Join our three-day hackathon taking place during the last weekend of October. We'll provide you with a real-world dataset that has numerous apparent applications and equally many that are yet to be explored!

Cognite is Norway’s first tech unicorn, and a global key player in industrial digitalization. At the hackathon, they’ll present some real-world industrial problems they are currently working on. They will also present this year's dataset, which they used in an actual project.


Your job will be to come up with creative ways to use AI to tackle these problems, and possibly implement a prototype. Prizes will be given both for the best innovative ideas and the best prototype, with a combined prize pool of 20.000 NOK.


Lunch and dinner will be provided. All you need to bring is your laptop.

We’ll kick off the hackathon on the October 28th at 15:00 in S6. There we will present the dataset and provide you with some ideas on relevant challenges or directions you can look into. Throughout the weekend, we will have the room Landmålerhallen, which is tailored for group work, at our disposal. We will also serve meals, snacks and beverages throughout the days and provide assistance in the form of mentors!


On October 30th at 15:00 you’ll present your prototype or idea to a committee of judges. The judges will produce a short list of groups that will be invited to give more detailed presentations of their results at the NorwAI Innovate conference, Wednesday November 2nd, where the final winners will be decided and awarded with their prizes.


See you at the hackathon! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
