Boost IT visibility and business value

Well, the judges have spoken and the results are in, and the winners of this year’s Imagine Cup are….Italy.

The winning Italian team To be precise, the winners of the Software Design section of the event, in which the UK’s Team Three Pair were a contender, are the Italian students, Team Even .ctor, made up of Giorgio Sardo, Massimo Paternoster, Silvia Perrone and Andrea Sossich.

Their winning entry which, like all the others had to address the issue of helping people live healthier lives in some way, was called `Hello World’. Strangely, information is limited on what it actually does, though the Imagine Cup website states that it was created `to improve the relationship between medic and patient, supplying the doctor with important information often left out by the patient, whether because he is not able to report them or he doesn't consider them significant. Hello World makes it possible to correlate psychophysiological aspects with the context in which they were actually collected. This new approach will offer a revolutionary tool to people who have to propose therapies for memory-related or stress-related pathologies like anxiety disturbances’. Sounds like a good talking to followed by a large whisky.
