Universities are doing great things with Azure
“By using Azure Notebooks, students aren’t hindered by installation issues. They can just start working straight away. All they need is a decent browser and an Internet connection.”

Students build a prosthetic solution using Azure
In July 2018, two students from Canada won the Imagine Cup and took home $85000 plus $50000 in Azure grants for designing an accessibility-focused solution. They created smartARM, a robotic prosthetic hand that calculates the appropriate grip for objects by utilizing Microsoft Azure Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
