WHAT? An AI SUPER HACKATHON!

Why AI ?

Today, AI is one of the most active and promising application domain in the computer science field. Thanks to data analysis, it can help us face many challenges in our society, such as in healthcare, or environmental issues.

The ICC takes place in the heart of the Idiap Research Institute, one of the most active independent research center in AI and information technology. Its activities encompass research, training, and technology transfer activities following a common vision: Artificial Intelligence for Society.

Why SUPER ?

Take part in one of the most intense hackathon ever held in the field of AI.

While other regular hackathons last only a few days, our AI Super Hackathon offers 9 days of intense development on-site. You will go further and deeper in your achievement to create a working demo or prototype of your idea.

Only the best ideas are selected and get the chance to participate in this challenge.
