We are a team comprising of 8 third-year students (2015/2016) in the Imperial Electrical Engineering Department, who are teaming up with IBM members, including Senior Inventor Jon McNamara, to create a cognitive machine and send it on a journey to the edge of space. The majority of our team study Electrical and Electronic Engineering, whilst two of our members study Electronic and Information Engineering, with more of an academic focus on programming.
