About AI HackDays
Why Hack Days
AI Hack Days are fun, free events designed for everyone with an interest in Artificial Intelligence. With experts on hand to help out, beginners can learn the basics and get their hands dirty with their first bots. Folks who are more experienced with AI are still just as likely to learn something new, as well getting the opportunity to mingle with other devs and share their own ideas and discoveries.
Each AI Hack Day begins with a series of short presentations from experts who have volunteered their time to come along and spread the AI love. The experts will cover the basics you need to succeed at the next part: the coding.
During the presentations, the experts will lay out a few challenges for you to attempt. Just choose which challenge you want to work on, and spend the rest of the time hacking away at an AI solution. You can work alone, or in a team, and if at any point you get stuck, the experts will be on hand to help you out.
Toward the end of the day, attendees are asked to share what they’ve made, and the experts will evaluate them, and declare a winner (or three). Prizes vary between events, but the greatest prize of all is the same everywhere: bragging rights.
Behind the Hack Days
AI Hack Days were conceived by SSW, the same folks behind Xamarin and Angular Hack Days. We want to share our passion for creating great web apps while ensuring that fellow AI-lovers are prepared for the upcoming changes.
