Team Wanile consisting of Muhammad Abdullah, Shehroz Khalid, and Khalid Aslam all 8th semester students of BS Software Engineering participated in Microsoft Imagine Cup 2021 which was conducted online due to the prevailing pandemic. The contest brings together student innovators using passion and purpose to tackle social issues with technology.

Under this prestigious arrangement, students aged 16+, were invited to imagine any solution that they were passionate about. Almost two million students from 100 plus countries participate in this competition annually.

Over 10,000 teams from Pakistan participated in this competition, from which 25 teams were nominated for the champions. Wanile emerged second overall in Pakistan after presenting an overview of the problem that is faced by the people, the basic concept behind its solution, the social adaptability of the solution, the executive summary and the macro financials behind the solution.

 

The amazing App

Wanile is an on-demand home service mobile application which would solve the daily life problems where services of electrician, plumber, beautician etc. might be desired. The App would use the artificial intelligence driven algorithms to determine the cost of the services by which it would become convenient to estimate, control and monitor the cost.

The goal of this application is to ease human life by offering services at the doorstep and help in searching for the best suitable expert within the limited time scope. The Runner-up team was given a cash prize.

The team leader, Muhammad Abdullah while speaking to The Spectacle said, “It was a remarkable experience for us.  We were given a chance to learn a lot and enhance our skills. We are happy that our innovation is solving an actual problem in the contemporary society”.
