Virtual Hackathon for Good Artificial Intelligence

DATE:Saturday, October 10, 2020 – Tuesday, November 3, 2020
VENUE:Online - Virtual

In April 2020, the average life satisfaction of Europeans, which is consistently at the top of the scale of well-being, fell to its lowest level since 1980. Health and well-being for all age groups are at the heart of sustainable development, which has been broadly defined in the UN Agenda 2030 action plan for sustainable development for people, the planet and prosperity. The linking of healthcare and technology is one of the greatest success stories of our time. However, some of the old challenges (infectious diseases, nutrition) still exist, others are new (fake news, processed foods, sedentary lifestyles). The potential of artificial intelligence for good, especially in the field of health and well-being, is groundbreaking.

The virtual Hackathon for good AI, which runs between 10 and 25 October 2020 under the topic “The Health of the Individual and Society” is open to pupils between the 5th and 11th grade. Participants do not need any previous knowledge in programming to participate in this Hackathon. As assistance, experts from different areas will give advice, tricks, information and learning materials for the Hackathon 4GoodAI in recorded two-minute explanatory videos #How2Hack. The deadline for the submission of solutions to the programming task is November 25, 2020. The best teams will be awarded cash prizes from the 4000 EUR fund.
