Pandemic crises, global warming, scarcity of raw resources and social responsibility are urgent issues, that are changing the way people think, and how they consume and engage with products. Consumers want to be more aware of how their patterns of consumption might make a difference, and they are demanding - transparent and sustainable - products from producers.
The main purpose of this hackathon is to develop customer-centric solutions for more mindful and radically honest products, with the help of AI and data sources.
This is why GS1 in Europe and GS1 Germany partnered up with atrify, Google Cloud and Auto-ID Labs to host its first Hackathon together!
GS1 is a Not-for-Profit standards organization, most well-known for its best seller: “The Barcode”. With it, digitalizing product information became fairly easy, and standardizing product-related information became their daily business. All that information is located and managed the atrify platform. This is one of the best product databases worldwide, with high-quality data; powered by Google Cloud.
We are curious to see what you can do with this data, and what creative and innovative solutions you can come up with. Are you up for the challenge?
The Hackathon will focus on three main topics:
Which should be solved using the following technologies:
- Computer Vision/AR/VR
- Text Mining
- Atrify API/ AutoID Labs EatFit API
Because the Hackathon will be spitted in two main design streams (technical Prototyping and Concept), we look forward to welcome people with various skillsets, such as:
