Real world challenge

An image taken with a smartphone contains more than 12 million pixels that are building blocks of information. Essentially, images are data visualisations and a digital image is a big data set in itself. With the right algorithms we can extract this information from images and generate meaningful data for machine learning and artificial intelligence.

We believe image intelligence can help generate meaningful data for customers on their machines and help them take proactive actions.


How to win

There are three categories of prizes:

  • #1 Best Hack – awarded to the team that solves the real world problem the best
  • #2 Best Build – awarded to the team that builds the most deployable solution
  • #3 Participation – all teams will get a prize to celebrate their commitment and passion
