James Gosling, the father of Java, gave a group of UP computer science students an award for having the most innovative use of Java technology in the category of Medical Solutions last week at San Francisco in the 2008 Duke's Choice Award.

The award-winning project was Expert System for Poisoining also called the Project ESP. The project is a tool to diagnose and to help treat poisoning. The user enters signs and symptoms observed in a patient, and the system outputs a list of matching poisoning types and possible treatments for the medical attendant to use.

The 2008 Dukes Choice Award is an annual event that recognizes the best and the most innovative use of Java Technology. The Java technology leadership team -- including James Gosling, known as the father of Java technology -- selects the winners based on the creativity of the Java technology-based applications and services.
