Over 300 developers gathered virtually over the course of 7 weeks to participate in the Microsoft Azure IoT Hack for Sustainability challenge. Participants were asked to join Microsoft in advancing sustainability by understanding how to use technology to measure and minimize environmental impact. The hackathon specifically focused on using Azure IoT technologies that will give endless possibilities: collect real time data, capture rich information using cameras and machine learnings, create real time insights, and automated action without human intervention.
Let's take a look at the top 6 winning projects below:
Foodcy app connects local businesses like bakeries and supermarkets with residents and local shelters so they can reduce surplus food. It also uses AI technology to reduce food waste in the kitchen.
On behalf of the Microsoft U.S. Azure team, I'd like to thank all of the participants, and congratulate the winners on a job well done!
