Anti-malaria app takes out Microsoft Imagine Cup

An application developed by Auckland University students that aims to help in the battle against malaria has won the New Zealand Microsoft Imagine Cup.

The application, developed by a group of students, is one of two from the university that aim to control the disease.

Team OneBuzz's Vinny Lohan describes says of the project: "Our solution is to use a collaboration platform involving current information, current partners and current actions in a bid to help eradicate malaria from the surface of this planet. By having a system which updates the concerned parties within days rather than months can be used to greater effect to help dispatch medical aid to the concerned regions. We can now react faster to a potential outbreak and stop it from spreading by concentrating aid efforts."

The Imagine Cup is a competition held annually, in which students from around the world develop technologies, using Microsoft software, to help solve global problems. Read the rest of this article on Computerworld.co.nz.
