HACKAITHON - kick off your AI project
Do you have a project in which you would like to use Artificial Intelligence to help people with disabilities or to protect our environment? Do you need help kick starting the project, want to meet with AI consultants or get technical resources from Microsoft?
Enlist your project to HACKAITHON!
We are looking for nonprofits, startups as well as informal groups who are trying to use AI in following fields:
- Accessibility: projects helping with employment, daily life tasks or communication and connection of people with disabilities
- Earth: projects dealing with sustainable agriculture, biodiversity, protection of water resources or climate change
Your projects should already have a basic structure and you should know what you would like to achieve by using AI. We will help you kick off the project or find consultants for both business and technical aspects of your project. These projects can also gain additional support with adapting the AI technologies from Microsoft. They offer technological grants in their AI for Good program and we will help you with applying.
The HACKAITHON event is held in cooperation with Microsoft as we aim to support together projects leveraging AI for social good and thus showing how can the most modern technologies be beneficial to our society.
