Prometheus at the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2018 Worldwide Finals!

My team Prometheus, a Fire Detection software powered by AI, competed at the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2018 Worldwide finals in Seattle.

It was an amazing experience! We reached the semifinals with 15 other teams and finished in the Top-6 AI projects overall. The projects from other competitors were absolutely stunning and taclked really important social problems. Congratulations to teams smartARM and iCry2Talk that took home the grand prizes!
