Amy was awarded a £400 prize with a certificate and will represent the Americas in the PATW Global Final that takes place at the IET Achievement Awards ceremony.
The runner up received £300 and a certificate. This was awarded to Pradesh Boodoosingh, a medical engineering student who competed in the Trinidad & Tobago local heat with his presentation on Ethics, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Autonomous Vehicles. He presented a range of scenarios which left the audience questioning their own morals and judgments and asking how we will choose to apply these so that autonomous vehicles can make real-time decisions.
The Global final will take place at the IET Achievement Awards ceremony on 24 October at Savoy Place, where Amy will compete against regional winners from Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South Asia and the United Kingdom to win the grand prize of £1000
