MAX78000 AI Design Contest Winners

A team of MAX78000 experts from Maxim reviewed the projects and created a shortlist which was then handed over to the chairman of the jury, Professor Terence O’Donnell of the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at University College Dublin (Ireland). He was in charge of making a final decision. Congratulations to the winners! And a very special thank you to everyone who participated.

First Prize (€ 2,000): Anomaly detection system for IoT based on MAX78000

Posted by Cathal Kelly, Dominic Lightbody and Duc Minh Ngo (Cork, Ireland)

Professor Terence O’Donnell: “This innovative project implements several solutions to the very current topic of IOT cybersecurity. The approaches are based on the detection of anomalies at the network level and the detection of anomalies in the consumption signature. The project demonstrates a high degree of technical complexity with a very comprehensive set of results. “
