Teams from Wroclaw University of Science and Technology with awards at "HackYeah"
"HackYeah" is the largest hackathon in Europe, and the competition tasks were solved by more than 1.5 thousand participants. During the December edition, teams consisting of graduates and employees of Wroclaw University of Technology won three main prizes.
The recent hackathon was organized in the Katowice Spodek, but a significant part of participants solved the tasks remotely. The competition is dedicated to programmers who have to cope with a specific problem in a short period of time.
Over one and a half days of hard work
The participants had 40 hours to solve the problems set before them. The "YAI Team", which consisted of Dr. Jan Kocoń, Marcin Gruza and Piotr Miłkowski, tackled the task commissioned by the Industrial Development Agency best of all. The task was to prepare a system to optimize the hydrogen supply chain for the vehicle fleet. The team, consisting of staff from the Department of Artificial Intelligence, received a prize of 40 thousand PLN.
"Bards.AI" won two awards
The second team was represented by both employees and graduates of the Wrocław University of Science and Technology - Damian Brzoza, Karol Gawron, Michał Pogoda, Norbert Ropiak, Michał Swędrowski and Mateusz Zimoch. "Bards.AI" won as many as two main awards. The first one was given to them for the task prepared for the participants by the Institute of National Remembrance.
Entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs
The next award is a result of successfully completing a task commissioned by Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego. It consisted in creating a uniform search engine for grants for entrepreneurs and various public institutions - both in the form of money and substantive support.
The "Bards.AI" team won prizes worth a total of PLN 70 thousand.
