Four computer sciences business ideas win; and one already has customers
Four projects created by computer-science students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison won a total of $12,000 in prizes in the computer science department's NEST competition on April 6.
"I'm excited for two reasons," said organizer Jignesh Patel, professor of computer science. "The first-prize winner, Moonshot Learning, already has made sales - indicating that it's answering a real need in the marketplace. And second, two of the four winners were headed by women, who have been traditionally under-represented in our field."
