At the end of September, a team of ITMO University students took the grand prix of one of the largest hackathons in Russia. Today, they are working on an app for a major sports media outlet. ITMO.NEWS met the members to find out how a neural network can help you become a football ace and why they’re not hurrying to accept job offers from leading tech companies.
‘Working title’, a team made up of ITMO University and Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University’s graduates, won Grand Prix at the 2018 VK Hackathon. They developed an application VK Donors, which was commissioned by DonorSearch. The app is aimed at increasing awareness about blood donation, encouraging people to donate blood and building communication between donors and blood donation centers. In the application, you can write about what exactly you want to donate (whole blood, plasma or other blood components) and in what city, read about the procedure and get some other useful information (for example, about blood donation centers in your city that need your donation most of all). In this interview with ITMO.NEWS, the winners explained about how this app will help promote blood donation in Russia.
