Inspiring Youths To Solve For Tomorrow

Another innovative solution we saw at this year’s competition was DeafSpeak, a programme specially designed to aid hearing-impaired children in learning and development by team JBSamsung.

Two computer science undergraduates from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Zhang Zhi Yao and Hu Jia Jun, were motivated to level the playing field for those with special needs after learning about the challenges that their hearing-impaired classmate faced in education and in befriending peers when he was younger. This set the duo on their journey to develop DeafSpeak.
