the full season has transpired so I don't have to drum up the motivation every week and I can get more of a feeling of continuity by watching 2 or 3 episodes at a time.
I hope they have put something together that at least captivates me like FireFly or Dark Matter did, and I would be truly impressed if they can attain the quality and nuance that I experienced with the first two seasons of ST Discovery.

Tastes can certainly differ.
The two female leads killed discovery for me; they were both dreadful characters -- and Fred/Jimmy/Albert/whatever-her-name-was was awfully acted (my guess is that she took the direction "look confident" to mean "act like an arrogant b@st@rd").
Also, I don't recall seeing many loving relationships featured prominently in ST (in fact, I can't think of any at all -- Spock's folks hardly qualify). How woke of them to give pride of place to a passionate gay relationship in every episode of discovery.
I didn't even bother watching most of the second season.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
just hope it's not going to kill Star Trek the way the dark knight utterly destroyed the batman.
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
