    Team Brunei Adventurer emerged victor in the recent Brunei National Data Science competition, winning the judges over with their ‘Am I trendy enough?’ pitch.

    Team members Aida Amalin binti Muhammad Aimanuddin and Dayangku Amirah Najibah binti Pengiran Aliuddin, both from Universiti Brunei Darussalam’s (UBD) Faculty of Integrated Technologies (FIT) took home an USD800 cash prize.

    The ‘Am I trendy enough?’ project focusses primarily on the dangers of fast fashion and its effects on the globe and ASEAN. Data was corralled and analysed.

    As a solution, Team Brunei Adventurer proposed developing a ‘Price Tag’ application that employs data mining and image processing to identify fabric composition and deliver quick information about the clothing’s environmental impact.

    The application also provides a platform for businesses, users and sustainable fashion designers to promote sustainable fashion and raise awareness of fast fashion.

    Politeknik Brunei (PB) students Naj’Amira Aniza Awang Najman and Wafaa Yasira Awang Manja of Team Proud Bruneian ranked in second place with their ‘Shedding lights to rural areas’ submission, while Sufri Bolkiah Secondary School students Areesya Sharli and Irdine Huzaime of Team Aces ranked in third place with their ‘Affordable and clean energy’ contribution.

    Team Brunei Adventurer will represent Brunei Darussalam at the regional finals against other champion representatives from ASEAN member states, scheduled tentatively to be held in Phnom Penh from October 10-12.

    Ten groups of students from secondary schools and higher education institutions participated in the competition as part of the ASEAN Data Science Explorers (ASEAN DSE) competition organised by the ASEAN Foundation.

    This competition is accessible to ASEAN nationals between the ages of 15 and 30 who are enrolled full-time in educational institutions, which include high schools, polytechnics and universities based in the 10 ASEAN member nations.

    Each registered team, consisting of two students from the same ASEAN country, must use the SAP Analytics Cloud to generate data analytics storyboards/proposals (SAC). Using their data analytics storyboard, they then choose one issue from the six sustainable development goals (SDGs) to solve in ASEAN.
