NDO - A human body modelling application using virtual reality technology designed by Duy Tan University has won first prize in the 2017 Vietnamese Talent Award given annually to products in the information technology sector.

The winning VR-based application creates anatomical models of all human organ systems, and will be a useful tool in health science education.

Two second prizes were awarded to DoIT, a system which helps improve the quality of documents, and RadaRada, an app which connects consumers with repairers of home appliances, motorbikes, and other miscellaneous things.

The third prizes were given to four products including giasan.vn, an online service providing property market data analysis; CyberAPT, a product countering advanced persistent threats; CAMPUS, a student-connecting app; and GOnJOY, a virtual assistant for entertainment and catering services.

There were also awards for community development and four consolation prizes.

In addition to the main prizes for IT products, organisers of the Vietnamese Talent Awards also honour talents in other fields, including the environment, medicine, and engineering.

Speaking at the award ceremony on November 16, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recited an inscription from a stone stele at the Temple of Literature in Hanoi, saying that talented people are the vitality of a nation.

He highlighted the role of the award which, over the past 13 years, has encouraged thousands of talents regardless of age to work diligently on useful new IT products, as well as initiating a movement of learning and creativity throughout the country.

On this occasion, the PM called on scientists and researchers to continue learning and working incessantly to develop creative products that bear out the intellect of the Vietnamese people.
