Geelong IT Invention Test Winners focus on Medical Applications
The overall winner of the IT Invention Test conducted by ICT Geelong is Alberto Rizzoli whose company Aipoly is behind the development of an application which uses artificial intelligence to identify and narrate the viewpoint of a smartphone’s camera so that the blind can navigate independently.
Aipoly, based in Melbourne, is understood to be the first company in the world to fully automate smartphone real-time all-object identification.
Mr Rizzoli was presented with a $10,000 cash award and other prizes by ICT Geelong chairman, Nick Stanley, at yesterday’s Pivot Summit in Geelong.
The winning application developed in Geelong is CNSDose, a cloud based medication guidance system to enable doctors and patients to reduce trial and error in the prescribing of anti-depressants.
It was developed by Dr Ajeet Singh who was awarded $5000 cash among a number of other prizes.
The best seed entry, which is in the early stages of commercialisation, is Eye-Track-Me, developed by Sven Krome. This is a customer relationship tool for eye surgery centres to keep potential customers informed by providing free and easy to use vision tests.
Sponsors of the IT Invention Test include the City of Greater Geelong, Geelong Angels Investment Network and StartupCloud.
