Imagine Cup Judging

With all the work going on at office, I didn’t have much time on my hands to be doing any posting. Anyway this post is way overdue and goes back to the 25th of March when two industry heavy-weights, Duminda Ratnayaka (CEO of Celltel, a visionary who launched the first mobile company in Sri Lanka way back in the early 90s), Dr. Emerick Fernando (another great guy who once used to work at Microsoft and was also CEO of Global Software Labs in Colombo) along with a bunch of MVPs (Prasanna and Wela) and Ed Quek from Microsoft Singapore got together to judge the best teams for the Imaging Cup.

Congratulations to the four teams who made it to the final round of the Sri Lankan leg. One of these teams will be the ultimate winner and will be representing Sri Lanka in the worldwide competitions in Japan.

  • Fuzzy Climate (Weather Warning using Human Observation, University of Moratuwa)
  • QuickAid (Medical Volunteer System, University of Colombo, Medical Faculty)
  • Mobile Reporter (Reporting everything with combined voice data and video, University of Colombo)
  • SivuMithun (Purchasing Process for Farmers and Mudalalis, University of Moratuwa)

Ed, Sriyan (Country Manager, Microsoft) and Jinashri (Education Programme Manager, Microsoft) looking on while Duminda talks about the judging outcome.


Dr. Emerick looks on while Duminda does more talking!

Wela on the phone, while Prasanna shows off our potential, his passion!
