Bondi Attacker Was Not Jewish Extremist Called Ben Cohen!

Was the Bondi Junction killer a Jewish extremist called Ben Cohen?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bondi Junction Killer Was Jewish Extremist Called Ben Cohen

Right after news broke about a man who stabbed and killed six people at Bondi Junction, some people immediately claimed or suggested that he was a Jewish extremist called Ben Cohen!

Thomas Sewell : First confirmed victim of the terror attack in Sydney is a White mother and her baby.

Media accidentally leaked the attackers name as “Benjamin Cohen”.

In the video you can clearly see he is Arab/Semite, so not surprised to find out he is jewish not muslim.

Thomas Sewell : I doubt this is a coincidence that Iran is attacking Israel today and I’d hazard a guess CSG (Mossad) in Sydney would be behind launching an attack.

Conservative Inc and jews all over twitter and MSM were quick to say this was an anti-semitic attack because it happened in bondi.

Truth : Bondi Junction Killer Was Not Jewish Extremist Called Ben Cohen

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Ben Cohen Is Not Bondi Junction Killer

Let me start by pointing out that Ben Cohen / Benjamin Cohen is not the Bondi Junction killer!

The real Bondi Junction killer has been identified as Joel Cauchi – a 40 year-old man from Toowoomba, Queensland. It was his family who contacted the police, after recognising him on the news.

Joel Cauchi lived a transient lifestyle, and travelled to Sydney in March 2024. At about 3:20 PM on 13 April 2024, Cauchi entered Westfield Bondi Junction and started stabbing people randomly with a knife, killing six people and injuring 12 others.

When police inspector Amy Scott confronted Fauci on the 5th floor, he lunged at her with a knife. She then shot him twice in his chest, and performed CPR on him after he collapsed. However, Joel Cauchi died on the scene.

To be clear – Joel Cauchi was the person who stabbed 18 people at Westfield Bondi Junction, killing 6 of them. Ben Cohen had nothing to do with the Bondi Junction stabbings!

Fact #2 : Benjamin Cohen Is Still Alive

I should also point out that the real Bondi Junction killer was shot dead by Inspector Amy Scott, whereas Ben Cohen / Benjamin Cohen is still alive, and well!

In fact, Ben Cohen – a 20 year-old first-year computing science student at the University of Technology, slammed claims that he was the one who stabbed those people at Westfield Bondi Junction.

His father, Mark, who lives with him, had to fend off those vicious rumours, and called on the New South Wales police to release the name of the real Bondi Junction killer.

Everyone’s asking what’s going on, people asking if it’s true. Of course it’s not true, he’s not even a politically motivated person. He’s just a normal kid who now has got to deal with this.

Hey NSW Police, you need to release the name of the Bondi junction attacker before this nonsense claiming it was my son causes more harm.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who claimed that Benjamin Cohen was the Jewish extremist who stabbed those people at Bondi Junction, ever provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #3 : Channel 7 Wrongly Identifies Ben Cohen As Bondi Junction Killer

Channel 7 News appears to be the first to claim that Ben Cohen was the Bondi Junction killer.

In a 5-minute video clip on its YouTube channel, Sunrise hose Matt Shirvington was interviewing security expert Scott Taylor outside Westfield Bondi Junction, with the chyron reading “Security expert Scott aylor joins Weekend Sunrise as new details are confirmed about the attacker, Benjamin Cohen, and his victims.

After Channel 7 News was contacted about the mistake, the video clip was quickly deleted, and a spokesperson said that it was “a human error”:

It was human error. The mistake has been rectified. Seven sincerely apologises for the error.

To be clear – Channel 7 News never claimed that Benjamin Cohen was a Jewish extremist. So it is most peculiar to see people immediately claiming or suggesting that he was a Jewish / Israeli extremist.

Needless to say, Ben Cohen found the whole experience of being falsely accused of murdering and injuring so many people “highly distressing”:

It’s extremely disappointing to me to see people mindlessly propagating misinformation like this without even the slightest thought put into fact checking.

But what’s even more disappointing to me is a major news network doing this, using my name without waiting for a statement from police to verify this or going out to try and verify it themselve

This whole incident has been highly distressing and disappointing for myself and my family. And it’s quite disappointing to see how eager people were to ‘bandwagon’ on and spread this type of (misinformation) like wildfire.

Was Bondi Junction Killer An Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant?!

Was the Bondi Junction killer an Islamic terrorist or a Muslim immigrant?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bondi Junction Killer Was Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant!

Right after news broke about a man who stabbed and killed six people at Bondi Junction, some people immediately claimed or suggested that he was an Islamic terrorist or a Muslim immigrant!

Mike Davis : An Islamic terrorist goes on a stabbing rampage in an Australian mall. Targeting women, children, and babies. And the men don’t have guns to stop him?

1. Repeal gun control. Arm up.

2. Deport unvetted fighting-aged men from countries that hate Christians and Jews. Smarten up.

Truth : Bondi Junction Killer Was Not Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Bondi Junction Killer Was From Queensland

Let me start by pointing out that the Bondi Junction killer was identified as Joel Cauchi – a 40 year-old man from Toowoomba, Queensland. It was his family who contacted the police, after recognising him on the news.

Joel Cauchi lived a transient lifestyle, and travelled to Sydney in March 2024. At about 3:20 PM on 13 April 2024, Cauchi entered Westfield Bondi Junction and started stabbing people randomly with a knife, killing six people and injuring 12 others.

When police inspector Amy Scott confronted Fauci on the 5th floor, he lunged at her with a knife. She then shot him twice in his chest, and performed CPR on him after he collapsed. However, Joel Cauchi died on the scene.

To be clear – Joel Cauchi was a native Australian, and not an immigrant. None of those who claimed that he was an immigrant actually provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #2 : Bondi Junction Attack Was Not Terror-Related

Not only was Joel Cauchi not an immigrant, there is no indication he is a Muslim, or even a terrorist of any kind. In fact, the police has stated that the attack was no terror-related.

There was also no report that Joel Cauchi screamed Allahu Akbar  (God is greater) as he stabbed people at Westfield Bondi Junction.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who claimed that Joel Cauchi was an Islamic terrorist, ever provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Recommended : Did Russia Arrest Rustam Azhiev For Moscow Attack?!

Fact #3 : Joel Cauchi Had Mental Health Problems

According to Queensland Police Assistant Commissioner Roger Lowe, Joel Cauchi was known to the police for mental health issues over the past four years, but had not been arrested or arrested for any offence.

He has not been prosecuted or arrested or charged for any offence within Queensland, and he has no record within the courts for a domestic violence order.

New South Wales police also dismissed links to terrorist ideologies, saying that Joel Cauchi acted alone, and had a history of mental health issues. It is believed that Joel Cauchi was suffering from schizophrenia when he stabbed random people (while ignoring others) at Westfield Bondi Junction.

He was first diagnosed with mental health issues when he was 17, but his mental health apparently declined in recent years. A neighbour at his childhood home told the media that Joel Cauchi had schizophrenia growing up.

They seem like a nice family with a nice house but he had schizophrenia growing up.

Needless to say – those who claimed that the Bondi Junction killer was an Islamic terrorist, or a Muslim immigrant, and not just a mentally-disturbed man.

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome From Vaccine Risk Explained!

Should you be alarmed about a reported 7X increase in Stevens-Johnson Syndrome / toxic epidermal necrolysis from COVID-19 and the vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Alarming 7X Increase In Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Linked To COVID-19 And Vaccine!

People are sharing an Epoch Times article, claiming that it is evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine can cause the dangerous Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) or toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN)!

Here is an excerpt of the Epoch Times article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

‘Alarming’ Sevenfold Increase in Steven-Johnson Syndrome Linked to COVID-19 and Vaccine

A sudden increase in Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS)—a rare and potentially fatal skin disorder—may be triggered by COVID-19, increased vaccination rates, or a lowered threshold caused by vaccines or previous infection, according to a large case series recently published in Burns.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome May Be Linked To COVID-19 And Vaccine

In this article, I will go through the Epoch Times article, and share with you what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Is An Immune System Disorder

First, let’s start with a quick overview of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN).

Both SJS and TEN are severe skin reactions caused by the body’s own immune system. They are classified as part of the same disease spectrum, with SJS being less severe (<10% body surface affected) and TEN being the most severe form (>30% body surface affected).

SJS / TEN usually occurs as a reaction to new medication or infection, with genetic factors making some people more vulnerable than others. It progresses fairly quickly:

  1. It usually starts with a fever, sore throat, cough and burning eyes for the first 1-3 days
  2. Then you may feel widespread skin pain, and a red or purple rash develops and spreads
  3. You will start to get blisters on your skin, and the ulcers of the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, eyes, and genitals
  4. The affected areas of your skin will start to blister, and eventually peel off

However, recovery takes much longer – skin regrowth takes 2-3 weeks, and full recovery often takes several months.

SJS has a mortality rate of about 5%, but TEN which has greater skin involvement has a mortality rate of 30% to 40%. So this is indeed a very serious disorder.

Fact #2 : Case Report Only Identified Possible Associations

The Epoch Times article is based on a case report published online in the journal Burns, called The seven-fold rise in incidence of Stevens-Johnson syndrome & toxic epidermal necrolysis: Associations with COVID-19 and the vaccine.

It is currently listed as an Uncorrected Proof, which means it still needs to be “proof-read and corrected by the author(s)”. But I personally don’t see anything troubling in the article – it is a case report and discussion on the 7X increase in SJS / TEN cases the authors saw in their hospital.

However, I should point out that this case report only refers to SJS / TEN cases seen in one hospital – the Concord Repatriation General Hospital in Sydney, Australia. That does not mean there is something wrong with the case report. It only means that this is one case report. More research is required before any association can be made.

The authors specifically pointed out that their study only identified three “theories” and “possible associations” for future research to look into:

This study identifies possible associations between COVID, the vaccine and the development of SJS/TEN.

We propose three theories for this seven-fold increase in case number; a virus induced, a vaccine induced and a threshold lowering pathway.

We advise future research investigates the impact viruses such as SARS-COV-2 have on immune mediated diseases such as SJS/TEN.

Recommended : Did CDC Say COVID Vaccines Cause AIDS + Cancer?!

Fact #3 : COVID-19 / Vaccine-Related SJS Only Increased By 2.67X

As Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is triggered by a new medication or infection, it is definitely possible for a COVID-19 infection, or vaccine, to cause it. However, it is important to note that SJS / TEN develops soon after the person gets infected, or receives the medication / vaccine.

That’s why the study authors look specifically at just 8 cases (out of 14) where the patients recently had a COVID-19 infection, or received a COVID-19 vaccine. The other 6 cases were not mentioned because they were likely caused by something else.

Because only those 8 cases were deemed to be potentially associated with COVID-19 or the vaccine, the actual increase over the baseline average of 3 cases for that hospital was 2.67x higher than normal, not 7X.

Fact #4 : SJS Risk Appears Higher For COVID-19 Infections

When we look at the breakdown of the eight patients whose SJS / TEN could have been caused by either COVID-19 infection or vaccine:

  • five patients had COVID-19 in the preceding month
  • three patients received a COVID-19 vaccine in the preceding month

Even if we assume that the SJS / TEN of all eight patients were indeed caused by COVID-19 or the vaccine, the results suggest that you are 33% more likely to get SJS / TEN with a COVID-19 infection, than with a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • COVID-19 infection : 2.67X risk over baseline
  • COVID-19 vaccine : 2X risk over baseline

Fact #5 : SJS / TENS Risk Is Still Very Low

Whether the risk of developing Stevens-Johnson Syndrome from a COVID-19 vaccine increases by 7X or just 2X, the risk is still very low.

By the end of 2022, New South Wales vaccinated over 6.5 million people. Taking into account that just three SJS / TENS cases were linked to the COVID-19 vaccine that year, the risk is only about 1 in 2.17 million!

Even if you assume that all 14 SJS / TEN cases (instead of just 3) were caused by the vaccine, that works out to just 1 in 464,286 vaccinated people. Still very rare.

Fact #6 : Unvaccinated People Have Developed SJS / TENS

The Epoch Times article took pains to point out that “Not a single case of SJS/TEN was reported in an unvaccinated individual.” That’s not surprising because 95% of New South Wales residents were fully-vaccinated by that point in time!

It would be wrong to believe that being unvaccinated means your risk of developing SJS / TEN is zero. Before COVID-19 vaccines were administered, doctors have already reported cases of Stevens-Johnson syndrome in unvaccinated COVID-19 patients:

And I should point out that before the COVID-19 pandemic, the incidence for people who never got infected or vaccinated was:

  • Stevens-Johnson syndrome : 1.6 cases per million people per year
  • Toxic epidermal necrolysis : 9.2 cases per million people per year

In other words, New South Wales alone would normally see about 13 cases of SJS, and 75 cases of TENS per year, before the COVID-19 pandemic and the vaccine!

Fact #7 : Risk Of SJS / TENS Much Higher With COVID-19 Infection

A December 2022 review looked at 34 published cases of SJS and TEN developing after COVID-19 infection and vaccination – 12 cases after vaccination, and 22 cases after infection.

Based on their review of the multiple case reports, their tally shows that the risk of getting SJS / TEN from a COVID-19 infection is 4-10X higher than the risk of getting it from any COVID-19 vaccine!

Fact #8 : Underreporting Of SJS / TEN Is Very Unlikely

While the Australian study never once mentioned VAERS (which is an American reporting system), the Epoch Times article took pains to claim that “historically, VAERS has been shown to report fewer than 1 percent of actual vaccine adverse events, which means other cases of SJS/TEN may have occurred but were unreported.

That “less than 1 percent” claim was based on a very old 2011 report (PDF download) on improving vaccine adverse event reporting to VAERS, based on data collected from June 2006 to October 2009. Needless to say – VAERS has improved significantly in the last 14 years!

More importantly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is such a severe and traumatising event for both doctor and patient, it is extremely unlikely to go unreported or under-reported.

Many people will probably not bother to report adverse events like muscle ache or a fever after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, but you can be sure they will rush to the hospital once their skin starts peeling off!

Fact #9 : The Epoch Times Appears To Be Promoting This

Interestingly, the Urchin Tracking Module (UTM) parameters at the end of some of these links suggest that The Epoch Times may be promoting the article through certain partners. For example:

Did Media Watch prove Covid patients are just actors?!

Did the Australian TV show, Media Watch, just prove that COVID-19 patients are just crisis actors hired to scare people into getting the vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Media Watch Proved COVID-19 Patients Are Just Actors!

People are sharing a video clip on WhatsApp and social media platforms like Twitter and TikTok, claiming that crisis actors were paid to scare people into getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

The video purportedly shows the Australian TV show, Media Watch, proving that COVID-19 patients are just crisis actors hired to scare people into getting the vaccine!

Stew Peters : Australia used CRISES ACTORS to spread Covid fear and push “vaccinations”.

SF Conservative PATRIOT : They LIED about everything. #CovidActors helped to do their dirty work.

I Stand For Freedom : Those heartbreaking stories you heard on the news early in the pandemic were mostly all LIES! They were paid Crisis/COVID actors who the GOVT & MSM paid to come on your TV & scare the shit out of you so you would inject yourself with a medical experiment. You pissed yet?

Recommended : Did Mossad Just Admit NATO Is Losing Ukraine War?!

 

Truth : Media Watch Proved COVID-19 Patients Were NOT Actors!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and/or promoted by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was From September 2021

While the video clip is going viral in June 2023, it originally went viral several times in the past, starting around October 2021.

That’s because the video clip was originally aired by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s show, Media Watch, on September 9, 2021.

Fact #2 : Video Was Edited For A Different Conclusion

The video is genuine, but was edited to deliver a completely different conclusion.

In the video, Paul Barry started the segment by discussing rumours that health authorities in New South Wales employed crisis actors to impersonate COVID-19 patients, to push the vaccination campaign.

After showing clips of three Concord Hospital patients in Sydney testifying about their fight with COVID-19, Barry said:

But soon, people on social media were wondering if the New South Wales video was actually a fake.

Yes, all three, including Ramona, were supposedly paid crisis actors, who did not have Covid at all

The video cuts right after it shows a TikTok video in which an “Internet sleuth” called the hospital and found out that Ramona Khoury was not a patient at the hospital.

That’s because like our fact check articles, Paul Barry started by telling his viewers what the fake news was, before debunking it.

What the fake news creator did was cut the video to only show you the first part, and cut out the rest of the segment which shows Paul Barry debunking the claims.

Recommended : Are Nazis From Japan Fighting For Ukraine?!

Fact #3 : Media Watch Proved COVID-19 Patients Were Not Actors

In the full segment of the Media Watch video (watch here), Paul Barry debunked the claims that the three patients in the video were crisis actors.

So is Ramona a crisis actor pretending to have Covid for New South Wales Health? No, of course she’s not.

As New South Wales Health made clear, the patient’s name is not Ramona Khoury, but Ramona El-Nachar who is a pharmacy worker.

[screen shows a photo comparison of Ramona El-Nachar, and Ramona Khoury]

And as you can clearly see, they are two different people, despite the fact that they both are women, and both have dark hair.

And as for [the] two male patients, we are happy to tell you that they are not crisis actors either.

Media Watch then shows one of the male patients, Osama Ahmad, was wrongly identified as actor Mitch Garling, who posted an Instagram video saying that he was not Osama Ahmad:

Turns out that people are using my photo and my StarNow profile saying that I’m an actor sitting in a hospital pretending to have Covid.

Look, I am an actor, but not pretending to have Covid. Not that. It doesn’t even look like me, he has a beard, that’s it.

Fact #4 : Media Watch Called Viral Video “Absurd”

Media Watch executive producer Timothy Latham labelled the edited video clip which keeps going viral on social media as “absurd and deliberately misleading“.

The reason we did the story in the first place was to kill off this idiotic suggestion.

It’s an insult to Concord Hospital and the brave patients who spoke out about the reality of contracting Covid-19.

Did Dr Chad Hazouri Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did prominent Sydney cosmetic dentist Dr Chad Hazouri die suddenly from vaccine SADS?!

Take a look at the viral claims about his sudden death, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Dr Chad Hazouri Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Dr Chad Hazouri died suddenly and unexpectedly, people immediately claimed that the prominent Sydney cosmetic dentist died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS!

Mid-50s? Far too young… #vaccine ? #VaccineSideEffects ?
#VaccineDeath #vaccinegenocide

Another young person dies from taking the poison jab. How many more are going to die before we stand up to the world gvt and what they have done to us

JABB GOT ANOTHER ONE.. “SADS”

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Dr Chad Hazouri Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Unknown How / When Dr Chad Hazouri Died

Dr Chad Hazouri (born Charbel El Hazouri in 1966) was a prominent cosmetic dentist and injectables expert in Sydney, Australia, who developed his own Precise Aligners orthodontic system.

It is unknown precisely when or how Dr Hazouri died, only that his friends started posting condolences on Facebook on Monday, February 20, 2023.

From I can determine, Dr. Hazouri was about 56-57 years old when he died, and is survived by his wife, Kylie Hazouri, and two daughters, Lauren Hazouri and Jade Hazouri.

A celebration of his life was held from 6-9 PM on Tuesday, February 21 at 63 Parkes Street, West Ryde, Sydney, Australia. He was laid to rest on Saturday morning, February 25, 2023.

Fact #2 : Dr Chad Hazouri’s Cause Of Death Not Revealed

The cause of death for Dr Chad Hazouri is currently not publicly revealed. His family and friends made no mention of how or why he died.

Dr Hazouri could have died suddenly from any number of reasons – a heart attack, a car accident, a stroke, suicide, a fall, etc. So it would be wrong and disrespectful for anyone to claim, without evidence, that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

However, the fact that Dr Chad Hazouri was laid to rest so soon, and that there was no mention of an autopsy, suggest that the cause and manner of his death was not suspicious in any way.

Read more : Did Ryan Keeler Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Dr Chad Hazouri Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Dr Chad Hazouri was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Australia, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Dr Chad Hazouri received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Dr Chad Hazouri was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean he died from the COVID-19 vaccine, as he would have received his doses many months ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Doctors Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of doctor deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here are a few examples I fact checked in the past.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next doctor tragedy…

SUFECS – Imagine Cup Asia 2019 People’s Choice Winner!

Team Caeli from India may have won the 2019 Imagine Cup Asia, but another team stood out from the crowd of truly excellent teamsTeam SUFECS from Malaysia. In fact, they impressed Microsoft Ignite Sydney participants so much, they gave the team an award!

Find out what the SUFECS project is all about, and why the team won the Microsoft Ignite People’s Choice Award!

Updated @ 2019-02-25 : Added a new video of Team SUFECS’s pitch at the Imagine Cup Asia 2019, with additional details on the SUFECS system.

Originally posted @ 2019-02-20

 

Team SUFECS From UTHM, Malaysia

The SUFECS team was formed by four students from Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM).

  • Seah Choon Sen : Team Leader & Data Scientist
  • Tan Wei Yang : Technology Developer
  • Mek Zi Cong : Operations
  • Muhammad Adam bin Mazlan : Web Developer

 

What Is SUFECS All About?

Short for Smart Urban Farming with Automated Environmental Controlled System, SUFECS was developed to make urban farming easier and more accessible to both entrepreneurs and the common people.

Built to automate hydroponic vertical farming, it will continuously monitor and automatically adjust critical environmental parameters to ensure optimal growth. To do that, this enterprising team leveraged IoT devices, cloud computing and machine learning.

  • Multiple electronic sensors monitor conditions within the hydroponic system
  • A control module sends the environmental parameters to Microsoft Azure for processing and logging
  • Deviations from optimal conditions are automatically detected and corrected

The team has demonstrated that SUFECS does not only make it easy for anyone to grow their own crops in an urban, indoor environment, they are able to significantly speed up growth, reducing the time between planting and harvest.

They also showed that SUFECS has successfully increased the size of the plant, and the yield of the crops. This means their system will not only make it easier to setup and maintain an urban hydroponic farm of any size, it will create bigger and better crops.

 

What Can SUFECS Monitor & Control?

SUFECS is currently able to monitor and control six environmental parameters :

  • ambient temperature,
  • water temperature,
  • humidity level,
  • water level,
  • pH value, and
  • ambient light.

It will also monitor plant height, and alert you when it is ready for harvest.

The team is working to add the ability to monitor and control two additional environmental parameters 

  • electrical conductivity
  • dissolved oxygen level

The team has, so far, developed datasets for five different plant types using machine learning.

 

SUFECS Wins People’s Choice Award @ Microsoft Ignite Sydney

Microsoft held the Microsoft Ignite Sydney a day after Imagine Cup Asia, where they showcased the projects of the top 12 Asian teams.

At the end of Ignite, Team SUFECS received the most vote, and won the People’s Choice Award! Congratulations!

Microsoft Ignite 2019 @ Sydney – A Quick Tour!

Microsoft Ignite 2019 is here in Sydney! It was sold out, of course, but we managed to get a ticket.

So here is our quick tour for everyone else who could not make it, but wanted to see what it’s all about!

 

Microsoft Ignite 2019 @ Sydney

The Microsoft Ignite 2019 @ Sydney is a Microsoft tech conference for developers and tech professionals. For two days, it offers skill-building workshops, networking opportunities and access to top Microsoft engineers. No wonder tickets were quickly sold out!

For developers and tech professionals who want to learn how to better leverage Microsoft’s cloud services, the 2019 Microsoft Ignite is a rare opportunity to learn directly from those who build Power BI, Microsoft 365, and Azure.

  • Building your Applications for the Cloud – Learn how to architect and build your applications to take advantage of the scale that the cloud offers.
  • Deploying your Desktop & Infrastructure – Discover how to begin your journey to the cloud and what steps you need to both move your infrastructure and deploy your desktop.

Microsoft Ignite 2019 @ Sydney : A Quick Tour!

Microsoft Ignite 2019 @ Sydney was held in the International Convention Center Sydney (ICC Sydney) over two days – 13th and 14th February 2019. Yes, even on Valentine’s Day. These are truly dedicated professionals!

The Microsoft Ignite 2019 @ Sydney covered two halls, as well as several lecture halls. In our quick tour, we take a look at the Hub, where participants get to interact directly with Microsoft professionals and their partners.

Note : We intentionally recorded our tour while most participants were inside the lecture halls for the workshops. Otherwise, the halls would be swarmed with people, making it difficult for us to record our tour.

 

The 2019 Imagine Cup Asia Showcase

As the 2019 Imagine Cup Asia concluded a day earlier, Microsoft also took the opportunity to showcase the projects of the 12 top Asian teams.

We highly recommend you check out what these young entrepreneurs came up with this year. Be inspired by their creativity!
