HKU iDendron incubatee Hollo wins 2020 Microsoft Imagine Cup World Champion

香港大學創新及創業中心iDendron培育的學生初創團隊Hollo,擊敗過千名來自世界各地的參賽隊伍,贏得微軟Imagine Cup世界錦標賽全球總冠軍,也是自比賽於2003年開辦以來首次由香港參賽隊伍勝出。   Hollo學生團隊成員Cameron van Breda,Ajit Krishna Namakkal Raghavendran 和Piyush Jha在香港大學認識。他們留意到現時一些心理健康的支援措施未能有效觸及較年輕的社群,故他們開始藉著科技解決問題。團隊利用 Microsoft Azure 、大數據及機器學習等技術,研發一個心理健康夥伴應用程式,為有精神健康問題的人提供協助,以及提供治療支援。   微軟Imagine Cup世界錦標賽有來自200多個國家超過28,000名學生報名參加,而亞洲地區決賽只選出其中10隊作賽。今年2月,Hollo學生團隊經已勝出亞洲地區決賽,晉身世界錦標賽。今次贏得全球總冠軍,Hollo將會獲得 10 萬美元現金獎、價值 5 萬美元的 Azure 基金,並由微軟行政總裁 Satya Nadella 親自指導運用。   自 2003 年起,一年一度的微軟 Imagine Cup 是全球頂尖的學生科技比賽,更被參賽者稱為「學生科技比賽的奧運」。今年 Imagine Cup 鼓勵參賽者「夢見它,建構它,運用它」,透過個人的創意、熱情和科技知識來設計可用於改變個人生活、工作和娛樂方式的應用程式。   香港大學首席創新總管/校長資深顧問何亦武博士恭賀Hollo獲獎:「今次學生團隊的成果,展示了校園內發展的創新風氣。港大除了致力於開創新發現及發明,也會將具潛力的研究和知識轉化成產品或服務,推出市場進而改善世界。港大會繼續努力培育更多創新項目和公司,推動創科發展及為年輕一代提供更多機會。」   HKU iDendron incubatee Hollo won the 2020 Microsoft Imagine Cup World Champion with a mental health...
