Perlin has launched its AI 4 All Global Hackathon in partnership with India’s NITI Aayog (National Institution for Transforming India) and PT Telkom, Indonesia’s largest telecom company. The Hackathon is open for developers, students, start-ups and companies in India.
The move by Perlin will help the participants of the Hackathon to make a positive social and economic impact towards the country.
The announcement was made by Perlin at the AI 4 ALL Conference in Mumbai on November this year. The event was co-hosted by ORF, Observer Research Foundation and NITI.
The Hackathon will help the Indian government to look in the country’s AI future and provide ways to carry out efficient utilization of the country’s fast growing national computing infrastructure.
In August this year, NITI Aayog has launched its first Hackathon, ‘Move Hack’. In the event, more than 2,000 submissions were received out of which only the best teams were awarded.
In the latest Hackathon event by Perlin, there will be two stages. The first stage will end on January 19, 2019 and the second stage will include the shortlisted participants from stage one, and will end on March 15, 2019.
In stage 1, the participants will have to showcase use cases of multi-party computation in different field’s like financial inclusion, education, healthcare, agriculture and urbanization. Once stage 1 is over, the shortlisted participants will present the ideas in a more matured and developed manner in order to preserve AI‘s and distributed computing’s privacy.
Winner of the event can bag pool prizes worth $50,000 and win a mentorship as well.
