Hailing from Canada, the student team created a robotic prosthetic hand that can recognize objects and figure out the best way to grip them.
smartARM's prosthetic pairs a camera with Microsoft Azure Computer Vision, machine learning, and cloud storage to accomplish its goal. As winners, smartARM will receive $85,000 in cash, a $50,000 Azure grant, and a mentoring session with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
Aside from smartARM, this year's competition featured some other novel projects. Taking second place was a team from Greece called iCry2Talk, which developed an interface that translates a baby's cry to a specific physiological and psychological state. The result is then communicated in a text, image, and voice message. Meanwhile, a Japanese team called Mediated Ear took third place with a project aimed at helping hearing-impaired people to focus on a single speaker in an environment with multiple conversations occurring.
