EVENT DESCRIPTION & DETAILS
You are invited to participate in our next Hackathon! It will be a joint Teradata Labs & UCSD event which will be held at the UCSD campus during the weekend of March 3rd. The signup will be limited to the first 100 responders. Attendance is restricted to current UCSD students and Teradata employees.
The theme for this hackathon event is Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Services. Leverage the complete Teradata product portfolio together with the new voice, natural language and image recognition AWS services, or bring-your-own deep learning and advanced analytics tools. The challenge is to produce smart and valuable solutions for the community using the data you bring. Here is an excellent opportunity to show off your skills in machine learning algorithms and explore the awesome power of Teradata technologies in combination with cutting edge cloud services and open source frameworks.
We will be providing a Teradata Unified Data Architecture environment (Teradata, Aster, Hadoop, Presto) along with supporting services (Listener, Viewpoint, Aster AppCenter, DataMover, Query Grid, Ecosystem Manager, and TDRest) in Amazon AWS so you will not need to worry about infrastructure, just bring your data. In addition, we expect participants to utilize various AWS Artificial Intelligence services (such as Alexa, Lex, Polly, Rekognition, Machine Learning etc.). However, feel free to introduce other technologies if you think there is a good reason for it.
