Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

At Microsoft Build, the winning team at the Imagine World Cup was announced this week. The annual student competition brings together more than 2 million contenders from around the world. Team REWEBA from Kenya took home the trophy with its Internet of Things based infant monitoring solution. 

The team won $75,000, a mentoring session with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and a $50,000 Microsoft Azure grant. The IoT solution remotely analyzes infant parameters during post-natal screening and serves as an early warning intervention system.

Projects for the Imagine Cup are submitted in four social good categories—Earth, Education, Healthcare and Lifestyle. The top four teams pitched their projects at the World Championship during Microsoft Build this week, giving in-depth presentations that judges assessed for diversity, originality and innovative design.

The winning team, REWEBA, which stands for Remote Well Baby, digitally monitors the growth of babies and their health and sends the results to doctors for timely intervention. It combines machine learning, IoT and data analytics to screen infants, mimicking postnatal screening that takes place in a hospital. The team members are Dharmik Karania, Jeet Gohil, Khushi Gupta and Abdihamid Ali.

Gupta said the driving factor for the team’s solution was enabling equal access to healthcare services and saving infants from fatal diseases: “Africa has the highest number of [infant mortalities], highlighting the gap in healthcare services. REWEBA is the only remote healthcare solution that provides regular growth monitoring for infants from the comfort of the home, while also giving direct access to doctors for immediate intervention.”

Registration for the 2022 Imagine Cup competition is open, and anyone who is a student and 16 or older can sign up.
