ProfHacks 2020 Winners

Corona Calculated

"Using a globe visualization paired with an ML-based regression algorithm and by utilitizing real-time data from Johns Hopkins University, we attempt to solve some of the WHO's COVID-19 objectives. A user can observe a map of the coronavirus outbreak as well as the point of maximum risk, and understand if they should self-quarantine based on their previous traveling."

Sortzy

"Sortzy is a self-sorting trash can that uses computer vision to determine whether an inputted object is recyclable or not, sorts it, and then relays the information to be tracked remotely."

FireScape

"Retrieves data from NASA of wildfires all around the world. It displays data in a mobile app and a website in interactive ways. It can alert emergency contacts with the user's location in evacuation situations."
