Ninth grader (section 9M1) Mikhail Zelinsky's project "Personal financial control using an application" was a prize winner at the regional stage of the All-Russian Competition for Scientific and Technical Projects in Primorye.
Mikhail chose his topic together with his mentor Nikita Malyavin.
Developing the idea for an application that controls expenses is the second stage of the competition," Mikhail explains. "In the first stage, we had to deal with specific assigned tasks."
Before he began developing his own idea, Mikhail analyzed a range of existing financial platforms including Money Lover, CoinKeeper, Moneyon, Monefy, and Koshelek.
In Mikhail's opinion, these platforms are inconvenient to use and generally not sufficiently refined, so the market is open for a new product.
"It was interesting to work on the creation of artificial intellect, as well as the choice of words and criteria the application would use to function," says Mikhail. "I did research during my work on the application, and I am sure that mine will compete well with existing platforms."
"We congratulate Mikhail on his excellent result and hope that he will continue to expand his knowledge," comments ILS Deputy Principal Natalya Panchenko. "We will be most pleased if our graduates create useful new products."
