4 Stable St, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AB


To celebrate London Tech Week , Founders4Schools, Teens in AI and CogX are running a Hackathon to inspire young people aged 11-18 into Artificial Intelligence.

We are on a mission to encourage young people to pursue computing and technology, and promote diversity in this ever-growing field.

Diverse teams of 2-4 students will be designing a product that solves a challenge proposed with the use of AI, they will then go on to create this product and create a short 3-minute video pitching this product.

Challenges

This year we are focusing on UN Sustainable Development Goals. Within their teams, young people can Focus on any one of the goals and tackle them using open source machine learning tools.
