Organized by: Leaner Startups
Host: Kyle Martinez
Attention Seattle! We're thrilled to announce our third AI hackathon event, taking place on Sunday, May 21st at the SURF Incubator in downtown Seattle.
This is not your average hackathon - we welcome participants from all backgrounds and levels of experience. Whether you're a developer, entrepreneur, designer, or just someone with a passion for AI, this event is for you!
Join us for a day of innovation, learning, and collaboration as we explore the limitless possibilities of AI and its potential to transform industries and improve people's lives.
We are grateful for the support of our partners at SURF Incubator and Leaner Startups, who have helped make this event possible. Be sure to check them out!
You'll start the day by forming a team with other participants - no prior team or idea needed! You'll brainstorm ideas for an AI product and then spend most of the day building a proof-of-concept. Keep in mind that all work on your project must be completed at the hackathon. At the end of the day, each team will present their project to a panel of judges, and there will be an awards ceremony to select the winners.
We will also be offering AI workshops to help your team better understand how to harness the power of AI in your projects.
In addition to networking with your peers, you'll have the opportunity to interact with Seattle's leading venture capitalists and people and organizations who are working on the cutting edge of AI.
The schedule for the event is not set in stone and can change anytime before the event.
Get checked in and network with your fellow peers. Meet potential team members and discuss different ideas.
We'll kick things off with a presentation covering introductions, judges & prizes, and timing for the day.
It's time to start hacking! During this time, mentors will be available to assist teams in developing their ideas. We will host a "speed pitch" round for participants still looking for a team.
Enjoy a delicious lunch (pending sponsors) and swap ideas with your team.
Get ready for the final presentations with a session focused on perfecting your pitch. Receive feedback from mentors and get ready to impress the judges.
All projects must be completed at this time. The first round of presentations begins. Judges will send the winners to the final round.
It's time to show off your hard work! Finalists will present their solutions to a panel of judges and compete for prizes and recognition.
Celebrate the day's successes with a closing awards ceremony and networking session. Meet new people, exchange contact information, and continue the conversation beyond the hackathon.
The event will officially end at this time. We hope participants will leave inspired with new ideas and a better understanding of artificial intelligence.
There will be two rounds of judging. The initial round will consist of a 3 minute pitch by every team in front of all attendees and judges. The judges will select the 5 best ideas to be promoted to the final round. In the final round, each team will have 5 minutes to answer the judges' questions and make any last impressions before the judges vote on the top 3 teams to win the hackathon.
Projects will be judged across 5 dimensions:
The SURF incubator is a perfect space for this event, providing plenty of desks, conference rooms, and office space to spread out and work on your idea with your team. We thank the SURF team for donating their space for this event.
