COMP students won Championship in Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017 Hong Kong Final

Two COMP students, Mr Mingyu Ma and Miss Shi Wang, teamed up with an EIE student, Mr Shuhao Chang, to participate in the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017 – Hong Kong and won the Championship and the Most Innovative Award with their mobile app “Sense+”. They defeated 35 projects from 8 local universities and will represent Hong Kong to compete with over 54 national teams at the Imagine Cup World Final in Seattle, U.S. on 24 - 26 July.

“Sense+” stands for “See, Explore, Notice and Search with Ears”. Built on Microsoft’s artificial intelligence tools, the winning app turns the camera lens in mobile phones into the “eyes” of the visually impaired, helping them to explore the environment, identify friends and locate belongings. 

Congratulations to the students for attaining such outstanding achievement and we wish them a great success in the World Final!
