Student project “Sense+” showcased at InnoCarnival 2017

PolyU student project, “Sense+”, was invited to showcase at InnoCarnival 2017 organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission from 21 – 29 October at Hong Kong Science Park.

“Sense+” stands for “See, Explore, Notice and Search with Ears”. It is a mobile app designed by two COMP students, Mr Mingyu Ma and Miss Shi Wang, and an EIE student, Mr Shuhao Chang. Built on Microsoft’s artificial intelligence tools, this app turns the camera lens of mobile phones into the “eyes” of the visually impaired, helping them to explore the environment, identify money notes, friends and locate belongings. 

The Sense+ team defeated 35 projects from 8 local universities and won the Championship and the Most Innovative Award at Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017 - Hong Kong Final.
