    Ireland's First AI Hackathon. 18-19th Feb

  • IRELANDS FIRST AI HACKATHON

    Join us to connect, learn, hack and build. Two full days in Dublin to experiment with the application of intelligent technologies. Participants can attend as an individual or team and we expect skill sets to be varied.

     

    We'll have experts in AI-related fields there to mentor throughout the two days if you need support, there'll also be real world use cases presented to guide you in applying these intelligent technologies.

     

    As this is an open hack you can decide to focus within an industry (finance, healthcare, cyber) or across the emerging technology landscape (AR/VR/IOT). Workshops will give APIs/dataset briefings.

     

    There's plenty of time to share ideas and learn new skills with other participants, plus free food, coffee and snacks. Lunchtimes should be about fun + food.. we'll have Microsoft Hololens, Oculus Rift and Drones on site.

    WHERE: TCD Innovation Academy.

    FOR WHO: Data Scientists, researchers, engineers, developers (beginners/intermediate/advanced).
