About Global AI Hackathon

The first Global AI Hackathon is taking place in 15 cities worldwide from June 23-25, 2017, attracting design-thinkers, developers, programmers, marketers and other related experts to come together for 48 hours.

Challenges will be announced globally during the kick off of the event, and attendees can pick one of the challenges to work on either by themselves or with a team. After two days of hacking and prototyping, teams have the option to showcase their projects on stage. Your local audience will pick three winners, one for each challenge, prizes TBD.

The current Global AI Hackathon is co-sponsored by NEC and Microsoft.

Why Toronto?

The recent pan-Canadian artificial intelligence strategy launched by the federal government has added $125 million into R&D efforts. We know the opportunities are here and we need the right people to get on board.
