    At Baruch College in New York City, IBM and the City University of New York (CUNY) announced the top three winning teams of a student app competition with the best innovative ideas for how IBM Watson technology can help New York City and higher education. Student winners receive cash prizes and a chance to work at CUNY business incubator. This competition is the latest example of IBM fueling an ecosystem of innovators and providing students with an opportunity to learn about next generation technology. Student finalists sparked creative ideas, envisioning Watson-powered apps that could help city social workers better serve children and families by analyzing patterns; create a more efficient 311 system staffed by virtual agents and aided by predictive analysis; and an automated advisor for undergraduates and college counselors that will help identify and schedule ideal courses.
