This blog post is about the best of the best project from Microsoft imagine cup 2019 and 2018 so that we get inspiration from them and see what kind of project can make up to the finals so that we can work on similar projects.
World Finalist from Microsoft Imagine Cup 2019
1st Position Team EasyGlucose from USA
Team Easy Glucose Won the Microsoft imagine cup 2019. Team EasyGlucose created a way to monitor blood sugar in non-invasive way they have created an state of art deep learning model to check sugar in diabetic patient using picture of their eye, they have done it using image processing techniques. They have created mobile application that take picture of your eye and tell the sugar level. There idea was great because they have taken problem which was already solved but they take a different approach to solve it, which was way better, because normally it was a very painful process for any diabetic patient to monitor they sugar level. This non-invasive technique to monitor blood sugar can be break through in the field. That is why they were the winner of this prestigious competition.
