The teams of PhD, Master, and Bachelor students from ETH Zürich and the University of Liverpool are now invited to submit their applications for the 2nd edition of the Student Developer Contest. The competition focuses on Tiny Machine Learning on Sony Spresense and its purpose is to stimulate innovative ideas about machine learning in the area of smart wireless sensors, while creating new use cases and applications for Sony’s Spresense.
By May 20th, it will be announced if students’ applications have been accepted. Those successful will be invited to work on a preliminary demo and presentation until June 30th. The organizing committee will evaluate the proposals based on scientific excellence, originality, potential impact, and quality of the planned demo. The finalists will be announced in a final event that will take place in September, at ETH Zürich in Switzerland.
The contest is organized jointly by the D-ITET Center for Project Based Learning (PBL) and the University of Liverpool and sponsored by the Sony Semiconductor Solutions Group, who will provide Spresense kits for the admitted teams. Both universities are part of the Sensing Solution University collaboration Program (SSUP), and each works with Spresense on developing innovative solutions with societal applications. SSUP encourages and supports research collaboration in the area of sensing solutions and promotes innovation and education.
