Welcome Information with downloadable Hackathon Website



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.
