The Microsoft Imagine Cup is a great platform to invite and encourage students to use technology and teamwork to build the next great idea of tomorrow. Last week 52 teams competed down to a final four, and squared off against each other with a panel of professional judges to pitch their project ideas. The final four teams hailed from Canada, United States, Argentina, and Czech Republic.
The wait is finally over, as team X.GLU of the Czech Republic were crowned the winners of the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017. The team wins a mentoring session with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, $100,000 in cash, a $125,000 Azure Grant and a trip to the 2018 Build developer conference.
Second place went to Team Oculogx of the United States, which built a mixed reality app that uses HoloLens and Microsoft Azure to draw a virtual path for a user to help them locate items in large warehouses. Third place went to Team Nash of Argentina for its project, RESCUE, a Microsoft Azure-powered platform that uses drones to reduce response times during natural disasters. Finally, fourth place went to Team NeuroGate of Canada, which created a solution that uses Microsoft Kinect motion data and machine learning to analyze gait patterns and diagnose potential neurodegenerative diseases.
