We’ll open the hackathon on 20 October at 09:00 at the NorwAI Research Center. After we present the problem and give you the resources you’ll need to tackle it, you’ll have until the next morning to develop your idea. 


On 21 October at 08:30 you’ll present your prototype to a committee of judges at the NorwAI Innovate conference. The winner will be announced at 11:55 the same day. Hackathon participants are free to follow the NorwAI Innovate program at Dokkhuset on Thursday 21st after the pitching, including the keynote of professor Edvard Moser and the lunch that take place after the prize ceremony. 

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

Cognite empowers industry to create and innovate through software for a more sustainable future. We do it by making industrial data more accessible and meaningful for both humans and machines. To enable AI at scale, industrial domain expertise and data must be easily accessible in machine-readable formats. Our product, Cognite Data Fusion, provides the necessary infrastructure and tools to make this happen.

The Department of Computer Science at NTNU and the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering are both sponsoring the participation for students at the faculty. If you are a student at the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering you can sign up, free of charge. Please use the link below to sign up for the hackathon.

There is a limited number of places available for the hackathon and you may be placed on a waiting list. You will receive a confirmation from the organizing committee about your participation.
