In order to promote the Internet of Things, the International Telecom Union (ITU) has partnered with Intel on the first ever Telecom World Young Innovators Competition dubbed the Single Board Challenge 2015. It will focus on entrepreneurs with innovative ideas on how to apply the latest generation of single board computers and controllers to social causes. These solutions can be based on tools such as Intel Edison and Intel Galileo, applied in the form of wearables, embedded devices, Internet of Things solutions or other applications which can be used to improve people’s lives.
Two winners of the the Single Board Challenge will be invited to join ITU Telecom World 2015 in Budapest, Hungary, October 12-15, 2015 to pitch their ideas, participate in workshops, benefit from a year of ongoing mentorship, and win seed funding. As a special prize for the best five solutions of this challenge, Intel will provide Intel Galileo and Intel Edison units to allow the innovators to develop their solutions, along with expert coaching to our winners, helping them prototype and launch their ideas. Intel Galileo and Intel Edison will also be distributed to a select group of other promising projects. See source link below for more details.
