April 2018 – Alexander Tzonev, CTO at BULPROS, was special guest and jury member in the first exhibition of student IT projects at TUES Fest. BULPROS gave a special prize in category "Innovative Thinking and Creativity" – a micro drone. The big winner was Historical chatbot, a project created by four young IT talents, studying in 9th grade: Anton Yanchev, Victor Velev, Samuil Georgiev and Georgi Lyubenov.
The creators of Historical chatbot said about their invention: “It is a ChatBot that discovers what historical facts are interesting for you and recommends reading articles. The technologies developed include: Python, Machine Learning, Elasticsearch.” The team has found a new way to make history more interesting subject using modern technology.
For BULPROS and Alexander Tzonev was a great honor to meet the young talents who were participating at TUES Fest 2018. The students (from 8th to 12th grade) presented the best of what they have done over the year in three areas - software, computer networks and embedded systems аnd the level of the projects was extremely high. There were proposals such as cutting-edge, machine learning powered solutions, online games and gaming consoles, self-managed robots and self-driving cars, PBX projects and security networking systems and many more ideas and developments.
“I was impressed by the energy and curiosity demonstrated by the students. The innovative application of cutting-edge technologies on display and the desire to change the status quo created an amazing atmosphere for all visitors of the event. It was very tough selecting a winner, but the ability of the team to explore a complex domain such as machine learning and apply it in their everyday life at a very young age tipped the scales for me”, says Alexander Tzonev.
The BULPROS family is always happy to support the education and development of young IT talents and we are delighted to work together with the TUES Fest organizers in achieving this goal.
