Congratulations to the HackNelson 2017 runner up team... Fishy Business!

In alphabetical order; Andrew Palmer, Dave Baylis, Deliese Mackay, James Hewlett, Lee Ironmonger, Roman Agafonov, Steven De coster.

Second prize went to Team Fishy Business, utilising the latest in Artificial Intelligence and image recognition to assist in the quality grading of King Salmon, currently a manual process that relies on human eye and judgement.

The concept the team developed and brought to life over the weekend is a combination of hardware and application that helps with the quality grading of Class A, B & C King Salmon.

The problem of incorrect classifications is a problem for New Zealand King Salmon. Within the weekend the team successfully came up with a method to recognise fish defects using a combination of technology. The team won $1,000 prize money for placing second in the event.
