Alumni in Action
The fundamental intention behind the week of the HLF is clear: Provide a selection of the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science the space and time to make connections and inspire each other. At times, those connections will create ripples that flow into collaborations and projects, with some of those efforts leading to concrete developments. In order to showcase these inspirational stories, the HLFF Spotlight series was created. Through interviews or brief video documentaries, find out how alumni have utilized the diverse programs available to develop their careers.
HLF alumni of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta in Nigeria developed a tracker that was tested on free range animals at the university farm. Their project, "Design, Deployment and Adoption of an Intelligent Animal Monitoring and Tracking System for Pasture and Range Management (NIMTrack)”, received essential funding from the HLF alumni platform AlumNode. Findings were presented to local farmers during a workshop in February 2020, where the tracker’s potential to inhibit animal rustling was made evident.
