    Three Teams Win IBM Digital - Nation Competition

    Date published: 28 October 2019

    Three teams won IBM Digital – Nation Competition in the final ceremony held on October 26. The teams are Agrotech, Young Heroes and Pioneers.

    The competition was organized under the auspices of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat, in collaboration between IBM, the Information Technology Institute (ITI) and the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), under the theme “Innovate for a better environment.”

    During the final ceremony, the final 10 selected teams presented their solutions to the judges, and the three winning teams were announced. Winners received financial prizes, incubation opportunities by Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and internships at IBM.

    IBM previously organized with ITI a half day workshop in five major cities in Egypt to announce IBM Digital–Nation Competition, its rules, guidelines, and how to join.

    The competition addresses Egypt pollution issues: air, water, noise, light, soil, and others, and discusses the solutions proposed by Egyptian youth to tackle the ever-growing pollution crisis. Emerging Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, and Blockchain, coupled by smart innovative IT developers and research, can help reduce pollution significantly.

    IBM aims to leverage its latest Middle East and Africa (MEA) academic initiative IBM Digital - Nation Africa, and the latest emerging technologies via IBM Cloud to help developers learn, innovate, and build solutions to help reduce pollution in Egypt, and prevent natural disasters like drought, floods, and massive fatal diseases like cancer, strokes, and hypertension.
