EmergenTech 2020

Date: February 21, 2020 - 5:00pm to 5:00pm
Location: San Tan Club, Sun Devil Stadium

This February 21-23rd, come take part in the first hackathon at Sun Devil Stadium, EmergenTech. An event centered around multiple challenges, participants will not be restricted by what they can create. All ASU students are welcome to participate, collaborate, and learn from each other. Registration is complimentary, and there will be free food, prizes, and swag.

To compete, students should be familiar with or eager to learn with one of the following fields:

-Machine Learning
-Computer Science
-Cloud Computing
-Business Analytics & Modeling

Student teams will be given 36 hours to design and develop a protoype from the topics of virtual reality, machine learning, blockchain, and internet of things to apply to the industries of education, government, healthcare, or international development. Student teams of 2-5 can either be assembled ahead of time or will be matched at the start of the event. To be considered competitive, teams will need to formulate a pitch and prototype that will be judged by technical merits, design, and concept feasibility. Furthermore, the student models will need to display predicted tags alongside the video in a novel way which improves the user experience.

Students will have a chance to network with industry representatives. In addition to the knowledge acquired by students competing in the challenges, workshops will be facilitated throughout the event to teach students the skills necessary to be competitive.

Prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place teams. More details around the prizes are to come.

Any ASU students, undergraduate- and graduate-level are invited to participate.
