Seeds for the Future is Huawei’s global flagship program that aims at undergraduate-level ICT students. The tech leader inaugurated the program in Nepal in 2021. It is the second time the prestigious campaign was launched for Nepali students. Likewise, the program has received an overwhelming response from Nepali students since its launch.
The students had an eventful week where they came to close acquaintance with various prominent technologies. They learned about Metaverse, 5G, AI, and Cloud. Their busy schedule also included visits to the UNESCAP office and cultural sites in Thailand. In addition, they also worked with their mentor to refine their project – Advait.
Team Nepal was victorious with 6 other teams during Huawei’s Seeds for the Future 2022 CSR program
Advait was one of the winning projects in the Tech4Good competition that took place on August 27. The competition had 24 teams from 16 countries from the Asia Pacific (APAC) region present their innovative ideas. Altogether, 7 teams were selected as the winners.
Advait is an app that uses blockchain and AI to detect possible fraud in medications. The idea is that each medication file gets a QR code. When buyers scan the QR code unique to the medication, they would instantly learn about the manufacturing date, expiry date, whether the medication comes from a registered distributor or retailer, and the MRP.
As part of the program, Team Nepal with 6 other winning teams will get on a trip to Singapore next week. The teams will participate in the Tech4Good accelerator camp where they will meet experts and do a public demonstration of their idea at the National University of Singapore campus.
