Challenge 2023

The 4th Industrial Revolution is all about digital transformation and making our factories really smart places.
This can be achieved by integrating all physical and digital information of the production process and by developing connected and self-aware devices that are capable of sharing information about their operational health, location, usage level, storage conditions, etc.

With the Transatlantic AI Hackathon 2023, we encourage you to become part of the digital transformation of our industry and to contribute your ideas and innovations. Just think about how robots in combination with smart cameras can make manufacturing environments more efficient, more predictable, more reliable as well as simply faster and safer.

Participants are invited to create solutions that leverage the capabilities of AI-enabled cameras and IoT devices to optimize processes and improve decision-making in manufacturing, logistics, and other Industry 4.0 sectors. Solutions should be designed to run on the edge, leveraging the processing power and data storage capabilities of these devices to enable real-time decision-making and action. This can include identifying bottlenecks in the process, predicting maintenance needs, and optimizing the use of resources, and more.

Hackathon
Supporting events

Examples of what your AI-based system can accomplish in industrial environments when using AI-enabled cameras and IoT devices:

  • Optimize industrial processes and operations
  • Monitor and control processes or alert operators to potential problems
  • Detect and classify objects
  • Analyze data to identify trends and patterns
  • Facilitate predictive and preventative maintenance
  • Predict and prevent potential downtime or safety issues
  • Enhance security and safety
  • Prevent collisions between workers and machines
  • Identify defects in a production line
  • Improve quality control and traceability
  • Increase overall efficiency and productivity

Your creativity is needed more than ever to bring new ideas to reality.
The Transatlantic AI Hackathon – Smart Industry • Transforming Manufacturing calls for your solutions!

Registration Deadline: April 2, 2023, midnight
