HackRPI’s 6th annual 24-hour hackathon will help attendees develop their skills, explore new technologies, and turn their curiosities and visions into opportunities.
Looking to inspire and challenge innovators, developers, creators, and entrepreneurs in New York's Tech Valley and beyond, HackRPI’s 6th annual 24-hour hackathon will help attendees develop their skills, explore new technologies, and turn their curiosities and visions into opportunities.
Staying true to our mantra "why not change the world?", we're excited to introduce special tracks in Natural Disaster and Mitigation, Artificial Intelligence, and Accessibility in Education to tackle current problems in tech facing our world today.
Natural Disaster and Mitigation
Create an idea that helps first responders and/or civilians tackle the problems around identification of disasters and mitigating risks to build a sustainable society. You can even explore the idea of creating a solution that helps to address health and well-being.
Create a game-changing invention in the field of AI, including but not limited to speech recognition, decision-making, visual percep-tion, and translating languages. When it comes to innovations in AI, the sky’s the limit.
Accessibility in Education
Create an idea that improves the way education is accessed in some way. Recognizing the moral obligation to build a more conducive and inclusive education system will, in turn, create an ecosystem of a well-educated, skilled workforce that can build and grow companies and contribute to a better tech future.
