Some Pictures from Hack.IAA

Last week I attended Hack.IAA, a hackathon with a focus on Artifical Intelligence and Car-2-X Communication organized by DigitalLife@Daimler. 60 students had 24 hours to come up with new business models and innovative solutions. IBM provided access to the IBM Cloud and Watson and helped participants with technical questions. I had great discussions with the students and enjoyed the event.

The students used some of the Watson services like Visual Recognition and Conversation, technologies like Node, Node-RED and the Bluemix Delivery Pipeline for easy deployments and they got inspired by Internet of Things services like Context Mapping. Below are some pictures.
