MSc Digital Marketing and Analytics students at Kent Business School, the University of Kent participated in a poster competition.
Students presented their posters to a panel from industry and academia. The winners of the competition designed AIbo, an artificial intelligence application for smart lenses to create a unique experience for solo travellers, the perfect travel buddy!
Runners up created LOCALLY, a personalised mobile tourist guide application to explore the Historic Dockyard in Chatham like a local, using augmented reality that enhances knowledge from local businesses and community.
Other business ideas put forward by the MSC Digital Marketing and Analytics included:
