Overview

Use AI APIs and Libraries to create something useful and deployable. Join our online community, attend our events, hack off-site.

Our hackathon spans several months and you hack off-site. Off-site can mean at home, in the library, in a cafe, at your day job...etc. You connect with other members and hackathon expert level mentors through our online Slack community. You also submit your work for judging via our online community. We will have three face-to-face events: a meet and great night (8th August 2019), a mid-hackathon catch-up (19th September 2019) and a presentation night (10th October 2019). The topic of the hackathon is to build something useful and deployable with AI APIs and Libraries. Begin!

  • You may choose to collect and/or use people's private data. Keep it secure and respect people's privacy.
  • Obey the law. An act of particular interest is the privacy act.
  • Your team's submission must be your team's work. No plagiarism.
  • Be nice to everyone involved. You are on show professionally.
