What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is an event that gathers people with a diverse set of skills (programming, design, entrepreneurs) to solve a real problem within a limited amount of time. Our teen hacks run on weekends, 9-6 pm.
CALLING ALL TEENS AGED 12-18!
JOIN US FOR A 9 DAY EVENT OF FUN AND LEARNING ABOUT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.
SOLVE A REAL PROBLEM AND CHANGE THE WORLD.
YES, IT TAKES ONLY ß DAYS TO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR GOOD.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
We use Artificial Intelligence all day, every day. Siri, Alexa, and Cortana are obvious examples of artificial intelligence, but AI is actually all around us. It can be found in vacuum cleaners, cars, lawnmowers, video games, Hollywood special effects etc..
But how does AI really work and WHY should it matter?
Join our unique bootcamp and develop your own entrepreneurial project surrounded by the best of the Tech sphere!
[DESIGN THINKERS, TECH MENTORS AND ENTREPRENEURS – PLEASE REGISTER TOO!! We need you to help inspire the participants]
