The dust after NVIDIA Jetson™ Developer Challenge slowly settles down, the emotions are being contained, the last minute adrenaline rush is over. This, however, does not mean it’s time to close the book and don’t look back. We’ve interviewed the finalists to get more insight into the challenge from their perspective, as it’s their point of view that matters the most. If you are to participate in a similar event you will want to know exactly how it feels. But why would you want to do that in the first place?
NVIDIA along with ChallengeRocket.com has organized a brilliant online challenge focused on use of Artificial Intelligence in solutions that benefit all of us in fields like security, healthcare, or education, the NVIDIA Jetson™ Developer Challenge. This case study will highlight the most interesting projects submitted to the hackathon in question with the intention of shedding the light on the potential that lies in AI, as well as importance of organizing similar events.
“Hackathon” still sounds unfamiliar to you? It fascinates you a bit, but you are equally afraid of coming to one? One may say that hackathons can be compared to a coloring competition between adults to see who comes out with the most creative sustainable solution to the posed problem. So don’t be shy! Use your ideas and crayons! Usually there is no problem with assembling teams at the beginning of a hackathon, but bringing friends with you will certainly help to control fear and just derive joy from event! Attending one such event will prove extremely beneficial and leave you with a feeling of fulfillment, and we’ll go over that later in this piece.
After the NVIDIA Jetson Developer Challenge we’ve had a chance to ask the team behind the TITUS project some questions. Ayman Saleh is a Robotics Engineering student, while Khalid Khalil field of study is Computer Science, both are just 20 years old. They won second place in the competition. Let’s see what they had to say.
Hackathons are for anyone who is interested in technology. If you daydream of making an application, a website or even a toy, there is probably a hackathon out there for you. There is a misconception that you need to be a coder to attend hackathons. It’s not true. Programmers, marketers, graphic designers, project managers or any tech enthusiasts can attend. A hackathon is a great place for like-minded people to come together and implement new ideas.
Recently we’ve had a chance to ask Amit Kharwandikar a few questions. Aged 21 he was a participant of the NVIDIA Jetson™ Developer Challenge who was responsible for building and development of AVITRA - Reconnaissance Robot which received the Public Choice Award. It was undoubtedly one of the most interesting projects submitted to the challenge and so we couldn’t be happier to get more insight into how its creator went about preparation to and participation in the challenge.
Have you ever wondered what’s the recipe for success in a hackathon? We’ve had the opportunity to ask Yu-Ming Chen, the grand winner in NVIDIA Jetson™ Developer Challenge a few questions. Aged 22 he’s a senior in college majoring in computer science at National Tsing Hua University(R.O.C). The project that he was responsible for is Sim-to-Real Autonomous Robotic Control. Without any further ado, let’s get to questions.
Having a groundbreaking hackathon project idea is probably the most important aspect of your efforts to win a programming challenge. What you come up with will ultimately depend on the theme of the hackathon, naturally, but either way, we want to inspire you hoping that this piece comes in handy one day!
