“It was my first collegiate electronic contest and an amazing experience for me. First of all, we received 3-4 months ago a device manufactured by Intel which is a very powerful computer device board powered by an Bay-Trail – Intel® Atom™ Processor E3800 Product Family. We had to develop something on it, anything. I choose to develop a smart surveillance system that uses Artificial Intelligence to process the images in order to recognize the moving objects like pedestrians, cars, animals … anything that is not static and can be seen by the surveillance cameras”, explains Ionut Budisteanu the device he made for this competition on his blog.

In 2013, Time magazine ranked him 9th in the chart of most influential teens in the world and in 2014 he made an application for sightless allowing them to walk using the mobile phone.
