AI Top 10 for Australia and New Zealand

AI Top 10 for Australia and New Zealand

Thousands of Australian and New Zealand high school students engaged in the challenge with almost 500 team submissions. Microsoft brought together a group of global leaders in technology and society to judge submissions. The Top 10 teams were recognised in a virtual announcement with Lee Hickin (Microsoft Chief Technology Officer; NSW Government AI Advisory and Review Committee and ICJ Ambassador) and Tiffany Wright (Director Education, Australia Microsoft) via Microsoft Teams.

Congratulations to Year 9 student Darcy who placed in the Top 10 in the Australian and New Zealand region. Her concept was an app for communication between teachers/schools and parents who speak English as a second language. The app uses pictures and translation to ensure that teachers and schools can communicate effectively with all parents.

It’s great to see our students leading innovative ideas with the aim to assist others.
