Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017 – Pakistan Regional Finals Results


To provide proper context to our readers, on 4th & 5th April, we held Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017 Regional Finals in Lahore, Karachi, Quetta & Peshawar with consent of Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan. A panel of skilled judges from academia and industry spent days in evaluating more than 130 competing teams from all-across Pakistan. After carefully going through scores given by judges and their comments, we now have visibility of the winning teams. However, before I declare the results of Regional Finals, it would be relevant to make a few important mentions.

Most importantly, our team was absolutely thrilled to see teams competing from universities that are located at remote locations. Not only that we found many projects from these remote locations but also that the quality of those projects was impressive.

A Review of our Judges

Also, a Big Thanks to our judges from each region for taking time out of their busy schedule and evaluating the brainchild of every competing team from every possible prospect before giving final scores. Our judges panel was very diversified and this post would be incomplete without honoring them individually.

Overall, we witnessed some crazy projects from websites to Augmented Reality based training simulators to HoloLens based games, Azure machine learning and Raspberry Pi integrations, new research based languages and development environments plugins. Covering 130 such projects is a tedious task so I intend to cover the details of the Regional Finals winning projects in a separate blog post.

Here are few pictures of the Regional Finals evaluations from different cities.
