Three students from the Computer Science Department: Omkar Acharya, Akshay Mendki and Ankitkumar Vaghela won the 3rd prize at "HackGSU Spring 2018", a Hackathon event organized by Georgia State University and Major League Hackathon. The competition was held from 23rd to 25th March and had 233 students from different universities across the nation.
They developed a carpooling application called 'Ride-Share' for Amazon Alexa. The application allows drivers to share their ride by registering it on Ride-Share. The riders can search and select their choice of ride and get the contact information of the driver. This application can be deployed on any Alexa enabled devices.
