Earlier this year, I was privileged to participate in the review process for finalists in the Convergence Innovation Competition sponsored by the Georgia Tech Research Network Operations Center (GT-RNOC).  I was deeply impressed with the innovation displayed by the Georgia Tech students in the projects they presented.

Yesterday, I received a link to the competition results.  Let me add my congratulations to all involved!  Both students and advisors displayed great creativity and worked very hard to provide innovative outcomes.  Thanks to the sponsors who made it possible.

It was great to learn that the project I liked most was awarded first place overall.  MoVue exploited the camera, GPS and accelerometer subsystems within an Android phone to present a novel user interface showing icons and point of interest information on the device screen in real time, visually filtered according to personal interest and history.  I believe this type of user-focused, context-aware application holds strong promise for commercial success.

    This is right Mr.Mark, They really deserve it. But competition is competition, one have to win another have to loose.
