Within the scope of the EU2020 project TEACHING "A computing Toolkit for building Efficient Autonomous appliCations leveraging Humanistic INtelliGence" we run a Hackathon on June 30th 2023 as a key dissemination activity at the end of the 4 years project. The distributed Hackathon took place in parallel in four different locations (Athens, Graz, Pisa, Bologna) and lasted an entire day from 9:00 to 18:00 (UTC+2). It saw the participation of 57 people including the organizers, several PhD, master and bachelor students of different universities and specialization courses. The main objective of the Hackathon was to develop a TEACHING application using the open platform developed within the scope of the EU TEACHING project.
The TEACHING platform allows to streamline the development of distributed AI-enabled applications with a Human-centered design. During the Hackathon, the participants were required to use the platform to build their own applications. A Raspberry PI 3B+ with a camera module was given to each team with a starting dev-kit to simplify the integration of a custom object recognition module. A minimal introduction to the platform and the dev-kit was also given during the day.
The Hackathon was successfully concluded with the award of the prize for the best team after a 3 minutes pitch from each of them.
