Smart Factory Hackathon: ||coding for Audi’s prolongation of a future

With their specialized believe of several subjects ‑ including IT, mathematics, business administration or communication pattern ‑ participants in a Smart Factory Hackathon will take on real‑life tasks from a areas of prolongation and logistics in groups of three to five persons. With a use of anonymized information sets, they will work out solutions and beget genuine concentration cases. They will have 25 hours to do so, as a sign of Audi’s 25th hour – a extra hour that drivers will benefit in a destiny with unconstrained cars. The participants will be means to deliberate Audi production and IT experts for advice. The tasks will concentration on a pivotal issues of big data, machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence. “Together with students and immature professionals, we incite some radical ideas with a Smart Factory Hackathon. This formula in totally new approaches to formidable problems. The thought of a Hackathon is to jointly exercise a prototypes that are grown in reality,” explains a organizer of a competition, Kathrin Schwinghammer.

The first day of a eventuality starts with an introduction to a Hackathon tasks and an particular debate of a plant that is blending accordingly. The starting vigilance for a Hackathon will be given a subsequent day. After a 25 hours, a jury will consider a due solutions in terms of their technical methodology, implementation, combined value and potential. The teams will afterwards make brief pitches of their ideas to a open and a jury. These pitches will also have an outcome on a final assessment. The rankings of a jury and a open will have equal weightings in determining a winner.

The premiere of a Audi Smart Factory Hackathon in October 2016 was a good success. 16 teams from all over a universe took partial and grown program solutions for a bureau of a destiny within 24 hours. Audi is now following adult about two thirds of a ideas and gradually integrating them in prolongation in team-work with a teams. One example is a thought of a winning group in 2016, Happy Unicorns. The Austrians grown a complement for enclosure government that allows a programmed recognition, counting and sequence of ride containers, and they are now implementing it together with their association as an Audi supplier.

For all artistic minds that have some knowledge with coding and would like to take on new challenges: Applications for a Audi Smart Factory Hackathon 2017 can be submitted until September 1, a series of participants is limited.
