Last year's winners

Last year’s winner, UCD student Aaron Byrne, won the competition with his submission, Image Intelligence. This would allow companies to identify and track where images of their products or logos have appeared online and on social media channels through the use of image recognition technology.

The idea reflected the ever increasing prevalence of visual imagery on the web and that semantic methods are no longer sufficient in gauging customer sentiment, understanding customer trends, detecting counterfeit products and services or measuring the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. The service offering would support a number of commercial activities including brand management and marketing analytics.
