The technology and consulting multinational Glintt organizes on October 11 and 12 the Hacking Health, taking place in Cais da Rocha do Conde de Óbidos, Lisbon. The goal is to create teams of three to four people who are able to build a working prototype on one of the technology challenges released by Microsoft, Oracle and Outsystems, which make their technology available.
With applications open until 30 September for Glintt university students and employees, teams will be able to choose between developing solutions using machine learning, chatbots & analytics or mobile & web technologies.
In a statement, the director of Inov Solutions at Glintt explains that this hackathon is in line with the company's strategy and is intended to "deepen the culture of collaborating with universities and partners."
It will be through the Taikai platform that teams will be able to enter the challenge, present their projects and, through blockchain technology, see their solutions voted by the jury with the virtual currency “KAI”. For Taikai founder and CEO, the platform "emerges as a facilitator of the entire process and ensures its transparency".
The 18-hour development marathon kicks off on October 11 and during the day participants will have immersion, development and pitch preparation sessions. The winners will be known at dawn the next day and the final prize is 3,000 euros.
