Another event near and dear to my heart – Imagine Cup. I’ve been involved with the competition since 2010 and I can truly say it never ceases to put a smile on my face.

This year I was one of the judges for the Australian finals in Sydney.

A great set of teams with equally great ideas battling it out for a chance to represent us in the Worldwide finals. 

There was a great spread of ideas with Empathy training for Alzheimers using Oculus and Kinect, Windows Phone app that allows people to record their mood and using artificial intelligence algorithms to determine if you might need a friendly phone call etc., staff location tracking for use in emergency situations, gas leak detection etc.

Good luck to the winners!
